Major: Marketing
Activities: Greek Life

I would describe Linfield College as a place that allows me to grow and push me to do my very best. The small classes and outside opportunities to meet up with tutors and professors are always pushing me to strive in and out of the classroom. Linfield College is also a place where your passion can shine through. There is something for everyone here on campus whether it be a sports team, a club, Greek life, a job, or even your dorm room hall, the ability to spend your four years on campus doing something you love comes very easy here at Linfield.

Hometown: Homer, Alaska
Major: Anthropology
Activities: Greek Life, Alpha Lambda Delta Honor Society, Consent Awareness Training Squad (CATS), Student Government, Linfield Activities Board, First CLAS Peer Leader.

I chose to come to Linfield because I love the small, community feeling campus offers. This not only helped me transition to life at Linfield, but it also allowed me to expand and grow upon my leadership skills. I have met so many amazing people because of this that I don’t think I would have met at a big university.

Linfield students come from a variety of different backgrounds and upbringings. There is a lot of diversity throughout campus and the awesome part about Linfield is as a whole, the students are welcoming of all others no matter what their background.
