What memories do you have from University Lutheran from before college?
University Lutheran was my first church. Pastor Gary baptized me and it is really amazing to be know that I have families at different churches around Arizona; from University Lutheran, to Desert Cross, to Trinity Lutheran Church. Even though I was only a toddler, I can clearly remember going on Easter Egg hunts around campus and watching fish in the canal with my dad while we waited for my mom finish conversing after service.

What are some positives and/or challenges living on the polytechnic campus?
Positives would be less foot traffic and more nature than Tempe so it is really pleasant to walk around and see the bunnies, roadrunners, quail, and blooming flowers. The biggest challenge and negative would be feeling distanced from friends I have at other campuses.

What is your favorite part of LCM?
Just hanging out with people who understand and share the value of having a belief. Knowing there is always a community of people with the same faith helps ground me.

Why would you encourage others to check out LCM?
It is a welcoming community of people who genuinely want to know how you are doing. Having free food is also great along with nice people and laughter.

What is one thing you are looking forward to this year?
I am looking forward to learning new applications of math so that I can turn designs in my head into a real world product. I am also looking forward to different opportunities to travel with school and friends.
