Plans after graduation

After traveling around the world, I plan to gain experience working in art gallery and museum settings as well as exhibiting my own artwork. I want to eventually get my Masters in Art and teach at the university level.

How did Augustana prepare you for life after graduation?

Augustana helped me better develop my interests and skills and assisted me in determining the career and life I wish to pursue.

What are you looking forward to about life after graduation?

I am looking forward to finally entering the professional world of art.

What will you miss about Augustana?

I will miss being in a structured learning environment conversing with diversely intelligent peers. I will also miss the satisfaction of finally turning in a research paper after spending all night in the library finishing it because of extreme procrastination.

What was your favorite memory from Augie?

I have way too many great memories, most which include the amazing group of friends I have made at Augustana.

What advice would you give to current students?

I advise current students to pursue their true interests in subjects and not just major in something that will translate easily into a job. Do what you love.
