     Bridget plans on majoring in Biology/Pre-Occupational Therapy. Her dream job after college is to be an FBI agent.   Bridget chose Augustana College because she loves the campus and the people here; it feels like home.  Her favorite thing about Augie is the people.

She is inspired by her mom because she is a superwoman.  Bridget is the daughter of Jim and Kate Conniff and sister of Noreen, Clare, and Kevin.
