     While attending Augustana College, Ryen plans on majoring in Elementary Education. Her dream job after college is to be a hair and make-up artist in L.A. She chose Augustana because it has everything she was looking for in a college and because of lacrosse. Her favorite thing about Augie is the beautiful campus. Ryen is most looking forward to winning lacrosse games and making amazing new friends. When Ryen isn't playing lacrosse she enjoys working with hair and make-up.

     An interesting fact you may not know about Ryen is that she has played piano for eight year. Ryen's favorite foods are pasta and pizza and her favorite color blue. If Ryen could have dinner with anyone living or dead she would pick Iana Del Rey. A super power Ryen would like to possess is the ability to fly. Ryen's favorite sport to watch during the 2012 London Olympic Games was swimming.  Ryen is scared of breaking bones. She is inspired by her parents because they are the greatest people she knows. Ryen is the daughter of Julie and Dave Merhar and sister to Abby.
