Why did you want to work at the HSRC?

I will focus on reaching out to more people about our textbook lending program and HSRC.

My favorite quick, yummy and cheap meal is egg sandwich. I just make an omelet and put it in toasted bread with mayonnaise and ketchup.
Do you have tips for students on how to save money?
My first tip would be to get involved with our HSRC. We have all different kinds of services that can help a student save a lot of money. My second tip would be to make food at home instead of going out to eat because I saved a lot of money when I stopped eating outside everyday.
What is your favorite thing to do in Corvallis?
Corvallis is all about nature. I love going to the different parks . I like to walk around Downtown Corvallis too in the night.
