STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

Allison King

Student Alisha Mikkelsen2012-2013 Recipient of: Chantal and Tommy Bagwell Scholarship

What do you like most about KSU?

I love that even though KSU is a big school with a lot of students, it can still seem like a small, close-knit school because of all the ways to get involved on campus to meet people and find where you really belong.

What is your favorite spot on campus?
My favorite spot on campus is the campus green, especially during the early fall/springtime when it is warm outside. I love to take my homework or study materials to the green in the afternoons... It's much better than studying in my room

What is your favorite KSU experience thus far?
My favorite experience so far is getting involved with CRU. I have made some of my best friends within the group and I love spending time with the other students involved weekly. Doing life with them throughout my college career has been so encouraging and fun.

What do you want to do after you graduate?
After I graduate from KSU with an Exercise and Health Science degree, I plan on going to Physical therapy school. I have such a passion to help people through the medical field and am really excited to begin my career.

What are you currently listening to on your IPod/Radio/mp3 player/computer?
I am currently listening to Chris Tomlin's new album that I bought this past week at Passion 2013 in Atlanta. Definitely one of the best experiences of my life.

Has there been a professor or class that influenced your current major?
There is not a specific class, but as I have taken many of the science classes, my interest for the medical field has peaked. With every class, I am more and more sure every day that Physical Therapy is what I want to do with my life.

Student Shelby Dixon2012-2013 Recipient of: Assistance League of Atlanta Annual Scholarship

What do you like most about KSU?

I like that class sizes are not always huge so you get to know people in most of your classes. Most of all, I love how beautiful our campus is.

What is your favorite spot on campus?
My favorite spot is the campus green. There is always something going on and yet it is a great place to relax too.

What is your favorite KSU experience thus far?
My favorite experience has been meeting one of my very best friends here. We met our first year living on campus and have been roommates and friends ever since.

What do you want to do after you graduate?
I want to become a kindergarten teacher and hopefully remain close to Kennesaw.

What are you currently listening to on your IPod/Radio/mp3 player/computer?
Taylor Swift

Has there been a professor or class that influenced your current major?
I just finished up a preschool curriculum class that reminded me how much I love my major. We covered so much and every class was always engaging. I was sad to see that class come to an end.

Student Ali Kamran2012-2013 Recipient of: Chantal and Tommy Bagwell Scholarship

What do you like most about KSU?
I like how small the campus is. It makes it easy to go a lot of places in a short amount of time.

What is your favorite spot on campus?
Anywhere in Prilliman Hall. It is beautiful and peaceful, except around exam times.

What is your favorite KSU experience thus far?
Going to see The Secret Garden performed Spring 2012. The show was fantastic.

What do you want to do after you graduate?
Work as a Labor and Delivery nurse

What are you currently listening to on your IPod/Radio/mp3 player/computer?
Arms Open Wide by Hillsong.

Has there been a professor or class that influenced your current major?
Dr. Tresham was an amazing lab professor. She really helped me grasp the concepts and criteria in ways I could remember. She was realistic about what we were studying and explained how practical the information is in her own life. She gave me confidence that I could pursue a degree in nursing.
