Anderson said enjoying the university’s campus has been one of the best parts of her time as a Tommie. Anderson said the university is “beautiful, rich in history and full of school pride, and our location in St. Paul, near downtown Minneapolis and by the Mississippi River, adds to the fun environment.”

Thrifting and bargain hunting are hobbies that Anderson said make her unique.

“I love to buy things at thrift stores and secondhand shops. It’s always a fun adventure finding some classy and crazy things for really cheap prices,” Anderson said.

After graduation, Anderson said she wants to work with young students either teaching in a classroom or in an after-school program or health organization. Anderson said her dream job would involve young students in theater, music and the arts. She said she wants to live her life “in a way that glorifies God, proclaims the Gospel and shares the joy of Christ with others.”
