You’d never guess …
I have a twin brother. And I can ride my bike without any hands. Even when turning corners.

Road trip destination
With its “Great Faces and Great Places,” South Dakota—and more specifically, the Black Hills—is my favorite place to visit.

Book I’d recommend
The Will of God as a Way of Life, by Jerry Sittser, was a great book to read while going through college. I also really enjoy reading Christian suspense novels, so I would have to pick the Cape Refuge series by Terry Blackstock.

Best things about Northwestern
The campus green has to be my favorite place at Northwestern. It provides so much space for student activity and student life. And when I was a student, my favorite thing to do was definitely the annual Clash of the Classes.

College search advice
Don’t stress. Just follow that little pull that keeps pointing you to one or the other and go with it.
