I’m so excited to be writing for the Charger Nation blog, and would like to begin by sharing a little about myself.

I’m here at UAHuntsville as a Junior, but it’s been 8 years since my sophomore year, so I consider myself an “old newbie”. I’m majoring in Management, and leaning towards Information Systems. I’m a mother of 5 kiddos who inspire me to work harder than I ever have before. I have a passion for reading, though I must admit that the past few years it’s been mostly children’s books. I also feed my creative side by sewing when I have free time, which hasn’t been much, as of late. I’d love to consider myself a coffee snob, but I can’t afford it, lol. I also believe bacon is the best food group. My husband of 15 years is incredibly supportive of everything I undertake and is cheering me on as I dive back into academia.

Beginning my first semester as a Charger has been amazing. I’ve met so many great people, from faculty to students and feel like I couldn’t have made a better choice than UAHuntsville.  My advisor, Cheryl Plaza, helped to spark my excitement before I even set foot on the campus.  She sincerely believes in her college and passes that enthusiasm to the students she works with.  My instructors have been so helpful, answering all my questions as I reacquaint myself with college life.

One of the things I’m looking forward to as the semester progresses is finding ways to become more involved in what’s going on around the campus. There are so many things to do, and ways to find them. I’m following every UAHuntsville related Twitter I could find, added all the great Facebook pages and even checked out their Maptin app online.  This is definitely a college that feeds every aspect of the student’s life. Theater, music, technology, and even food…it’s all right here.  I have friends that are a little jealous because they chose a different school, but I’m really happy with my choice.

I hope everyone has a great week!
