What is Milwaukee's best-kept secret?

The festivals! Milwaukee is known as the "City of Festivals" and during the summer there is a wide variety of festivals that occur including Mexican Fiesta, Festa Italiana, Indian Summer, German Fest, Irish Fest, Bastille Days, and many more. My personal favorite is the Wisconsin State Fair. Not only are you immersed in Wisconsin culture, but you also have traditional Wisconsin cuisine at your fingertips.

What is one piece of advice you have for college applicants?

Unapologetically be yourself. The application process is the time for us to get to know you. Oftentimes students feel as though they need to tell admissions counselors things we "want to hear", but what we want to hear about is what makes you, authentically you.

How do you like your cheese?

I’m a huge cheese head! Although if I had to choose, with the huge sweet tooth I have, my favorite would be cream cheese on red velvet or carrot cake!
