Hey everyone!! It’s finally October and school is in full swing and I am so excited to be back for a 2nd round as one of #tbirdnation’s bloggers!
A little bit about me: My name is Laurel Jefferies and I am a 2nd year student at SUU. My major is Criminal Justice with an emphasis in forensics and a double minor in Psychology and Communications. I would love to work for the FBI and a criminal profiler. I’m only 5 ft tall and I have 6 brothers but no sisters. I’m always super busy and that’s the way I like it. It helps me to feel productive! I hail from a tiny town called Castle Dale, UT which could also be known and middle of nowhere, UT 😉 Despite being so small I love it and it is definitely some place I will call home for forever.
I have lived in every part of UT so I love this great state and everything that it provides! However, my favorite part of Utah is SUU. Yes, it really is, no lie! This school is one in a million. I know you’ve probably heard this from so many other universities, but SUU really is. From the faculty to the students, this place will give you the boost in life that you need to get you where you want to go. One of the coolest parts of SUU is that you can get so involved with the school through leadership and so many other opportunities. I was privileged enough to have been the president for Community Attaches (basically ambassadors for University Housing) last year and because of that leadership experience, I was able to become an RA! If you aren’t sure what an RA is, I’ll tell ya! RA stands for Resident Assistant. I work for SUU Housing and I’m a live in help for the students on my floor or in the building. I get to meet so many people for so many different places and it makes my day when I see my residents around campus. You probably think I’m a little too over excited, but just wait till you get to experience the same thing. SUU has opened so many doors for me and I know that they will continue to do so!
So if you’re ready to become involved, experience life in a whole new way, and have the time of your life, SUU is waiting for you!
Here are some pictures of just some of the things my friends and I have been able to do just this year!
