What’s the weirdest food you’ve ever eaten?

Iguana eggs in Guatemala on a mission trip!

If you could bring back any fashion trend, what would it be?
Gris Student Support
Tube skirts and lace leggings. Like, for sure!
— Gris Ibarra, Student Support Coordinator

If you could become fluent in any language, what would it be?

Kaitlin Student Support
I have always wanted to be fluent in Spanish! I know very minimal Spanish, but it’s my goal to be fluent someday!
— Kaitlin Tuxhorn, Student Support Coordinator

If you could be in any movie, what would it be and what character would you play?
Robin Student Support
Definitely Grease! I’d be Sandy, solely for dancing with John Travolta and the end-of-the-movie makeover outfit, but Rizzo is honestly my favorite!

Cats or dogs?
Rachel Student Support
Dogs all the way! I love my three mini puppers and their snuggles. They make working remotely so much fun!
— Rachel Leonard, Student Support Coordinator: Supporting Elementary School Education Specialists

How do you like your eggs?

Amanda Student Support
Egg pie for sure! My favorite morning treat is to whip together a quiche! I will put anything in it! And it pairs great with my morning cup of joe!
