Get to know Jessica:

Hometown: Green River, WY and Slaterville, UT

Degree: Bachelor of Arts, Biology/Zoology Emphasis 2007 - Southern Utah University

Favorite Building on Campus: The new Science Building. It’s officially, the L.S. and Aline W. Skaggs Center for Health and Molecular Sciences. It’s beautiful, filled with amazing technology and has a greenhouse on the roof!

What little known fact about SUU do you like to share most? That the school colors used to be coral and turquoise and that there are tunnels under the campus.

Favorite Quote: "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent." – Eleanor Roosevelt (at least that who it’s accredited to).

Best bit of advice for students looking for a college/university? Don’t go to a certain college just because everyone else went there (parents, siblings, friends). Go to a college where you want to go and where you will fit in and where you are comfortable. College is all about you.

Most embarrassing "college" moment: During Valentines one year, a boy in my history class had a quartet from the Institute sing “My Girl” to me in front of the entire class. My face was so red that I am sure the front row could feel the heat coming off my face.

Years working at SUU: 2 Years
