More about Jillian’s college experience:  I was very involved in college and I have so many wonderful memories because of it! Just to name a few I was in the choir, Collegiate Fellows, an admission intern, in the Servant Leadership program and went on a couple of Spring break work trips. Choir was a huge part of my college experience and we took a very memorable tour on the East Coast—from Washington D.C. all the way down to Florida. It was wonderful! 

Studying abroad:  I spent the spring semester of my junior year in Norwich, England studying at the University of East Anglia. It was amazing! One of my best memories is riding the train from London to Aberdeen, Scotland with three of my friends—playing cards, sharing stories and laughing basically the entire way.

What impresses Jillian about CSB/SJU:  So many things! The true sense of community on campus, the commitment to diversity and the amazing people!

Fun facts:  I’m a pretty fun person! I love Post-it Notes, freeze pops and outdoor baseball games. I’m a very organized person and I really enjoy making lists…I know…I’m a nerd. I love to read and do “crafty” things like scrapbooking and making handmade cards. I was a three-sport athlete in high school, and I try to stay active as much as possible. I spend as much time as I can being a “super aunt” to my three nephews and three niece (see photos).

  • Movies: Reality Bites, Crash, Boondock Saints, Hoosiers, Dances With Wolves
