Hi! My name is Mika Bishton. I am a junior majoring in Conservation Biology. My favorite thing to do while on campus is to watch all the wildlife: birds, squirrels, and the occasional bunny. I am excited to meet you!

 

 

 

Hi! My name is Megan Childs and I’m a junior majoring in English: Creative Writing. In my free time you can find me consuming cheesy romance media at an unusually rapid speed while eating pickles with peanut butter (seriously, try it).
