Advice for Freshmen: As you start your college career it's common and normal to feel homesick.  It helps to get involved and meet new people, so hang in there -this feeling is short lived and will soon be forgotten.

Favorite WIU Memory:  During my last few semesters at WIU I lived in the Delta Upsilon house and one of my fraternity brothers was a fan of the Steve Miller Band.  It was not uncommon to return from class and hear the Steve Miller Band playing on the record player.  To this day, when I hear one of those songs, it brings me back to the fraternity house in the spring of 1989.

Family/Hobbies: I am married to Beth (Collins) and we have three sons Tyler, Andrew, and Justin (WIU '21).
