Physical Education

Since graduating from Alma

I got married, had a daughter and a son, and had a 30 year career Quality Control in the automotive industry.  I am still friends with many of the ladies I graduated with. I belong to two groups of women that get together every year to catch up and create new Alma memories.

My Alma education

did not specifically prepare me for the career I ended up having, but more importantly, prepared me for life. Probably one of my greatest accomplishments.

My favorite place(s) on campus included

the football field (for football games and the Highland Festival), Newberry Hall and Nisbet Hall (where I spent 4 years with the greatest women alive).

My favorite professors(s) included

Dr. Walser

My off-campus study experience(s) included

Camp Henry
