Hi ladies! I'm a senior at Purdue University where I study Hospitality and Toursim Management. At Purdue I'm also a part of the Purduettes, a glee club of about 50 women. I've learned a lot from the organization and the women, which is where I get a lot of ideas for my articles.

Likes: swimming, music, everything Disney, Florida, and being organized

Dislikes: back pain, being inefficient, and days when I don't work out

To contact me, send me an e-mail at julie@everycollegegirl.com. I'd love to hear from you!
