It's that time of the year again, where classes are slowly creeping to an end and, unfortunately, for our seniors to graduate. But it brings us finally to Senior Spotlights! Every week we'll be releasing a new post on each of our seniors who have reflected on their time here at Ball State University and the Iota-Alpha Zeta of Lambda Chi Alpha!
First up on our list is IA-1793 Evan Ziebell!
We first asked Evan if he had any post graduation plans and this is what he had to say:
"I hope to work for a public relations agency."
For our next question, we asked what was his favorite memory of being a Brother of Iota-Alpha:
"My favorite memories are of the times I've spent with brothers away from BSU and the school year. One of the most defining experiences I've had as a brother would have to be the summer I spent as an Intern for our International Headquarters Office. I grew as a professional and also became even closer to the brotherhood, as I worked alongside brothers of all ages every single day. Some of my other favorite memories include trips I've taken with brothers over spring breaks and summer."
We then asked Evan what were going to be some things about Ball State University that he'll miss:
"I will miss the community and opportunities that Ball State has to offer. This campus gives students the chance to learn so much through higher education above and beyond the classroom. I'll definitely miss the close friendships I've made and the mentors I have been blessed to work with. I have been heavily involved in student organizations during my time here, so it will be hard to say goodbye to this huge part of my life. I owe so much of who I am today because of the experiences I've had here at Ball State University."
Finally, we asked Evan for any advice he'd like to give to incoming freshmen:
"Work hard in the classroom and take your studies seriously. The transition from high school to college can be tough, so make sure to allow yourself a lot of time to focus on your education. However, get involved in at least one group or activity during your first semester. A student organization can allow you to find where your passions lie, beyond just what you are studying with your degree. The skills you can gain from being involved in an organization can help you tremendously."
Thanks Evan for your reflections on your time here at Ball State and the Iota-Alpha chapter, stay in touch!
