- Pickerington, OH
The best advice Jordan (she/her) has ever received comes from her dad: “Don’t be a chicken–be an eagle and soar.” She will follow these words of wisdom and push herself to expand her horizons at IU and is eager to try new things and meet new people from all over. She plans to major in psychology and study abroad in Madrid, Spain, to experience the culture and improve the Spanish speaking skills she’s been working on for years. Her favorite books are Little Women by Louisa May Alcott, The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell, and The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom. The happiest place on Earth is also her favorite place on Earth – Disney World! She also likes baking chocolate chip cookies and watching the movie Mamma Mia. Jordan would like to thank her mom and dad for always believing in her, supporting her, encouraging her, and instilling in her a love of education from an early age. She is the fourth Scholar from Columbus Academy and will hold the Krannert Charitable Trust and the D. Walter Robbins scholarships.
