Meet Sydney

Hey everyone!  My name is Sydney and I am beginning my junior year here at DePaul.  I am majoring in Public Relations and Advertising (woohoo PRAD!) and am minoring in Graphic Design. 

In order for you all to get to know me a little bit better, I figured I would list off some fun facts about myself:

  1. I am one proud Minnesotan and talk about how amazing it is a little too often.  What does Minnesota have to offer you ask? Well it has 11,842 lakes (We call ourselves the land of 10,000 lakes because we are humble.), the one of a kind Minnesota state fair with the famous Sweet Martha’s Cookies, beautiful views up north including Lake Superior and the northern lights, and lastly we are the home of the Mall of America!
  2. I have been vegetarian for a year, except cheating twice with chicken...but really, who can pass up Canes?  I love trying all of the plant-based restaurants Chicago has to offer (I love you, Chicago Diner).
  3. I try to go to a concert every month.  Some of the best concerts I have experienced while I have been living in Chicago are Lorde, Bastille, Miguel, Kid Cudi, and Ariana Grande.  I also saw some amazing artists at Lollapalooza over the summer including but not limited to Bruno Mars, The Weeknd, Dua Lipa, BROCKHAMPTON, Allie X, Jaden Smith, TYLER, THE CREATOR and CHVRCHES.
  4. At DePaul I am a member of Alpha Omicron Pi, have a radio show on Radio DePaul with one of my roommates (tune in for Sounds of Cinema on Sundays from 6-7!), am the Senator of Mission and Ministry for Student Government, work as the Special Projects Assistant in DePaul Housing Services, and have gone on two service immersion trips to both Los Angeles, California and Bladensburg, Maryland. 
​I am so excited to write about my many interests and all the wonderful opportunities I have gained by going to DePaul.  If you have any questions about living on campus, how to get more involved, or really anything pertaining to DePaul, I’m your go-to gal. :)
