Graduate program: Audiology
About Candace: I graduated from Seneca High School (near Joplin) in 2008. In May 2012 I completed my bachelor’s degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders with an emphasis in Audiology from Missouri State. Currently I am pursuing my doctoral degree in Audiology and serving as a graduate assistant in the Office of Admissions. My responsibilities include interacting with high school students, assisting in office projects, and working with high school counselors.
What were you involved with at Missouri State: During my undergraduate career, I was involved in Alpha Sigma Alpha Sorority, University Ambassadors, Honors College, and Student Orientation, Advisement, and Registration (SOAR).
Best advice for future students: Coming to college can be overwhelming at first. Try not to let your nerves get the best of you though: remember that all of the other students are going through the same experiences. Even though they might be hiding it, they’re nervous too. So relax and realize that you’re not alone in the adventure.
