Hello, I’m Travis! I grew up in the booming metropolis that is Pipestone, MN.  During my senior year I had no clue where I wanted to go to college or even what I wanted to be when I “grew up.” So I understand what many of you are going through.  I ultimately decided to take my talents to South Dakota, and graduated with my degree in Secondary Education in December of 2009. 

Currently I’m enjoying working at DSUI just recently finished my first full year in admissions and had a blast traveling and meeting new students! Like I said, I’ve been in the same position as many of you.  Choosing what University you plan on spending the next 4 years at is tough!  My simple advice? Actually visit campus! You can’t make an informed choice without stepping foot on campus!

10 Interesting Facts About Me:

  1. I’m a huge sports fan! I’ll watch basically anything that’s on ESPN
  2. As sad as it is to say sometimes, I am a Minnesota fan.  Gophers, Vikings, T-Wolves, and Twins
  3. I’ve been to nearly every state in the U.S. 
  4. I’m a big fan of Call of Duty, even though I’m horrible at it. 
  5. I don’t believe in Ghosts… I got to see it to believe it!
  6. Other than sports, I’m a huge history buff!
  7. I actually like almost every type of music: Oldies to Modern
  8. I like to think of myself as a jack of all trades, but a master of none (yet!). 
  9. I love shoes! Hands down favorite thing to purchase
  10. Finally, I’m not very good at coming up with facts about myself!
