Who: Kim Zubke, Major: Apparel and Textiles, Hometown: Dickinson, N.D.
What do you recall from being a new student on campus?
“I remember feeling very lost. My roommate and I wandered the course of our classes before the first day to avoid that. However, I still managed to look like a tourist, pulling out my Campus Connection schedule every couple feet. After coming out of classes, everyone seemed to be on their phone. I felt compelled to call someone every time I ventured outside. The campus felt friendly though, so it didn’t take me very long to feel at home.”
“I loved the Bison football games! Thundar is by far the most entertaining mascot! The all-night Dance Marathon for Merit Care’s Children Hospital was very memorable as well. Above all, the friends I made through classes and organizations surpass any event.”
Zubke will move to Los Angeles to be near family and to find a fashion-related job. She plans a mission trip to Guatemala this summer, a study abroad trip to Europe next winter, and to train in image consulting.

“Make the most of every single day. Each year of college gains momentum. Looking back at the memories, I remember the relationships I built and the people I will miss dearly. Education and learning is the main purpose of college. But investing in others’ lives and leaving a positive legacy is priceless.”“Also, college is a time to discover who you are and what you stand for. Figure out your likes and dislikes, skills, and faith. These four years of independence will teach you countless lessons.”
