What will you major in/study? Mathematics and Secondary Education
Why did you choose Lindenwood? “I chose Lindenwood because of the players, the coaches, and how beautiful the school is. The fact that they have both majors I want to study and a back up major in case of a change in interest, were also reasons.”
