Who are you?

My name is Sierra. I’m a student, and like most of you I have been as long as I can remember. It’s soon to be all over when I graduate this May… You could say I’m ecstatic and terrified. But I’m more than a student. I’m also a dog-lover, a nail-biter, and a fuzzy sock enthusiast.

I was born and raised on the east side of Madison in a family of seven. Yes, that means I have four siblings, and I’m the oldest. Sooo I might have turned out a little more “momish” than most.

Linda Belcher is my spirit animal.

Throughout high school I dreamed of one day being a Badger. I didn’t even send my application until the very last day at the very last minute because I had to make sure my essay was perfect. I still remember the date I was admitted – February 17th, 2011.

I got a job as a tour guide at University Housing the summer of my sophomore year. During my years as a tour guide I’ve answered a lot of weird questions and discovered different resources I didn’t know I (or any student) could use. My arsenal of  UW-Madison and college tips, tricks, and answers is pretty scary, and what would I do with them if I didn’t share them with you?!?

Why are you writing this blog?

I’m writing UW Badger Hints so I can log those allusive experiences, tips, and tricks I have picked up  to help future and current Badgers with all things college. This blog will be a place were students can come for answers, support, and entertainment. Maybeee I also want to live vicariously through you and repeat my years as a UW-Madison student. 🙂

Please remember that the views expressed on UW Badger Hints are mine alone and do not necessarily reflect the views of the University of Wisconsin–Madison or University Housing.

      Well shucks. Thanks Rebecca! I’m so glad you found them helpful. Midterms have gotten the best of me the this week, but I will be posting more to the series shortly.

      Let me know if there is a specific dorm you’d like me to post about!
