Logan Eilert is a freshman from Beloit, Kansas majoring in Elementary Education with an emphasis in special education. She chose to pursue a career with education because she loves children and thinks they’re a joy to be around. Eilert hopes to make an important impact on children lives.
Even though she wants to teach in a school setting, her dream job has her teaching all sorts of ages.
“My dream job would be a skydiving instructor,” said Eilert. “I think it would be a blast and a thrill every single day.”
Eilert is so passionate about her major that she decided to become more involved with the College of Education.
“I was just selected to be an education ambassador for the College of Education here at Kansas State,” said Eilert. “I am so excited to share my love for education with others. These experiences allow me the opportunity to develop connections with others in my field of study as well as help those who are interested in Education.”
Along with developing connection with her classmates, Eilert continues to grow her connections throughout Theta and why she made it her home away from home.
“I chose Theta because it felt like home,” said EIlert. “I am surrounded by a great group of girls who keep me balanced socially and academically. Theta has benefited me by giving me countless opportunities to get involved. I am playing on an intramural basketball team for Theta and it is so fun to get to know some of the other girls in the house through something I am so familiar with. Theta has also lead me to meet so many amazing people and form those connections that will carry with me the rest of my life.”
Theta has made an admirable impact on Eilert’s life, but a particular person has enhanced her college experience even more.
“Lauren Ailslieger is the one person who has really impacted my college experience,” said Eilert. “She is one of my best friends and really pushes motivates me to try new things and to step out of my comfort zone. She has taught me how to live life to the fullest and how to keep a positive attitude all the time. I am so glad to have such a great friend and motivator like Lauren!”
