Fourth in a series of profiles of Oregon students who will be graduating in June. 

NAME: Crista Coven


MAJOR: History

CAREER INTERESTS: Student Affairs Professional, Leadership Advisor

WHAT I¹VE LEARNED: I have learned how to think critically about everything I encounter. Also I have learned to identify my strengths and apply them to anything I choose to do.

THE STAFF MEMBER WHO MADE THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE IN MY TIME AT THE UO IS: Chris Esparza, Associate Director of the Holden Leadership Center. As strange as it sounds he has really helped me identify my worth. He has clarified and affirmed for me all that I know to be true about myself.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT OREGON: I love the diverse environment — rocky beaches and lush forests. I also love all the school spirit on campus and in Eugene! I was born and raised a Duck and I can not imagine having done my undergraduate anywhere else.
