Name: Dylan Thomas
School: Newman University
Hometown: Wichita, KS
Major: Medical Field-Nursing
Dylan is a 2019 graduate of Bishop Carroll Catholic High School in Wichita and will attend Newman University in Kansas. He chose to attend Newman because he's been enrolled in Catholic school since kindergarten and wanted to continue his Catholic education into college. "It is important to me to feel comfortable expressing my faith, especially in a school setting as I ask for God's help and guidance every day," he shared. 

At Newman, Dylan plans on majoring in nursing with future plans of working as part of a team in a hospital setting. 

We asked Dylan:

What aspect of your college/university are you most excited about? 
I can't wait to see what all Newman has to offer and to be involved in different activities.

What was your favorite class in high school? 
Ceramics because I loved the teacher and the fact that I could physically work with my hands.

What is one tip you would share with students and parents as they visit college campuses? 
I would make sure to check out all the campus activities your school has to offer and find a school that feels like home and has a friendly environment.  Make sure to check out the teacher to student ratio so that you know you will have help when you need it.
