Celebrating Seniors: Livvy Armstrong

Jaidyn Nelson, Staff writer

Livvy Armstrong is another one of our senior class members this year, balancing a rigorous and diverse course load that consists of classes which range from AP Biology to Pottery. For the last year or so, Armstrong has applied to and visited a number of schools, including Northern Arizona University and University of Michigan which is what gave her the ability to “discover her likes and dislikes and find out what it is she wanted.” She claimed that the process “was stressful at first,” but once she found her school it felt like “a weight had been

Her choice to attend TCU became evident because she said “she loved the campus, all of the available programs, and the overall campus culture.” When asked, Armstrong claimed she did in fact end up somewhere she was not expecting, since she has so much love for skiing and the mountains and did not foresee herself ever leaving them. Although, she is looking forward to “meeting new people and being independent.” Additionally, her older sister attends Southern Methodist University, TCU’s top rival school, so she is excited that she will only be 45 minutes away. 

Armstrong claims that her end goal with her degree is “to help as many people as possible,” which speaks loudly to her charismatic and personable character traits. Despite her not-so-happy feelings about sharing a room and bathroom with others, Armstrong’s nervous feelings about taking on such a new experience are overridden by those of excitement for life’s next adventure. Outside of the rigorous course load she can expect from her nursing major, Armstrong hopes to pursue outdoor club, service clubs, and a student ministry at TCU in the fall.
