Former CSI Student
Jenni Vanhoozer completed 30 credits at CSI during her junior and senior years at Buhl High School. Throughout her four years in high school she excelled in sports (going to state three years in cross-country and track), academics (maintaining a 4.0 GPA), music (singing with the jazz choir, playing with a local band), AP Art (creating several murals and other art pieces for the community of Buhl), and served in various leadership capacities for clubs such as Key Club, Bible Club, and others. A 2007 National Merit Scholar, Jenni began her first year at Arizona State University this fall with nearly all expenses paid through scholarships.
Attending college classes on campus at CSI made Jenni's transition to a large campus (64,000+ students!) much less traumatic and allowed her to hit the ground rolling. Adjusting to dorm life, living 800 miles from home, and life in a big city came much easier because she had already experienced college-level demands and expectations. Additionally, CSI's excellent instructors in subjects such as US History, English, Psychology, Communications and others whetted her appetite for further academic stimulation, making her even more excited to continue learning and progressing in higher education. She feels well-prepared to tackle the rigors, challenges and opportunities university life has to offer.
