Dog Days

Madisen, Orientation Leader

Madisen Krohn

Hi friends! My name is Madisen Krohn and I am going to be a junior in the fall. I am majoring in Liberal Studies and minoring in Child and Family Science in hopes of becoming an elementary teacher! Some of my favorite things are going on walks with my dogs, iced caramel lattes (or coffee in general), chicken nuggets, and listening to Taylor Swift!!
