Hi there! I am Tessa Hollister, a freshman student at Central Michigan University. While here at CMU, I will be studying recreation and event management with minors in child development and leadership! I work in the summers as a camp counselor at Battle Creek Parks and Recreation Kidventure Camp (Kidventure Camp is the happiest place in the world, this I swear; sorry Disney). I am apart of the Leadership Institute as a Leadership Advancement Scholar. You can usually find me drinking Starbucks with an excessive number of espresso shots and laughing at my own jokes. I like smiling, sunshine, and making other people happy.


I am a proud alumni of Harper Creek High School in Battle Creek, Michigan (fire up for cereal, am I right?).

You will find yourself in some very unlucky situations if you spend some time with me, but I am a firm believer in making the best out of every situation. Being able to laugh at yourself is the biggest gift, because you will always have a reason to smile. I love this life I’ve been given and I’m happy to be where I am; Central Michigan University.
