- [00:00:01.685]I'm Blayke. I'm from Aurora, Nebraska.
- [00:00:03.792]I am studying hospitality restaurant tourism management in the College of Education and Human Sciences.
- [00:00:09.675]I stumbled upon hospitality. I'd like to say it kind of found me.
- [00:00:14.082]I just kind of jumped into the major not really knowing if it would stick and my classmates and I had so much in common
- [00:00:19.489]that it just really became evident that hospitality was where I fit.
- [00:00:24.887]I've been playing golf since I can remember. My dad always took us out on the course when we were little.
- [00:00:30.070]He made a point to say that it's not just an activity that you play and, like, you go for a score;
- [00:00:33.946]it's something much more than that. It's more about letting the day kind of wash away and just having fun.
- [00:00:40.914]I've never walked away from golf more stressed than I was when I went out there.
- [00:00:44.651]The best moment for me is when I'm on top of the tee box and I just have my club in my hand
- [00:00:50.366]and I'm just, you know, rolling my club and I just look down the fairway and I don't see the hole yet even, but I just know I just
- [00:00:58.027]have this one shot. That's all I'm focusing on, and it's such a stress reliever because it's always one thing.
- [00:01:05.291]The social scene in Lincoln is really fun. There's lots to do, whether it's going to The Railyard, or a concert at the
- [00:01:11.467]Pinnacle Bank Arena or down to The Haymarket to a coffee shop. Get a ride in the rickshaw.
- [00:01:17.383]The degree I get is going to be so diverse because I can do so much with it.
- [00:01:21.927]I definitely want to be an entrepreneur and own my own business someday.
- [00:01:25.298]I don't know if it will be in events, or it will be in a venue or if it will be a restaurant, but I get to decide and that is
- [00:01:32.024]what's great about the hospitality major: it's so diverse, it kind of sets you up for success to own your own business.
