Hello, Midwest District!
My name is Susie Geiger (born Susanna Lea Geiger). I was born and raised in Abilene Kansas, the boyhood home of Supreme Commander of the Allied Expeditionary Forces in Europe and President of the United States Dwight D. Eisenhower (they taught me to advertise that as much as possible growing up). I am a junior at the University of Kansas studying Economics with a plan to pursue a Master’s in Public Administration and a career in city/county management. I have been a member of the Marching Jayhawks and proud KU Football enthusiast for three years. I played saxophone my freshman year, switched to sousaphone my sophomore year and never looked back. I have also been a member of the amazing Zeta Delta chapter since freshman year and served on the executive board for two years. Outside of Tau Beta Sigma, a few of my other involvements include Student Advocates for Financial Education, being a peer mentor for the Office of First Year Experience, and Alternative Breaks.
I enjoy watching bad movies, eating profuse amounts of movie theatre popcorn, going on road trips to the many treasures of the midwest, playing tennis, running 5Ks, looking at pictures of pugs, watching golden age Simpsons (season 2 through 8) with my sister, and doing/saying things so ironically it’s pretty much entirely sincere (Go Cats!). A few fun facts about me: 1.) I’ve had a fear of balloons since childhood (globophobia), 2.) I’m 5 inches taller than both my parents, and 3.) I’ve been on three “Clark Sanders Baseball Adventures,” so you can say I have lots of experience being the youngest person on the charter bus.
Looking forward to another great year on the Midwest District Council!
