As the Honors Advisement Supervisor, Vika works closely with wonderful and smart Honors students in their quest to find unexpected connections, whether that is through classes, Honors thesis or events and activities. She says the best kept secret at BYU is the Maeser Building - home of the Honors Program!

I get most excited about my work when... I know I have made a difference in a student’s life. I always look for opportunities to help and support students as they navigate the whole education system here at BYU.
