Tiffany Hill

Tiffany Hill

Senator at Large
My name is Tiffany Hill, and I am a nursing student here at MSU-Northern. I was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, but I moved to Montana at the age of ten and graduated from Browning High School on the Blackfeet Reservation. I attend Northern because it's a smaller university where you are more than just a number. It's nice when professors know your name and who you are. Every staff/faculty member cares for the students and will do everything they can to help. If you need help with something, all you have to do is ask someone, and if they don't know the answer, they will help you find someone who does. Northern has the resources, tools, and opportunities to help any student excel and become successful in their future goals.

I am from North Lake County in Oregon. Growing up as a part of a small-town farming community, I love to help communities thrive and grow. As a part of that passion I have gotten involved around campus, I am one of your senators at large on the student senate, I am participating in the Peer Mentorship program on campus, and I am a leader with our Chi Alpha group (Christ Ambassadors). I have a great passion for vehicles, and equipment, as well as exploring. Which is how I ended up coming to Northern, a school 1000 miles away, to pursue an Agriculture Mechanics degree, as well as the Diesel Equipment Management degree. I enjoy mountains, bird hunting, and photography. I look forward to seeing you around campus over the rest of the year!
