Celebrate the End of Monday With Miss COED 2017 Contestants From Bama, Northern Illinois & Iowa State

We’ve spent several months scouring the country for the smartest, coolest, all-around most awesome college girls to represent their schools in our Miss COED 2017 competition. Now we’re finally unveiling the school reps and why they love their universities. Today, you’ll meet three girls from across the nation, each from different backgrounds, with different majors and aspirations. Today’s girls hail from Alabama, Iowa State and Northern Illinois. From Animal Science to Human Development and Kappa Kappa Gamma to Alpha Delta Pi, there’s something for everyone. Get to know them below and check back every day to meet three new university representatives until voting starts October 12.

“Being small my entire life, I always heard ‘eat a cheeseburger’ or people would ask if I was anorexic. Being older now, I understand how hurtful that was. Society tells us to embrace ourselves but smaller framed girls take criticism for it. Everyone needs to embrace their body and quit skinny shaming others.”

“I love my college because of its location. I love that it’s far enough to to be away from home but close enough that if I need anything I can go home. I love NIU because of how large the campus is and all of the opportunities to get involved.”

“I want to be Miss COED 2017 because it’s something that I feel like would boost my confidence, and I want to be able to set a good example for myself to girls younger than me all around the country. When I got the message saying they thought I’d be a good fit to represent my University, it made me realize that I’m so much more than what I see myself as. I’m just excited to be given a chance. I want young women to feel more confident about themselves and realize how truly beautiful and amazing they are.”
