Involvements at ACC

Favorite thing about Northern Michigan?
The relaxing and friendly atmosphere

Who at ACC has influenced you the most?
For me this is a difficult one because all of the professors are excellent at what they do. I'd say the one who has been the greatest influence is my advisor and professor, Mr. Tosch.

Where is one place that you want to visit?
I would very much enjoy a trip to Alaska.

Any hidden talents?
To further challenge my skills, I began riding the unicycle just a few years ago.

What made you choose ACC?
It's a convenient location with excellent learning opportunities.

Current song that he's got on repeat 
"Impossible" by Building 429

Random fact?
I have completed 15 running marathons.

What advice would Isaac give to future Lumberjacks?
If ever any questions arise pertaining to the subject at hand or even to what’s happening in your life at the moment, ask your professor. They have been there and have the experience and wisdom to help you with whatever it may be.

Anything else you want to add?
An education from ACC is well worth the time and effort!
