Carson Christensen comes to us from Layton, UT where he went to Layton High School. He is now a freshman here at Snow College. Carson chose Snow because of its amazing music program and plans on going to BYU after he finishes his associate degree.
He is a music major and is involved in the Cadence Choir. Besides making his brain work in one way with music, he enjoys making the other part of his brain work with math.
Carson works at the Testing Center and said, “The people who work there are the best! It is a fun job to meet lots of people. I love working there.” When he is not working, he is home singing, cooking, cleaning, and eating Butterfingers. One of his favorite things to cook is shepherd’s pie.
Carson enjoys going to the institute dances, especially when cute girls are there.
Before Carson came to Snow College, he went on an LDS mission to Armenia. When asked where he would go if he could go anywhere in the world, he replied, “I would go to Iran because I know people there that said I could stay with them.”
As the youngest of nine children in his family, Carson loved the TV shows “Even Stevens,” “Sailor Moon,” and “Alvin and the Chipmunks.” His favorite family vacation was visiting Mount Rushmore in South Dakota because it was the most memorable. It was also the only vacation where his family took pictures. His favorite sports to play as a child were dodgeball, kickball, soccer, croquet, and even though they are not officially sports, he loved Double-Dutch and Hula-Hooping.
His favorite family tradition is going Christmas caroling on Christmas Eve. Carson loves Christmas, “because we sing of Jesus, we are reminded of Jesus. The message portrayed in Christmas music is that of love and families being together,” he said. One of his favorite Christmas presents he ever received was a homemade scarf and sweater.
Carson was an amazing guy to get to know and laugh with. He hopes to get to know more of you.
