Celebrate Christopher Columbus Day (And A Day Off) With Miss COED 2017 Contestants From CSU, Rutgers, Ole Miss, & More!



We’ve scoured the nation to find the smartest, coolest, all-around most awesome college girls in the country, and we’re bringing them straight to you. In fact, we’re publishing five girls a day every day until we run out… which is a lot of days, TBH. You can thank me later.

From New Jersey to Utah and Ballet to Finance, it’s pretty safe to say that their interests are vastly different. Yet each girl is repping her school with pride and hoping to take home the coveted title of Miss COED 2017.

Without further ado, meet the next group of contestants. Who are you voting for?!

Think you have what it takes to rep your school? Submit to be part of the Miss COED 2017 competition today!

Katie Gooden, Louisiana State University at Shreveport


“I love empowering others and inspiring people to just be who they want to be. It doesn’t matter what society says; if you want to be a dancer, be a dancer. If you want to climb the corporate ladder, be the best business woman this world has ever seen. Being Miss COED 2017 would open doors of influence to continue inspiring others to live their best life.”

Jessica Crace, Colorado State University


“I major in Psychology and minor in Leadership. After graduating from CSU, I hope to continue my studies in a graduate program and eventually a PhD program. After all of this, I hope to work with PTSD in the military and research better treatment regimens to help men and women of the military who have experienced tragedies while deployed.”

Molly Winker, University of Utah


“Ballet with a minor in Health. I’ve been dancing since I was 4 and just never stopped. I love dancing more than anything; it’s my escape from reality. I’m planning on auditioning for companies closer to my hometown in Minnesota during spring semester. The ultimate goal is to be dancing with a company by next year! I’m also obsessed with animals, so I want to work with animal shelters when I’m not dancing.”
