Why did you choose St. Scholastica?
I chose St. Scholastica for the amazing atmosphere that I experience here. I love how faculty, staff and coaches get to truly know you; you're not just a number. The good reputation of St. Scholastica will help me as I look for a job.
Why did you choose your major?
I have always had a passion for children so it seemed natural to channel that through teaching. I absolutely love the program here at St. Schoalstica and the professors who make the classes worthwhile and interesting. After going through the education program, I feel ready to be given my own classroom and know that I can count on my education to help me along.
Do you participate in any extracurricular activities; if so, why?
I play volleyball at St. Scholastica and absolutely love it. I'm also involved with Student Athletic Advisory Council and the Education Association. Being involved with a some sort of group or team makes the college experience so much better because you have your team to turn to and to look after you.
What are your post-graduation plans or goals?
After graduation I plan on going on a trip to Europe with my mom that we have been planning since I was in high school. Then I plan on working abroad in either a teaching capacity or in missionary work with my boyfriend. After that, I want to find a classroom somewhere that will hopefully also let me coach!
What are your best campus experiences? What will you always remember?
As much as we "hated" them at the time, I'll never forget the memories from Somers Hall fire drills and that first year of staying up until three almost every night. Just hanging out and meeting new people. Dinners with the Teacher's Lounge (group of education professionals) will never be forgotten. As a college athlete, my sport is obviously important to me. Preseason volleyball is something that has to be experienced to truly understand...but I would not trade that time spent with my volleyball ladies and Dana Moore for anything!
Did we miss something you’d like to share? Add it here...
Don't be afraid to take a class that doesn't have a lot (or nothing) to do with your major! Some of the most influential classes I've taken were exactly those. Take a chance and risk it. I'll guarantee you'll learn something valuable about yourself or even gain new insights into your major or collegiate experience.
