Having been awarded the Dean’s Scholarship, I transferred to Drexel in the fall of 2014. During my first quarter, I noticed all of the outlets Drexel supplies to its students to succeed. I quickly got involved in student life, which has now led to countless opportunities in my student and professional life ahead.
I was admitted to the Pennoni Honors College in the spring of 2015, where I participated in Alternative Spring Break, the STAR student scholar program (summer 2015), and the Honors Student Advisory Committee (2016-2017 academic year) as their advertising director. I joined a sorority in the spring of 2015, where I held a chair position for 6 months. In the fall of 2015, I joined the Undergraduate Student Government Association (USGA) as the representative for Westphal College.
I love giving back to my peers, because not only is it benefiting their lives, it is preparing me for my professional life ahead
During my time as Westphal Rep, small changes were made to the community of the Media Arts and Design College. I was recently elected to an executive board position of the USGA, serving as their Director of Programming for the 2016-2017 school year. Even more recently, a colleague of mine and I started the Westphal Student Advisory Board (WSAB). Having been chosen as Vice President for this student organization I will work directly with the administration and Dean of Westphal to better the student life of our college. This coming summer, I will be studying abroad in the Czech Republic, and with plans underway for the 2016-2017 school year, I can come back in the fall with confidence.
On top of being actively engaged in the student life at Drexel, I work part-time in the Dean’s office at Westphal, all while maintaining a cumulative GPA of 3.6. I want to encourage fellow undergraduates to get involved in student life, as it serves as an outlet to better your time here at Drexel. It teaches you many life lessons that will come in handy down the road, like time management and responsibility. It feels great to see changes and student satisfaction with ideas of mine coming to life. I love giving back to my peers, because not only is it benefiting their lives, it is preparing me for my professional life ahead. In the end, I want to look back at my undergraduate experience and proudly say that I lived it.
