Thank You Letters

Yasmine Naama

Program of Emphasis: Exploratory

Hometown: Medford, MA

High School: Prospect Hill Academy

Why I chose to attend Juniata: I chose to attend Juniata College because out of all of the colleges I was accepted, Juniata was the most welcoming. In addition to being extremely welcoming, Juniata also offered me the best financial aid package. After I received my financial aid package I attended an accepted students day where I immediately knew afterwards that I wanted to attend. All of the traditions and kindness offered here made me feel like I was at home even though this was a totally new and different place. It was a new place to call home even though I was at least 400 miles away. I grew up in a city and the peace that Juniata offers makes me feel like a totally different person. Boston will always have a place in my heart but Juniata's campus, academics and community offer a new home in my heart.

Clubs and Organizations: I have participated in AWOL and Eagle Ambassadors. In AWOL, I have attended meetings every week in order to learn more about what I can do to help with the community here on campus. For Eagle Ambassadors, I have been a lunch buddy for prospective students and I hope to become a tour guide some time in the future here at Juniata.

Most Interesting Class: The most interesting class I have taken this year was Intro to Human Communication. I had no previous background in communication so it was a new experience for me. I am extremely interested in how we communicate with each other and what that reflects about us. It also made me decide on a possible POE for next semester which I was hoping to accomplish in my fall semester. The professor was overall one of the best professors I have had at Juniata so far. She was extremely kind and a great teacher.

Favorite Faculty Member: My Intro to Human Communication professor, Dr. Cockett, has made a difference in my life because she has opened my eyes to the world of communication. I always find myself fascinated in her class and she continues to inspire me to pursue a career in communications due to her great teaching skills in the classroom. She also adds a personal feel to her lessons which I value a lot because it makes them more interesting.
