Thank You Letters

Eliora Smith

Program of Emphasis: Physics/Theater for Education and Social Change

Hometown: Trumansburg, NY

High School: Charles O Dickerson High Sch

Why I chose to attend Juniata: I chose Juniata College because it felt right. I can't really think of a better way to explain it--Juniata felt like home. I knew, also, that I would be able to learn how to combine my talents in theater and physics in new and unique ways.

Clubs and Organizations: I have attended AWOL meetings and am planning to attend a Women in Physics conference in January. I also participate in open mic nights, and performed at a recent poetry slam (which was preceded by a fantastic workshop on spoken word poetry that lasted about two months).

Most Interesting Class: University Physics and Intro to Theater have both been very interesting, and I don't think I could choose between them. I have learned a lot about different types of theater, and I am fascinated by the basics that make up the universe.

Favorite Faculty Member: My advisor, Dr. White, has been extremely helpful. He has been very supportive of me as a student and a woman, and I feel really comfortable going to him with any problems I have.
