Why I chose to attend Juniata: I fell in love with Juniata College the first time I visited. Everyone was so friendly and really welcomed me into the family, even though I wasn't accepted yet. Being accepted was an amazing feeling, because I didn't think I was going to get in. Getting that phone call from the Women's Head Soccer Coach letting me know that I had been accepted was amazing. I came to Juniata for the excellent academic programs, the family atmosphere and the relationships students have with the faculty.
Clubs and Organizations: I am a part of Social Work program
Varsity Sports: I participated in the Women's Soccer team for three years
Internship: I had an internship at the Health and Wellness Center at Juniata and also with Mainstream Drug and Alcohol Counseling. At Mainstream I did a lot of sitting in with clients. I also did some intake and assessing. Part of my internship was working with the After School Program that Mainstream held for children who were on probation.
Most Interesting Class: The most interesting class I have taken was Intro to Social Work. I found this interesting because it really was what I liked. Being undecided for all of my freshman and half of sophomore year was terrifying because I thought I was never going to find a POE I enjoy. Once I took Into to Social Work Practice, I knew this was the field for me. Therefore. learning about the main concepts in Intro to Social Work Practice was interesting.
Favorite Faculty Member: Susan Radis is one of the Social Work professors and she has really taught me a lot in this field. I look up to her because she is so experienced and I hope one day I will be able to be as experienced as she is.
Thank you so much for the scholarship. Being the fifth child in my family to go to college was a little rough on my parents, so everything helped out and is a major reason why I was able to come to Juniata. Without the donations, I don't think my parents would have been able to afford to send me to such a life-changing school, and I thank you for that. Juniata College has changed my life and I am so happy that I got the opportunity to be a part of the Juniata family.
