Program of Emphasis: Peace and Conflict Studies
Hometown: Chester, VT
High School: The Compass School
Why I chose to attend Juniata: Primarily, I chose Juniata for the engaging and rigorous classes within the social sciences. However, within hours of my first visit to campus, I noted the strong sense of community that exists here. Since then I've been seamlessly accepted into the close-knit community and feel like I have a strong support network ensuring my success at Juniata.
Most Interesting Class: I've really enjoyed the introduction to Peace and Conflict Studies course because it combines many of my interests, such as history, communication and psychology. I've also enjoyed Communication Practicum, a required course for those who live on the World Floor, that focuses on multiculturalism and cross-cultural communication. It has been incredible to hear first hand stories surrounding customs and culture from my peers, many of whom are international students.
Favorite Faculty Member: While all the professors here are phenomenal, I would have to say that Dr. Grace Fala, who teaches the Communication Practicum course, has made a large impact on my life. By taking this course I have gained many skills in cross-cultural communication--something that is very useful for my living situation, future career, and life outside of college where I will often interact with people whose backgrounds and beliefs differ from my own.
I'd like to express my extreme gratitude to the donors that made my academic career at Juniata possible. With a degree in Peace and Conflict studies I hope to work with international mediation and conflict. Within this field it is particularly important to have internship or first-hand experience. By lessening the heavy burden of student loans, this scholarship allows me to hopefully pursue an internship that will provide me with the skills necessary to make a difference in the world.
Thank you again,
Class of 2017
