Thank You Letters

Veronica Kirchner

Program of Emphasis: Mathematics

Hometown: Lancaster, PA

High School: Lampeter-Strasburg High School

Why I chose to attend Juniata: I chose to attend Juniata College because of the unique opportunity to pursue a specialized major. Because I am interested in a variety of subjects, the Program of Emphasis that Juniata offers allows me to study multiple topics at once. I also was attracted to the social experience specific to Juniata. I was drawn to the friendliness of the students and staff due to the small size of the college.

Clubs and Organizations: I am an Eagle Ambassador for Juniata College, speaking with prospective students about the exceptional experience here. Additionally, I am a violinist in the Juniata College Orchestra. I am a member of Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and Catholic Council. As an active member of Catholic Council, I co-chaired the Giving Tree event this past holiday season and will co-chair the Empty Bowls event this spring. Besides the aforementioned clubs and activites, I am a DJ for the Juniata College Radio Station. Also, I am a liturgical minister for the Catholic mass here on campus.

Most Interesting Class: The most interesting class I have taken this year is Organic Chemistry. The concepts relating to the subject are of great interest to me. I originally heard that the class was a difficult course, but as I progressed through the course I found that the information was surprisingly easy for me to understand. My natural ability to understand the topics increased my interest in the class because I was able to extend my knowledge.

Favorite Faculty Member: Dr. Roth has made a significant impact on my life. As my advisor, she helps me to plan my courses as well as consider options for the future. Whenever I need someone to talk to about career options and further education, she has suggestions and advice. She shows interest in my ideas and has influenced me to pursue a secondary emphasis along with my Mathematics POE and Pre-Physician's Assistant requirements.
