Thank You Letters



Valeria Kolesnik

Program of Emphasis: Psychology, Pre-Med

Hometown: Harrisburg, PA

High School: Central Dauphin East Senior HS

Why I chose to attend Juniata: My choice of a college was driven by my professional career goal of becoming a physician; therefore, MCAT preparation and transfer rates to quality medical schools were my utmost considerations. Being honored with the JSF Scholarship made the selection easy since it enabled me to attend a top undergraduate Pre-Med school with a 94% transfer rate, and with students obtaining entry into the best medical schools including Johns Hopkins, which I hope to earn entry into.

Clubs and Organizations: I participate in the Psychology Club and I plan to participate in the Chemistry Club and HOSA next semester.

Most Interesting Class: The most interesting subject is Biology because of how it relates to my academic goals in medicine; however, it has also proven to be my most challenging course.

Favorite Faculty Member: My Biology Professors, Professor Muth and Professor Matter, helped me tremendously to recover from a difficult start. They both provided and continue to provide personal tutoring whenever I need it, and for that, I am sincerely grateful to both of them.
