How did you hear about SJC?
My dad accepted a job as Head Women’s Basketball coach and I followed him here. We were previously at Drury University and I had been here to play SJC in conference games.
Are you getting financial aid?
I did receive an Honors Transfer Scholarship. With this financial aid package, I don’t have to feel financially burdened for following my dad to a new school. It also eases my parents’ minds considering I have a sister who will be attending college.
Why did you choose SJC?
I chose SJC because of family. Knowing my family was going to move from Missouri to Indiana wasn’t an easy pill to swallow. However, when I came and visited, I knew I would be okay because everyone I met here on campus immediately took me in and helped me with my every need. Not only was I getting to still be close to my real family, but I knew I would have a family on campus also.
What are your plans for the future?
I currently do not know exactly what I want to do career-wise. I would love to live in or near Nashville, so I am looking for careers there. I am hoping that as my senior year goes on, I will have a better idea of what I want to do.
Do you feel that the Core Program has helped you?
I think Core has helped me in my other classes because I am more apt to speak up in discussion or if we are in smaller groups I don’t care to take charge. I am not the biggest fan of public speaking, but I have learned to handle it. I think Core will help me after graduation with my job interviews and really just with my life in general. Again, being able to confidently discuss my values and be understanding of other world views will be skills that I will use often throughout my post-college life.
