Are you getting financial aid and if so, what kind? How is it helping you to attend SJC?
I have an SJC scholarship and a Music Performance Scholarship. These scholarships make it more affordable for me to attend this school. It reduces the heavy burden it places on my wallet.
Why did you choose SJC?
There are a limited number of colleges in Indiana that offer both Chinese and Psychology. I was looking for a small college, and thought SJC to be the perfect choice. I love that our religion and education are equally important.
What are your plans for the future or what career plans do you have?
I aspire to be a counseling psychologist for children and adolescents. I also hope to go overseas and teach and interpret Chinese.
How do you feel about the Core Program?
Core is a great program. I love that we have lectures twice a week, followed by a discussion and writing class. I believe it is very important to be able to use all three skills to fully understand the information. Core is a great way to achieve this.
Core has helped me improve my writing and critical thinking skills. After graduation, I will be able to use all of the information I learned in Core to help me during graduate school.
Get a jump start on your career and have your resume ready to go at graduation.
Small colleges offer you personal attention; SJC professors do more for you—they serve as mentors.
The Core Program is all about you and your role in the world.
You get more deeply involved at SJC, so you get more meaningful experiences that prepare you for career and life.
Get real-life experience and become an excellent communicator.
