Why Oneonta

There are a lot of different reasons. I’m local; I grew up in Morris, NY, on a dairy farm, and it was important to me that if anything happened with the farm, I could be home to help my parents. I also really fell in love with the campus in general. I had a feeling of belonging and the sense that I could really get involved here. I also love the size of the school.

Best experiences so far

Being an RA has made me a better communicator and gotten me so much more involved and excited to be a part of campus life.

I've been an RA since the fall of my sophomore year. Being an RA has made me a better communicator and gotten me so much more involved and excited to be a part of campus life. As an RA, I love that I can be a relatable, first-hand mentor to students. One of my favorite projects that we do is our "Angel Tree" project. It takes place during the holidays. As a hall, we are assigned a family to sponsor. We raise money through things like "Penny Wars" or "Pie an RA" to buy gifts for all members of the family. It's just incredible to be able to make a difference in people's lives on such a local level.

I’m also a campus ambassador and a tour guide, and that has been an incredible experience. Meeting people and seeing people I’ve given tours to actually come here is so gratifying.

Plans, goals, dreams

I’m hoping to do an international internship over the summer. Asian culture is the healthiest culture, and studying their food would be so cool. After graduation, I want to be a clinical dietician. I’d really like to work with pregnant women or with women throughout the lifespan, maybe in a women’s clinic, because there are so many changes that we go through and I just think that would be so interesting. I really like helping people.
