Why did you choose your major?
I thought it was a great combination - creativity and business. I like to solve problems and find solutions. It is the perfect major for me.

What motivated you to apply to become a Student Leadership Consultant?
I had friends who were SLC’s in the past, and I knew how much they loved their job. It seemed like a great place to work and develop more professional skills.

What is one way that you made connections with other students during your first year?
I tried to take advantage of everything possible. I connected with other students during class. I attended Leadership Weekend. Also, I joined several student organizations including Residence Hall Association (RHA), Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) and spent time in the Student Activities Center (SAC). Becoming a mentor through the College Discovery Program at the Ithaca Youth Bureau also helped me branch out into the community, and make connections off campus.
