Why did you choose your major?
I enjoyed theatre when I was younger but did not have musical or dance abilities and wanted to be involved in the production. I decided to help with publicity and press releases. It showed me the big return on marketing an event - the entire auditorium was filled! This led me to the Integrated Marketing and Communications program at IC.
What motivated you to apply to become a Student Leadership Consultant (SLC)? During my first year at Ithaca College, I started a student organization named Take Back the Tap. The SLC’s in the Student Activities Center helped me learn about how to do things, like request funding and make room reservations. The SLC’s were helpful. I wanted to serve as a resource in the same capacity to my peers, especially those interested in starting new student organizations.
What is one way that you made connections with other students during your first year? I lived in the First-Year Residential Experience (Talcott). I did not pre select a roommate–my roommate added himself to the room I chose. I became involved with ICTV, attended Leadership Weekend and signed up for lots of student organizations to meet new people.
