Are you involved in the Honors, Leadership Scholar, MLK Scholar, or Park Scholar Program?

I am an honors student as well as a leadership scholar. I have participated in many classes catered to honors students, attended events from both programs, and have even gotten selected for several conferences that leadership scholars have the opportunity to attend, like the National Conference for College Women Student Leaders.

What is the best class that you’ve taken so far and why?

My favorite class so far has been my Journey of Aging class. It helped me find out that I wanted to study more about aging, and it gave me hands-on opportunities to see some of the aging practices we have learned about when we got the chance to meet and befriend elders at elder communities in Ithaca.

Is there anything else you would want to share with a prospective student?

I was in your shoes not too long ago! Even though the process can sometimes be difficult, just know that you have a lot of Ithaca College resources at your fingertips. Let me know if you have any questions!
