A little bit about me: I am originally from Bear-Creek, PA! My home is decently close to campus, roughly twenty-five minute away. This coming year, I will be living in the YMCA whereas last year I was a resident in Towers. My freshman year I commuted from home and decided moving to campus would be more beneficial to me as a student. On campus I am a part of the e-Mentor program, the Men's Golf Team, and research with Dr. Kadlec.

A little bit about me: I am from Denver, PA located in Lancaster County. I chose Wilkes University because they have an amazing Pharmacy program, the faculty and staff are genuine and truly care about everyone at Wilkes, and I loved the small campus atmosphere the moment I stepped foot on campus. I will be a P1 student in the Fall 2016 semester. I am actively involved on campus and my goal is to help you find your fit in extracurricular activities at Wilkes. I am a Resident Assistant, the Executive Treasurer for Student Government for the 2016-2017 year, and I have the amazing privilege of being a first year e-Mentor this year. I recently got hired at CVS Pharmacy as a Pharmacy Intern, where I hope to make an impact on each person that comes to my Pharmacy.

I am a member of our BACCHUS club, which is a university and community-based network that focuses on the health and safety of students. I am also a member of the Education Club here. We fundraise and donate money frequently and are always trying to help children in community. In the fall, I will be a writer for The Inkwell, which is a newsletter written by faculty, staff, and students in the English Department. I am currently a member of Sigma Tau Delta, the English Honor Society, and Kappa Delta Pi, the Education Honor Society. In addition, I have a few leadership and professional roles on campus: I am an e-Mentor, a Resident Assistant (RA), and a Lead Student Ambassador in the Admissions Office at Wilkes.

A little bit about me: I am originally from Binghamton, NY and will be starting my junior year here at Wilkes. Coming from out-of-state, I understand that the transition into college can sometimes be difficult, so I want to be here if you need absolutely anything at all as you start your first year. On campus, I work for the Biology Department as a Teaching Assistant in labs, and as a tutor. Additionally, I am the Student Coordinator for a program called Women Empowered by Science (WEBS) and I am a chair member of our Relay for Life Club. Since I am also Pre-Med, I am a part of our school's Pre-Professional Health Society. I would encourage you to become as involved as possible on campus, while balancing your workload. Through these activities, I have been able to make amazing friends, have gotten to know professors very well, and have made incredible memories here at Wilkes. I was in your position once, and realize that although you have many opportunities ahead of you, it can all seem overwhelming at times. I want to let you know that I am someone you can come to with any questions at all, and I recommend taking advantage of every opportunity you can! Becoming an E-mentor at Wilkes was an easy decision due to my appreciation for the University's "family like" community, where we all want to help you to succeed.

A little bit about me: I am originally from Franklin, NJ. It's a really small town in Northwest New Jersey, right between New York and New Jersey. I am a total animal lover! I have two cats and two dogs, so I try to stay impartial on the cats vs. dogs fight. I also have a pond full of koi fish. I really love art and photography! If I'm not doing homework, I'm most likely drawing or making a friendship bracelet or taking "artsy pics" (or watching Netflix). I really want to travel! I feel like there's so much history and art and so many beautiful places in the world to see! As a warning I'm just letting you know, I use a lot of exclamation points! I love all of the opportunities to get involved in Campus and the community around us that Wilkes provides!
