Why did you choose Goshen?

The reason I chose Goshen is because since the first time I was there, everyone made me feel appreciated and I liked how professors and coaches reached out to me to see how I was doing academically and athletically while still figuring out my college choice.

Why did you choose your major?

I didn’t know about social work and wasn’t familiar with it, but a friend of mine explained to me what the field was about. It interested me a lot because I have a passion for helping those who need guidance.

What career are you interested in pursuing?

So far I have only been interested in pursuing a career in the health care area, I want to be able to provide people with counseling and any type of information.

What is a valuable experience that you have had at Goshen?

By the end of my first semester of college, I realized that there’s nothing more valuable and useful than reaching out and using the tools the college is able to provide you with in order to succeed.
