Student Profile: Chloe Secor
Clinton Township sophomore Chloe Secor has been blazing the campaign trails since she was 7 years old. She hopes to use this passion to improve Michigan, and she’s finding all the inspiration she needs as a political science major at Alma College.
“If you want to do something and really set your mind to it and work hard for it, there is no one at Alma who will tell you it’s impossible, and you can’t do it,” she says. “The opportunities are endless.”
Case in point: As a freshman studying immigration, Secor never thought she would wind up having breakfast with Wes Cosgrove, one of the most influential immigration activists in the country.
“I love so many things about Alma, but the sheer amount of opportunities I’ve had is incredible,” she says. “That’s why I came to Alma, though. I knew there were lots of study abroad options, opportunities to study at other schools and so much more.”
In addition to living at the MacCurdy House, Secor is a member of the award-winning Model United Nations team.
She also is president of the College Democrats, vice president of PRIDE and philanthropy coordinator for Alpha Gamma Delta. She says each of these experiences has helped her put the whole world in perspective.
“You can go and get an education anywhere, but there is a distinct difference in the Alma experience: It’s about getting out there and thinking about things you’ve never thought about before,” she says. “Even in this little city, you learn to care immensely about the world around you.”
