My greatest accomplishment at Alma is
Graduating with an elementary teaching degree in 3.5 years!
I'd advise an Alma freshman to
focus on getting acclimated and enjoy your first-year experience. I usually encourage my residents to limit themselves to being involved in one other organization/sport/activity their first semester and joining more on-campus organizations from there if they would like to.
I'd tell a student considering coming to Alma
When considering Alma, it is important to look at its current students’ experiences and outcomes.
What I like most about studying at Alma is
the support and attention my professors give me. They’re always there when a student is in need of any kind of support.
My favorite part about living on campus is
being an RA and building a close community for my residents.
I went to
Peru – During a Spring Term I went to Peru and experience the Peruvian culture. While I was in Cusco, I lived with a host family for a month and took Spanish classes and volunteered in a Peruvian Kindergarten classroom. Of course, while I was there I did plenty of traveling and got to experience a hike up Machu Picchu, living on Tequil Island, and visiting the Floating Islands on Lake Titicaca.
Ukraine – During the Summer of 2013 I traveled to L’Viv, Ukraine and volunteered in a family orphanage. During my time in Ukraine I had the opportunity to teach English to orphans at a Christian family orphanage camp in the Carpathian Mountains.
