MCU is pleased to shine a light on a few of our students who are members of the Class of 2021 and are candidates for graduation for Fall 2020.

What is your degree?
Bachelor of Arts in Multidisciplinary Studies

What are your plans and hopes for after graduation?
My hopes after graduation is to continue completing my prerequisites for medical school while completing a master’s program in Psychology.

What is your favorite memory of MCU?
My all-time favorite memory of MCU is looking out at the view and promising myself that I would never give up. Life was hitting me hard and I remember standing on the grass gazing out and reminding myself that I am solely responsible for my success and regardless of how many times I think about quitting, no matter how many tears I cry, no matter what life throws at me, I have to keep pushing forward because great things take time and even though it is hard right now, I will be successful.

What advice do you have for other students?
No matter what life throws at you, never give up. Obstacles are meant to be conquered.

What was your favorite experience at MCU?
Living in the dorms and participating in the activities that were hosted by Student Life.

What was your favorite class at MCU and why?
REL 210 Death and Dying with Dr. Zanca.

Who inspired you at MCU and why?
Susie Martin (academic advisor) has been my backbone through it all. She has made sure I stayed on track; she has answered every question I’ve had no matter how silly they were. I would never be this far in my college career if it wasn’t for the help of Susie Martin. She has paved the way for me, I would not be graduating this December without her. Thank you, Susie!
