I'm Kris and I'm from from Worcester. I'm majoring in Exercise and Sports Science with plans to become a Physician's Assistant. A fun fact about me is when I was 6 years old I jumped off a moving train, and still have a scar from it. My favorite place on campus is the ceramics room. My advice for first year students is make sure to use your resources, such as advising and study rooms. You'll be surprised at how much they might help! Everything is trial and error, but if you're having a problem, it's very easy to find help on campus. Don't be shy to ask for help because it will bite you in the end.
My name is Brett and I grew up in Leominster and currently live in Orange, MA. I'm majoring in Human Services with a minor in Psychological Science. Ever since my first job working at the Leominster Boys and Girls Club, I've had a strong interest in working with, and servicing students that are in need. It is my career plan to continue a similar path I started so many years ago - working with youths that are potentially at risk. My advice for first year students is to get involved around campus, whether it is attending events, joining a club, or meeting with your professors.
I'm Paige and I'm from Rutland, MA. I am studying Psychology and looking to one day become a Behavioral Psychologist and work with young kids. A fun fact about myself is I have two nephews and I love to babysit and play with them. One of my favorite places on campus is the dining hall because my friends and I go to dinner together and have great conversations while we eat. My advice would be to join groups, clubs, or a campus activity that may spark you interest. It’s always nice to get out of your dorm and see what the campus has to offer because there is always something for everyone. Always ask questions even if you’re only a little bit lost or confused, your professors and tutors/advisors are always here to help you succeed.
I'm Rita Pires, I'm from Brockton, MA. I'm currently a Public Health major student, with a minor in Biology and Chemistry. As of right now, I'm not sure what I want to do with my degree but I'm very passionate about Health and wellness. A fun fact about me is that I'm bilingual. My favorite place on campus is my dorm, specifically the common area on my floor, it's a relaxing place to just vibe and chat with floormates. Advice I have for first year students is to try and put yourself out there each day, it really does make a difference!
My name is Nashani Swain, and I am from Brockton, MA. I am majoring in psychology with a minor in criminal justice. With my degree, I would like to go into counseling, although I am not sure if I want to work with children or adolescents. I am still trying to figure that out. My favorite place on campus is my room because it is nice and cozy. A fun fact about myself is that my favorite animals are butterflies. Some advice I would give a first-year student is to stay open-minded to all the new experiences college has to offer. You will have the time of your life if you are open to trying new things.
