Continuing with an education in a big city, I plan on opening my mind to meeting new people, engaging inside and out of the classroom, and exercising my independence all while developing my identity and expressing myself as a creative individual as Notre Dame has taught me.
I chose Dominican University for the education program because I can earn a bachelor's degree, master's degree and credential in five years. Over the last two years at Notre Dame, I have learned not to be afraid to try new things because you never know what you are capable of doing. Go Penguins!
The moment I stepped onto the Notre Dame campus I knew it would be my new home for the next for years. ND helped me feel empowered to be a woman of impact and taught me that my voice matters and I can use it to speak out against the injustices in our society. I absolutely love the diversity, sense of community, and being a social justice advocate. I had the same feeling that when I stepped on St. John University's campus - the sense of belonging, comfort, and knowing that this will be my new home.
These past four years at Notre Dame have given me the biggest blessing - teachers that have made a huge impact on me. They are the reason I want to become a teacher. I am so grateful for the experience I've had here. It has made me a better person and put me on the right path to become the woman I want to be someday. I am so excited to move on to the next chapter of my life in the Notre Dame community.
With its wide variety of majors, UC Riverside is giving me the opportunity to study two in the form of one. By focusing on global issues and affairs, I am able to continue on my journey towards social justice and awareness, having begun it over the last four years at Notre Dame. I want to thank ND for exposing me to advocacy and global citizenship, as I will be carrying these two things with me to SoCal. Go Highlanders!
As I leave Notre Dame I take with me the loving friendships that I have made and the confidence I have discovered in my four years. I'm excited to continue my Catholic education, in the Jesuit tradition, and pursue my artistic and intellectual dreams at Gonzaga University.
Throughout my four years at ND, I have discovered new passions, cultivated incredible friendships, and developed a resilient mindset. ND’s focus on the empowerment of women and social justice-oriented curriculum has equipped me with the tools necessary to make an impact in my community. Northeastern’s emphasis on innovative, experiential learning, global opportunities, and eclectic culture have captivated me and I am ecstatic to start my next chapter in Boston! Go Huskies!
From Notre Dame I am taking my desire to explore diverse thought and interdisciplinary study, as well as my passion for service. I chose Purdue because of the unique structure of its compter science major, a track system that will allow me to explore really specific areas of interests. I look forward to bringing what I have learned at ND to Purdue’s distinguished CS program in the fall. Boiler Up!
Notre Dame has allowed me to become a woman of impact, find my passion in math, and has broadened my outlook into the world. When I visited UC Berkeley, I noticed that the goals of service, education, and helping one another were a huge part of their campus life. I am very excited to attend UC Berkeley this fall, and hope to continue my journey of learning and meet new people!
Coming from 13 years in Catholic private schools, I’m looking forward to continuing it at Regis. Regis is almost exactly like Notre Dame with their deep Catholic values, strong belief in advocating for social justice issues, and their dedication to service. I can’t wait to take all of the lessons I’ve learned here at Notre Dame to Regis and make it my new home. From Regent to Ranger, I’m ready for you Regis!
At Notre Dame I found a tight knit community that supported me as I developed my voice and discovered my passions. NYU offers many opportunities for me to continue to grow in the vibrant city of New York. I am very excited to spend the next four years at NYU where community and diversity are valued. Go Violets!
Notre Dame has made me a compassionate and empathetic woman who is active in the community and wants to make a positive impact on the world. The University of San Diego prides itself in creating "Changemakers," which I feel I have already started at Notre Dame. I will be pursuing the pre-medical track at this prestigious university and I look forward to serving the community through this!
