Why did you choose Cardinal Stritch University?
I liked the small class sizes and sense of community. Also, I received a lot of financial aid.
How has financial aid impacted your college experience?
It has greatly impacted my experience. I wouldn’t have been able to come to Stritch if I hadn’t received enough financial aid. It also gave me the most financial aid, which also impacted my decision to attend this university.
What will a college degree mean to you?
It means that I will be able follow my career path, have a better future, be more financially stable, have more opportunities, and enjoy what I do.
Have you learned something during college you didn’t expect?
I have gained a sense of community, and I didn’t expect that I’d love learning as much as I do now.
What are your plans after graduation?
After I graduate from Stritch, I plan to enroll in graduate school and earn a doctorate in clinical psychology, specializing in eating disorders, or earn a dual-doctorate in clinical psychology and neuroscience.
