My favorite place on campus is probably the residence halls because yes college is academics and that's what you are here for, however it's also a home for your next 4 years. For the past two years I lived with roommates and I was lucky to have great experiences with them. Now as an Resident Assistant, I can be that support system and mentor to other students. I want to give them the safe, healthy, and inclusive environment that I was given. It just reminds me everyday that I love the university because it's a home and by far couldn't have seen myself anywhere else.
Currently I'm focusing on my goals I have set myself academically, mentally, physically and socially. I just want to live life to the fullest and live life without regrets.
My favorite class had to be the Introduction to Marine Biology class because it challenges you as a student and you get to go out in the field every Friday getting hands on experience. You are learning what it really means to be a marine biologist and actually performing tasks and using equipment at different locations of Long Island Sound. Also, this is all being done in your FIRST semester in college.
I chose the University of New Haven because I just love the atmosphere here and how it's my second home. I like what the campus can offer as far as residence halls, extracurricular opportunities, resources, and so much more. I love the marine biology department here. It's a great 4-year program for undergraduates. The program is really tailored to you and the faculty is really engaging and supportive of your future.
