CALS Student Representatives
I chose UVM because it offers a great Dietetics program. I knew that I would be getting a great academic experience while enjoying the laid back and earthy atmosphere of UVM and Burlington. Not to mention, UVM has a great environment to branch out and be part of various clubs and extracurriculars, and to find what interests you.
My favorite aspect of CALS is having a tight knit community and having introduction classes that prepare you for presentations and working with computer technology. These classes really do help develop oral speaking and technological skills.
After I graduate, I want to apply and receive an internship for Dietetics and then become a Registered Dietitian. I am hoping to continue my education and go to Graduate School for a degree in either Public Health, Psychology, or Food Management. At some point, I want to travel and join the Peace Corps so that I can aid impoverished third world countries.
My favorite class so far would have to be the elective I took my fall semester called Obesity, Fitness, and Weight Control taught by Lizzy Pope. It was entertaining, informative, and relative to what I dream of doing in my future (finding resolutions to combat national obesity).
I enjoy being a CALS representative because it is so easy to relate to the admitted students, and explain to them why UVM (and CALS) is the best college. I remember being in their spot while deciding on colleges, and I want to be as helpful as I can in aiding in their college decision.
Currently, I am a member of Feel Good, a national organization on campus that makes and sells grilled cheeses. 100% of the proceeds go towards The Hunger Project which a foundation set up to sustainably end world hunger. I am also part of the Student Dietetic Association for Dietetic,Nutrition, and Food Science Majors. In my free time, I enjoy running, yoga, meditating, spinning, exploring downtown Burlington, and taking part in Health and Wellness Residential Living.
