Eric is sophomore from Clifton Park. He’s currently in the Lally School of Education studying Childhood Education. Eric is one of the students who will join us at Saint Rose Accepted Student Receptions, where we bring The College of Saint Rose to you!
1. What attracted you to Saint Rose?
The small class sizes. It was something that was really stressed to me as I was checking out the college, and it has proved to be a great aspect of the school.
2. What is your favorite place to visit off campus?
CHICKEN JOE’S One of the greatest delivery places you will ever eat at! It is not a very far walk from the campus
3. What is one of the most memorable traditions on campus?
My most memorable tradition would be move in day. It is really exciting to see all of the new faces as they come into their residence halls. All of the college students that serve as volunteers to move everyone’s stuff into their rooms are all filled with energy and excitement which helps make the overall experience even more enjoyable.
4. What do you do in your free time during the semester?
I enjoy spending my time playing Super Smash Bros with the other people in my hall.
5.What is one of your five year goals?
My goal is to stay at The College of Saint Rose for graduate school, and study literacy. Then I would like to teach in an inclusion classroom at the elementary school level.
6. If you could give one piece of advice to incoming students – what would it be?
Just do it! If you see a club that interests you, try it out! If there are random activities happening on campus, go stop by! If you want to talk to someone, go for it! Don’t miss out on any of the wonderful opportunities that come up at college!
7. Would you care to share a random fun fact about yourself?
I am a big fan of dancing. I’m really not very good at any specific type of dancing, I just like to move to the music!
8. Would you like to send a shout out to any professors?
Dr. Marguerite Lodico of the Educational Psychology department is an amazing individual!
