To help students like Jennifer, make your gift here.
Jennifer Suslo, a sophomore at MCLA believes the College offers a liberal arts education that can inherently connect knowledge across all subject matters while also establishing a bond between its community members. It is because of these qualities that she feels MCLA provides her with the right amount of resources and a strong support system tailored to develop her personal growth and help lead her to success.
As an English/Communications major, Jennifer wants to work for a publishing company with a concentration on editing, marketing, or communications. She values student development as a foundation for her future career, but also values the importance of time spent on her own personal interests and extracurricular activities. “I joined the Allegrettos my freshman year, and it really helped me find my place here at MCLA."
As an individual, Jennifer emphasizes the benefits of broadening your horizon and being open to new things. She believes the College challenges students to learn, to physically experience knowledge, and embark upon internships that provide hands-on learning opportunities.
Jennifer, a new member of the Phonathon team, pursued this experience in hopes of exercising her interpersonal communication skills and building connections between the current community at MCLA and the alumni community. Jennifer recognizes the importance of extending an affordable liberal arts education to students who wish to pursue it, and is proud to participate in a program that focusses on making current and future students education possible.
“I am determined when there’s something I want to do. When I have a goal, I set my mind to it,” and with this motivation, Jennifer seeks to inspire the members of the alumni community to help her and her peers increase the available resources for student scholarship aid. It is her belief that together, as one community, the students and alumni can make a true impact on the lives of others. A value that she feels all who have once called this beautiful campus in the Berkshires home can relate to.
