Early Childhood Education

To my fellow graduates, we made it! Regardless of the hardships that have come along with Spring 2020, we made it through the past few years of being at Southern! I’m so excited to see how everyone prospers after graduating southern, and hopefully sharing a commencement ceremony in the coming days!

Favorite Time at SCSU

My favorite part about my time at SCSU was living in New Haven for the time being. I loved being around the delicious food, the fun nightlife, the city, the history, the art, and all the memories I’ve made!

What are you going to miss the most, and what are you looking forward to the most?

I am going to miss living in the dorms and all the friends that I’ve made and lived with throughout my years at SCSU! Living at Southern in North campus was the first time living away from home and I wouldn’t regret a thing about it. I enjoyed all of my roommates that I’ve had the pleasure to live with and I am looking forward to keeping the friendships that I have made along the way. I am also looking forward to my future career and being able to work with children in some manner and get to express myself through arts. I also look forward to possibly going off to get my Masters eventually!

Advice to Incoming Students

My advice to give to incoming students would be to live each day to the fullest, because before you know it your college years of living free, eating junk food and being within walking distance of your closest friends comes to an end. I would also say that it is okay to go beyond your major to take other classes that interest you and possibly change your major if what you started is not what you end up wanting to do in the long run.
