Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2015

John Carroll University was a school that challenged me intellectually and pushed me socially and emotionally. The Sociology and Criminology department, headed by Dr. Harris, forced me out of my comfort zone, making me experience my learning first hand. Throughout the many courses that I took, I had to go out into the field and actually learn; I did not just sit in a lecture hall and take notes every day. One class in particular that has had a lasting impression on me was my Prejudice and Discrimination Class. During this class, we had an assignment where we had to go out into the community and look at the world though the eyes of someone in a wheelchair. This was not an easy assignment to do because it forced my out of my comfort zone. Fortunately, I do not rely on a wheelchair to get around so this assignment was challenging. Until that point I had never realized how fortunate I was to just walk over a curb to get into a restaurant or how easy it was to pick a seat out in a movie theater. After completing this assignment, my eyes were opened to how the simplest of things for one group of people can be the hardest part of another groups day. The four years I spent at John Carroll University shaped the person that I am today and I could not be prouder of working to ensure that students from disadvantaged background receive the quality education and opportunities they deserve.
