Arianna P.

Class Year: 2015
Hometown: Holden, Massachusetts
High School: St. Peter Marian Central Catholic
Major: Psychology with a concentration in Counseling and Health

  • Place on Campus: The study rooms in the Wilkens Science Center.
  • EC Tradition: Spring Day of Service.  
  • Thing about Emmanuel: The community - from school spirit to academics, it's really a place where I feel supported and appreciated.
  • Class: Counseling Theories. The class really helped me focus on what I want to do, career-wise, once I graduate.  

Why you came to EC: I came from a small Catholic high school and I wanted a small Catholic college, because it was the type of environment I thrived in. Furthermore, Emmanuel's location offers a lot of opportunities both on and off campus.

What three things would you want if you were stranded on a desert island: Hair conditioner, the Harry Potter series, and sunglasses.  

What do you want to be when you grow up? Post-graduation, I would like to work in a hospital doing inpatient counseling before pursuing my doctoral degree in psychology (if that doesn't work out, then I'd like to be Beyoncé!)
