Meghan, where did you go to high school?

I went to New Rochelle High School for my freshman year and then I was home schooled.      

Why did you decide to attend The College of New Rochelle?

There were many reasons. I wanted a college that had a good reputation. I have heard from various teachers throughout the years that they were doing their masters at The College of New Rochelle and that they loved it. My sister also graduated from the College and she had a wonderful experience. Another reason I selected CNR was because I wanted to be close to home. I live only five minutes from campus. I also wanted a place that would continue to assist me in growing into a strong-minded and well rounded individual.

Being an all women’s college, CNR gives me a perspective that I wouldn’t find in many colleges or universities. While visiting campus, I found that I loved the atmosphere of the school. The faculty and staff were friendly, the buildings were beautiful, and there are so many things to do in New Rochelle.

What class is your favorite?

My favorite class thus far has been Communication Arts taught by Dr. Roxanne Zimmer. It was a class that took us from the beginnings of communication to where we are today. It was one of those classes where you don’t want the hour to be over.

Of all the CNR professors you've had, who are your favorites?

Some of my favorite professors have been Dr. Zimmer and Dr. Anne Ferrari. These teachers really cared about us as students and pushed us to do our absolute best.  

How have you been involved at CNR outside of your studies?

In my first year I decided that I would not dive into anything without first getting used to the new experience. Now that I feel comfortable, I plan to get involved with Campus Ministry and with helping the community. 

Do you know where you are headed after graduation?

I would like to get my master’s in either education or psychology or go to law school.
