Where are you from, Danielle?

I grew up in Stanfordville, New York. A very rural town halfway between Poughkeepsie and Albany.


How did you hear about The College of New Rochelle?

I first encountered CNR at a college fair at a nearby high school.


What other colleges did you consider and why did you pick CNR?

The other colleges I considered were Vassar and Stony Brook.  I picked CNR because I loved the atmosphere, the size of the classes (since I came from a VERY small high school) and the financial help they offered.


What do you think is special about the College?

I think one of the greatest things about CNR is the community. The professors are always willing to help and they know who you are. Unlike at other colleges where you are just a number. I also think one of our best resources at CNR is our Study Abroad program. I have studied abroad in Tours, France for the last two summers. If I wasn't a student here I wouldn't have had those experiences that have truly changed my life.


What is your major?

My majors are French and English.


Tell us about some of your favorite professors.

My favorite professors happen to be my two advisors, Dr. Andre Beauzethier and Dr. Nick Smart, because they are so helpful and want only the best for their students.  They don't only teach, but they also invest time into getting to know their students and preparing them for what may come after undergrad. 


What clubs or organizations are you involved with as a student?

Since my Freshman year I have been a member of CNR Drama, CNR's oldest club. I have done everything from being President (last year) to acting, to set and light design. I think it is one of the best things that is offered at CNR!


Do you have a chance to go into New York City?

I do go into the city all the time! It's so close I'm not sure how you couldn't. I like to go down for dinner, or a show, or even just a nice relaxing day in Central Park.


Did you have a job while you were a student?

I've had many jobs while being a student. However, this semester I am working strictly on campus at both the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs’ Office and with Learning Support Services. I am tutoring three subjects.


What do you plan to do when you graduate?

I plan on going to graduate school. I hope to attend New York University and earn a masters in Journalism with a concentration in French Studies. I eventually want to work in the travel industry. You know, go out and see the world!
