Giovanna, where are you from?

I am from Queens and I attended Hillcrest High School in Jamaica, Queens.

 
How did you hear about The College of New Rochelle?

I met an admissions counselor at a college fair at the Javits Center.

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

I also considered Mount St. Vincent, Adelphi and St. Joseph's College.  I chose to attend CNR because I loved how welcoming and helpful everyone from the students to the faculty and staff were when I visited during an Open House.  


What is your major?

I am a Business major, with a career track in Finance and a minor in Psychology.

 
Tell us about some of your favorite professors and why you like them.

Because the College is so small I have developed strong relationships with many of my professors. Two of my favorite professors are Professor Linda Lopresti and Professor Chris Lovergine, who are both full time professors in the Business department.  Although they are polar opposites in their teaching styles, they are both extremely dedicated to their students and are always willing to provide help to anyone who asks for it.

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

I have been a Resident Assistant for the last three years. I also work in the Office of Student Development. I help to organize campus-wide programs and events.

 
Do you go into New York City often?

Yes, I do. That is one aspect of the College that I love. It is very convenient to New York City. I’m usually in Manhattan four times a week, going to shows, museums, shopping or just to meet my friends and hang out in the Big Apple.

 
Do you have a job off campus?

Yes, I am currently interning at an accounting firm in the city. I also work on campus in the Office of Student Development.


Tell us about your recent experience overseas?

Oh, that was wonderful. I studied abroad last semester in Italy. It was the most amazing experience that I have ever had. Living abroad for almost four months was such an eye opening experience for me. I learned so much about the cultural differences of people from all around the world as well as learning the Italian language. Living in a foreign country and being completely immersed in another culture really changed my view of the world and aided me in developing into the woman that I want to be.


How did the opportunity to study abroad come about for you?

I always wanted to study abroad but got discouraged when I inquired about the cost.  I was then informed by Dr. Andre Beauzither who coordinates the Study Abroad program about the Taylor Foundation's scholarship for CNR students wanting to study overseas. This scholarship made it possible for my dream to become a reality.


When do you graduate, Giovanna?

I will be graduating next year, in May of 2008.


What are your career plans?

I plan on getting a masters degree in accounting and eventually becoming a Certified Public Accountant. I am also thinking of getting a TEFL certificate so that I can teach English in Japan after I graduate.
