“My name is Ariana Clark. I am from Freeport, PA, but most of the time I tell people I’m a little bit outside of Pittsburgh, since they don’t know where Freeport is. I am a sophomore here at Allegheny College. I decided to live on campus this semester, and I’m participating in classes, both online and in person. I am a member of the women’s swim and dive team here. I swim all the strokes, but I am better at butterfly and backstroke. I have not yet declared what I will be majoring and minoring in, but I plan on majoring in environmental science and sustainability and minoring in economics. I would like to eventually study abroad, but I’m not quite sure where I want to go. There’s just too many places to choose from.
“I wanted to say thank you for giving me a chance to pursue my education here at Allegheny College. I picked this college because of its teacher to student ratio. I’m not just a number. I am a person that has a name and all the professors here get to know me. This College is giving me a chance to open up doors I never thought I would be able to. With Allegheny College’s help, I feel like I am getting the best education I can possibly get around here, especially in the environmental department. People like you are the reason why students like me feel like we have a chance to pursue our dreams and goals.”
