Blog: Strong Community Sets Holy Cross Apart, Says Breakell ’17

October 4th, 2013 by 


NAME Emily Breakell ’17

HOMETOWN Harwinton, Conn.

STUDIES SHE’S CONSIDERING Political science major

WHY SHE CHOSE HOLY CROSS “Holy Cross has strong academics and a great liberal arts curriculum, but I ultimately chose this school because of the diverse passions of the student body and unique co-curricular opportunities that I knew would make my college experience great.”

ACTIVITIES Tutoring at St. Agnes through Student Programs for Urban Development, Kimball work-study and possibly Mulledy House Council, Student Government Association internship, and a capella choir

WHAT SHE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “I am so excited to meet people and make connections with peers, professors, and mentors. I know that sharing experiences and learning from each other will make what I learn in the classroom even more valuable.”

WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “The Holy Cross blogs are an excellent way for prospective students to get an honest look at life here on The Hill. My experiences, while unique, will hopefully provide insight to kids who are making a super difficult decision about their future.”
