Leadership: Growing up with six siblings—five of whom were brothers—Nicole felt like her voice wasn’t always heard around the family dinner table. Any residual shyness has been obliterated at Cedar Crest.
"This college has really helped to build my leadership skills. Going to a college where people actually listen to you when you talk, it lets you know that your opinion matters. My communications professors have helped me to find my voice as a student. Had I not come to a small college, I don’t know that I’d be the leader that I am today."
Favorite Quote: "You can do anything you set your mind to."
"For as long as I can remember my father has always told me that I can do anything I set my mind to and I’ve always believed him. Whenever I face a large challenge or I come close to accomplishing a new goal I always make up my mind that I can do it because I know that once my mind is made up everything else will follow suit."
“Nicole 360”: Nicole is a communication major who aspires to one day write for The New York Times, and a talented performer with a dance minor who has performed in many College performing arts productions. A science adviser played a key role in Nicole’s decision to switch from science to communication as a freshman—and she hasn’t looked back.
"Even though I was changing out a field she was so passionate about she was very supportive of me pursuing things that I had a passion for. At this college, they really push you to do whatever you feel is right for you to do. This is just one thing that made me feel like I belong at this campus, and that I am important."
