I love being part of an environment that fosters learning and creativity. I graduated from Binghamton University’s Harpur College of Arts and Sciences (our liberal arts school) with a degree in English with a concentration in creative writing. After earning my bachelor’s, I decided to come back for my graduate studies. I was able to do a lot of hands-on work while attending the Graduate School of Education. I learned so much from the time I spent in the classroom with amazing professors and talented classmates. Outside of the classroom, I spent many hours reading books and articles and writing stories and papers in the University libraries, which are full of great resources for students.

I’ve always loved to read and write and Binghamton University was a great fit for me; now, I am pleased to be able to help you find out if Binghamton is the right fit for you! Check out our many course offerings and explore the opportunities for creativity and learning. If you have any questions, you can send me an e-mail — you know I’ll write back! And if you find that Binghamton University seems like a fit for you … apply! I look forward to reading your essay.
