Welcome to my Admissions Blog!
Hey! My name is Tom, a second-year Political Science and Business major from Wenonah, NJ (South Jersey, the better one). Stick around to see what I’m up to, in Boston and Beyond.
More About Me…
Welcome! I’m happy you’re here : ) On this blog, I’ll talk about my experiences:
- As a Husky Ambassador (duh), and working in the Visitor Center (VC)
- As a Service-Learning Teaching Assistant and member of the NU|ACES program
- As a displaced camp counselor
- As an Honors Program Ambassador, and an Ambassador for the College of Social Sciences and Humanities
- On (the) co-op (search)
- Living in Boston
- Just as a college student
