Welcome incoming students! My name is Krysta and I am going to be one of the student orientation counselors for this upcoming summer! I am going to be a senior and my major is Sport and Leisure Management with a double minor in Communication and Business Administration. Ever since coming to Eastern I have felt like I have been at my home away from home. Eastern has one of the best small campus feelings to it, which makes all of the students feel like they are at home. The small classrooms are also an added bonus of being a student here at Eastern. Every professor gets to know you by name and is willing to help you with any questions that you might have.
I started getting involved at Eastern after my first semester. I became a part of the Health and Physical Education and Sport and Leisure Management major club. I also became secretary of my Resident Hall Association and severed on that board my freshman year. My professors stressed that taking advantage of opportunities that arise is what is going to make your time here at Eastern worthwhile and I took their advice very seriously. I volunteered at different events that related to my major and shadowed professionals as well. I also became involved with the LEAP into Leadership series as a sophomore and I am still an active member in this program. Eastern has many opportunities to become involved and develop as a leader.
I look forward to meeting you during SOAR! The SOCs look forward to meeting you and guiding you throughout your orientation experience to ensure you are ready to become and Eastern Warrior in the fall! In the meantime, don't forget to follow us on twitter @EasternSOAR and become a fan of EasternOrientation on Facebook. See you soon!
