Rebecca Mitchko, ’15, took the traditional route to the College of Saint Elizabeth (CSE) campus – starting by meeting a CSE admissions representative at her high school -- Hunterdon Central Regional High School two years ago. “As it turns out, we talked for more than an hour about what CSE has to offer…I fell in love with the possibilities.”
Now completing her sophomore year as a dual philosophy/English major, she is thrilled with her choice of CSE. “It has worked out great…I’m staying here for the professors,” she said. “They know me as a person as well as a student…they encourage me…It’s so much fun.” She especially likes the attention to her writing, something she would like to turn into a career down the road – either as a published author, college professor, or both.
Mitchko’s campus experience extends beyond the classroom. She is vice president of her class, vice president of the philosophy club, a peer advisor for the freshman class, a writer/editor for the school newspaper, The Station, an editor for the literary magazine, The Sector, and a student aide in the Holocaust Center.
“You have to stay involved in campus activities…its’ a community. It you don’t you’re missing out.” said Mitchko. “CSE will be your family… your home away from home.”
