How has an ETS major helped you succeed?
"When I committed to an ETS dual major, I couldn't imagine the skills, insight, and personal growth I would gain in just three years. Being an ETS major has taught how to think critically about problems and to approach scenarios with an open mind — to understand that there is always something else to learn and another story to hear/tell. The major taught me how to clearly and thoughtfully articulate an argument or problem and how to present an argument in an impactful, audience-specific way. I have been able to develop and hone my writing skills and was given a place to express my thoughts, ideas, and concerns."

A Jersey girl at heart, Noelle has made Central New York her home away from home. She enjoys hiking, going on road trips, and being outdoors.
