Most unique Brockport experience:I have volunteered several times at Sister’s of St. Joseph’s in Rochester, which is a retirement facility for nuns and priests. When we have visited with my LLC, we have assisted with various tasks that they need help with such as landscaping, housekeeping, and decorating for the holidays. We have sung Christmas carols to them and cleaned their wheelchairs. These trips have been the most rewarding experiences to me because all of the residents are so pleasant to be around and overly thankful for help with the simplest of tasks.

One class that every student should take before graduating from Brockport: Sculpture! I took it sophomore year because I wanted one class in my schedule that was relaxing and enjoyable. I’m not the most artsy person, but at the end of the semester I had completed four pieces of work that I never thought I was capable of creating.
