Name: Courtney Gareau
School: Providence College
For Courtney Gareau, expressing her voice came in the form of expressing her faith. “I chose Providence College because I wanted to grow in my faith. I was given a chance to do this from day one through FaithWorks, a program for incoming freshmen,” says Courtney. “Now I spend a lot of time in Campus Ministry, talking with friends and Dominican priests.” For Courtney, the community at PC made stepping out of her comfort zone pretty comfortable. “Everyone at PC is so welcoming, it makes it easy for you to explore what you might not normally be comfortable doing – to try new clubs and get involved,” says Courtney.
