Teresa, a 2019 graduate of Colts Neck High School, will attend Alvernia University. She says that her campus visit is what helped her decide to enroll. "I made this decision because once I visited the school I completely fell in love with everything about it. I felt at home on the campus, and my major was offered. I also had the opportunity to play basketball there."

At Alvernia, Teresa will major in communications with future plans of working in human resources. She said she " would love to share my ideas and work collaboratively with my coworkers."

We asked Teresa:

What was your favorite class in high school?
My favorite class in high school was during senior year. The class was called Advanced Algebra and Trigonometry. Normally, I am not the type of person to favor math. (At all). But this teacher was the most helpful and caring teacher I have ever met. It made me look forward to go to a math in class, which I never thought I would say. 

What one tip would you share with soon to be high school seniors who are approaching the application process this fall?
One tip I would share with soon to be seniors is to enjoy every second because just like everyone says, it does go by fast. Make sure to keep a healthy balance with school, friends, athletics, and family. 

What is one tip you would share with students and parents as they visit college campuses?
One tip I would share to students visiting campuses is to keep an open mind. You may come into the process thinking you want one thing, but a lot of the time you will change your opinion. This specifically goes for major. 

What is one fun fact about you?
One fun fact about me is that I enjoy playing the ukulele!
