Name: Mia Bennett
Year: Class of 2011

Major: Communications with Business and Classics Minors
Activities: Honors Program, The Sweet Carrollines (President), The Labre Project, Intramurals, Relay For Life, Streak Week SWAT Leader, Grasselli Library (work study)

"When I first came to John Carroll, I knew almost no one and hesitated about whether or not to become involved on campus. However, the more I became involved in student activities, the more people I met, the more friendships I made, and the more I loved my time here at school. Student involvement enriches my John Carroll experience by providing me with friendship, leadership opportunities, and awesome experiences. These experiences not only benefit me presently, but I know they will also have a great impact on my future. Without on-campus involvement, I may have left college not knowing the leadership opportunities that I would have or the friends that I would make."

Major: Finance

"Being involved at John Carroll has helped me to meet a lot of people that I never would have otherwise. Also, it has helped to strengthen my choice to pursue a major in finance. Each activity and organization brings something different to the table for me and is a great opportunity to grow as an individual and as part of the community at John Carroll. Through the Arrupe Scholars Program, I am able to do service work and learn about social justice; through the finance association, I can learn about my major and potential careers; and in SIFE, I am able to learn more about free enterprise and what it takes to start a business."

"John Carroll University's mission calls for its students to be 'men and women for others,' and it is this statement which compels me to be involved in campus activities that promote justice for the oppressed and help make a difference. My involvement has helped me find what I believe in, and what I am willing to stand up for. The opportunities offered at John Carroll constantly change me to be a better person who can use their academic knowledge and apply it to real world circumstances. I believe that being involved at John Carroll is an honor and a duty which allows me to see the practicality of being a 'man for others.' Through my involvement at John Carroll, I have met many people who are interested in the same areas as I am and this has led to some very great friendships. My experience at JCU would not be as fulfilling if I was not as involved as I am."

"Becoming involved at John Carroll has made my experience here. There is no better way to get to know the Carroll community than to become active within it. The JCU campus is my home away from home, and it has offered me a variety of ways to learn more about others as well as myself. I have become much more comfortable in roles of leadership, and I am always ready and willing to become engaged. Most importantly, I have made some of my most valued friends through the activities I have become involved in at JCU."
