Anjali is a fourth year student at Juniata College studying biology on the pre-dental track and entrepreneurship. When she first visited Juniata, she felt a strong sense of positivity and enthusiasm for learning among the students. After having a conversation about careers with her soon- to-be adviser, she knew that Juniata College had the resources and support system she needed to achieve her personal and professional goals.
While at Juniata, Anjali has worked towards building up her communication, leadership, and mentoring abilities. She began working as a tour guide, showing prospective students and their families the extensive variety of opportunities and experiences that Juniata has to offer. While exploring several of these opportunities herself, Anjali decided to begin Juniata College’s South Asian Student Association, which gives students the chance to learn more about South Asian culture, and provides a second home for South Asian students. In addition, by using her passion for the sciences and helping others, she also became an Organic Chemistry tutor.
After realizing that she wanted to have a deeper connection with students, Anjali became a Resident Assistant, taking on the role of a community builder and confidant for students ranging from first through fourth year. She has taken her leadership skills to a higher level, and currently serves as a Community Advisor. Through this position, Anjali mentors Resident Assistants and works closely with the Office of Residential Life to ensure a fulfilling college experience for all Juniata students.
