Amida

Amida

Student Ambassador
Nursing, B.S.
Harlem, NY

Bio

Why Canton?: I chose SUNY Canton for so many reasons and one was because I wanted to be far away from home and gain that college experience of being away from your parents. Most importantly, I wanted to attend a small college where I can get to know the students on a personal level outside of class. I also wanted a college that was very big on hands-on and the most important thing that stood out to me about the nursing program was the students getting a chance to work with real patients in a hospital setting after they have worked with mannequins in the lab.

Campus Involvement: Resident Assistant, Tour Guide, Member of College Activities Board, Senator of African Student Union, Secretary of Diversified Ladies Club, Vice President of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, CSTEP

Future Plans: After graduating from SUNY Canton’s nursing program, I plan on taking my NCLEX. Once I pass the test and get my license, I will start working in an accredited hospital and then go back to school to work on my BSN/MSN degree.

Words of Advice: "The beauty about falling sometimes is being able to rise back up and start all over making sure you never fall again. Just know that when you truly want success, you will never give up on it."

Bio

Why Canton?: I never had the opportunity to visit Canton while I was in high school. It just looked like a great campus and I’ve heard so many great things about it.

Nevada

Nevada

Student Ambassador
Funeral Services Administration, B. Tech
Bliss, NY

Bio

Why Canton?: I chose Canton not just because it was the only four year school for my major in New York, but because of the area. I grew up in a small, rural town and definitely didn’t want the distraction, or expense, of living in a big city.

Campus Involvement: I work at the Criminal Justice office suite. I am the president of SUNY Canton’s Spectrum (Gay-Straight Alliance). I am also an active member of the Pool Enthusiast club, Habitat for Humanity, Student Ambassadors, Alpha Phi Omega Petition Group, and soon to be the Mortuary Science Club.

Future Plans: As far as my education and professional life go, I hope to own a funeral home and be a major asset to the community I end up in. Mostly, I want a family in my future. I grew up in a big family and plan on having one of my own once I’m out of college.

Words of Advice: "The best advice I could think of for a freshman is Be Social. Don’t walk around with your headphones on or your eyes glued to a phone; try to make eye contact and smile at people. Try leaving your door open most of the time that you’re home or do homework in the lounge. I was shy when I first started here, (which you wouldn’t believe if you met me now), but an upperclassman gave me this advice the third day of my first semester and now I have a very broad group of friends. Friends are one of your biggest assets in college; just make sure you stick with the right ones."
