On investing in students

On collaborating with students

On a Jesuit education

“As a result of our smaller class sizes, we really get to know our students as individuals. We’re able to take the time, in the classroom and through mentoring, to help them find their way and develop their unique interests and abilities. We become deeply invested in their success.”

“In other places, faculty might take the attitude that the research they’re doing is the all-important thing, and their students are lucky to sit at their feet and assist them. Here, faculty have their research programs, but we also help students to discover what their interests and passions might be. We help students develop their own research and guide them along the way.”

“Since the beginning, Jesuit education has balanced an education in the humanities with a practical orientation to turn out educated people who could make positive, meaningful contributions in the world. The University of Scranton is a broad and deep education, a whole education, that lives up to that ideal.”

THE GENESIS OF A RESEARCH SCIENTIST

Matthew Reynolds Class: 2018 Majors: Biology and Biophysics Hometown: Apalachin, New York

After he graduates from Scranton, Matthew plans to pursue a career as a research scientist. In both his majors, biology and biophysics, he’s combining rigorous learning in the classroom with a wide range of high-level research experiences. Matthew is also the recipient of a prestigious Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship.

On individualized attention “Because our classes are small, professors can give individual attention to students and challenge them at the appropriate level. The friendly relationships with professors, and with students, have allowed me to thrive.”

On pursuing research “I began doing research in the spring of my freshman year. That experience led to a competitive summer internship with the Wadsworth Center, a part of the New York State Department of Health. There, I researched flagella and algae. I also researched yeast in collaboration with the research group at the South China University of Technology. We were able to have our research published in a peerreviewed scientific journal.”

On further research experience “On my return to Scranton, I was able to continue my summer research project, collaborating with my mentor at the Wadsworth Center and Dr. Gomez at The University of Scranton. We sent research samples to the group in China and communicated with them over Skype. This work led to two additional research internships at the Wadsworth Center.”

On Leahy Hall “Leahy is one of my absolute favorite buildings on campus. I love how you can walk into some of the rooms and not even realize that you’re in a classroom.

On service learning “A really cool thing about Panuska College is that we participate in service learning each semester. It’s an opportunity for students to step outside of their comfort zone and serve in a way that they might not otherwise do.

On Research

On SJLA Honors

Students have an incredible number of research opportunities with professors working on novel projects. My research experience has enabled me to translate what I’ve learned in the classroom and bring it to life in the laboratory.

Not a day goes by that I do not think about what I have learned through SJLA. Consistent improvement in my written and oral skills has provided me with a sense of confidence and competency that I will take with me for the rest of my life.

A LARGER PERSPECTIVE Philippines

Maggie Parks engaged in two very different global experiences while at Scranton. Her first trip was an international service experience in Blanchard, Haiti, outside the city of Port-auPrince. The following year, she studied abroad in Florence, Italy. Maggie is currently an Assistant Negotiator at Zenith Media, a worldwide media agency in New York City.

On serving abroad “In the summer before my junior year, I traveled to Haiti as part of Scranton’s International Service Program (ISP). I was with 12 other students and two adult supervisors. We spent 10 days in Haiti, building houses and reaching out to a special-needs orphanage. It was an eye-opening experience to be immersed in the culture of a developing nation.”

On studying abroad

Jordan

Dominican Republic

“In the spring of my junior year, I studied abroad in Florence, Italy. While there, I traveled to 12 different countries. Being exposed to so many different cultures throughout Europe— for example, seeing how they do things in the Czech Republic versus Italy or Spain— made me more aware of the world.”

On lessons learned “Traveling abroad opens your eyes to a larger world. Challenged and stretched in so many ways, I came back with a greater understanding of not just the world, but myself. Traveling abroad, you become more aware, more independent and more confident. My college experience was so fulfilling because of these experiences.”

MAKE CHANGE THROUGH ACTION

ENGAGEMENT WITH A PASSION Christopher Kilner knows well the benefits of involvement and leadership. As a triple major, recipient of the Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship, Student Government president and an active participant in research, Christopher made the most of the immense opportunities that await all students on Scranton’s campus.

On getting involved “The University really encourages active participation, not just in clubs, not just in sports, but in every dynamic opportunity

On lessons learned

on campus. The possibilities for getting involved are many — and they are immediately available, even as first-year students.”

“I’ve realized what I’m capable of through taking on these leadership opportunities. Secondly, I’ve learned a lot more about the importance of interpersonal relationships and working well with others. The biggest impact that I can make isn’t necessarily what I get done within these roles, but the example that I can set for others to pick up the mantle and add more than I ever could.”

On finding passion “Scranton really helps students to find their passion, and it’s why nearly everyone on this campus is involved in at least one or two things. My advice to prospective students: find what you’re passionate about, because getting involved and taking on leadership positions will come naturally once you find that passion.”

ADVENTURE BEYOND THE CITY

THE SCRANTON LIFE For Yasirie Ramos, the city of Scranton proved to be an ideal college setting. Yasirie took advantage of valuable internship opportunities, as well as the many entertainment and recreational options of downtown Scranton and the surrounding area.

On access to internships “With New York City and Philadelphia just a couple of hours away, I was able to get an internship in Manhattan with a multinational company that fit my major, international business. It was a great experience, and it has now turned into a full-time job after graduation!”

Make good friends and have a great time exploring the city

On favorite local hangouts “One of my favorite places in Scranton is Nay Aug Park, where you can run and bike the trails, and it even has a beautiful waterfall. The downtown coffee shops, Adezzo and Northern Light, are awesome. And my favorite eateries are: JJ McNally’s (Saturday morning Huevos Rancheros!), City Market Cafe (good food for on-the-go) and Osaka (Japanese hibachi, the place for birthdays!).”

On local traditions “There’s a lot going on in Scranton. Every fall, there’s the big Italian festival, La Festa, where we eat all day —for three days! In the spring, Made in Scranton features local artists, musicians and food. On First Fridays, galleries stay open late, and there’s music, culture — and food! It’s always something!”
