With all the exams and projects that comprise college life, it’s easy for students to lose sight of what they’re working toward. Some, however, have a clear picture in mind. In five years, they see themselves…

Jared Schaaf, freshman history/pre-law major:
…continuing my education here at Gannon. I will be working hard to pay for my education and finding ways to improve our judicial, political and educational systems.
  Eli Coppock, senior history major/political science minor:
…working with an advocacy organization most likely in Washington, D.C. or New York after having done a two-year stint with AmeriCorps. The organization would probably be geared toward either education or LGBT rights.
  Katelyn Przybyszewski, sophomore physician assistant major:
…with a job as a physician assistant working in an office setting. My hope is to move out of Erie just because I’ve never lived anywhere else. I can see myself living in Virginia because I have family near D.C., and I prefer a warmer climate. It’s hard to predict, but all I can do is work hard and hopefully success and happiness will follow.
  Leo DeCapua, senior chemistry/pre-med major:
…waking up and walking outside into the beautiful Sacramento, Calif. weather, then getting in my Honda or Toyota and driving to the hospital to go to my job as a physician assistant. I will have a well-stocked, in-home chemistry lab where I can work on chemical research in my spare time.
  Allison Blanco, freshman nursing major:
…working in a neonatal intensive care unit in a big hospital. I want to help save the lives of babies that arrive prematurely or have some other kind of problem. I can’t see myself doing anything else!
