'I See the World Differently': Alexa Rivera '22
Alexa Rivera '22
For Alexa Rivera '22, financial support from donors has allowed her to experience everything UC has to offer.
"When applying to colleges, the scholarships and financial aid I received from Utica College made it the most affordable choice for me. After meeting with faculty members during my first visit to campus, I instantly knew that UC would instill me with the resources to meet my career goals.
Now in my senior year, I see the world differently because of the new and positive experiences I’ve had at UC. I am involved with several campus organizations, including the CSTEP Program, National Honor Society, Fuerza Latina, Africa in Motion, and I am currently a resident assistant. Being a member of these organizations has placed an outstanding influence in improving my communication skills, professional skills, and has encouraged self-discovery within myself as both a student and as an individual. These organizations have also introduced me to the importance of networking and how it can positively impact anything I aspire to do or become. It is because of the financial support I’ve received that I have been able to experience everything UC has to offer.
Utica College does not treat their students as numbers, but values their students as individuals, which makes a student’s experience throughout their time at UC so memorable.
I want to give back to the communities that once served me.
My goal is to become a law enforcement officer and work with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. I want to give back to the communities that once served me. Thanks to the support I’ve received at UC, I know I am on my way.”
