Brazil 2012

My name is Emily Kovach and I am twenty-three years old. I was born on September 2nd, 1989 in South Bend. I currently reside in New Carlisle and have been there for the past fourteen years. Some of my hobbies include cheerleading, photography, traveling, and reading.  I am currently a senior at Holy Cross College, and I will be graduating in December of 2012. My major is Business with a Sociology minor.

Coming from a small high school, I wanted to find that same kind of atmosphere for my college experience. I found Holy Cross College to have exactly what I was looking for. The college has a small student to teacher ratio, small class sizes, and a wide variety of sports programs and clubs. Holy Cross offers a unique experience for everyone. Each student is to complete four pillars which include: Service Learning, a Professional Internship, an International Experience, and a Senior Capstone Presentation. These pillars help to push the boundaries of our education by taking us out of the classroom, and into the real world. To learn more about Holy Cross College, please visit the Campus Resources section of my eFolio.

The theme of my e-folio was inspired by these words of Aristotle,"All human actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion, desire". I came across this quote and I felt as though it was the perfect theme for not only my e-folio, but also for my Capstone presentation. I have used each of the key words from the quote to build a structured layout of my before, during, and after Holy Cross College experiences. I invite you to come to my Capstone presentation, which will be given on December 5th at 2:30pm, to see how I have used this theme throughout my presentation.

At the top of this page you will find links that will help you to learn more about me, my education at Holy Cross College, and my life experiences. I encourage you to browse through the links to see how Holy Cross has shaped me as an individual.
