For my Senior Piece, I interviewed Jennifer Lopez Gomez, a first-generation student majoring in mathematics with a minor in Spanish. She has been involved on campus, being the former treasurer for the Latino American Student Organization and a Finance Committee member for the Student Government Association.

Q: What would you say was your best year and least best year and why?

A: I think my best would be my senior year because I know everything now in West Chester. I learned from my mistakes with studying and started reaching out to my professors. I learned better studying skills for myself. What I would say was my worst year was during my freshman year. As a first-generation student, I didn’t know specifically who to talk to about anything and wasn’t aware of all of the resources offered on campus. I was also a commuter, so I didn’t interact as much with my peers on campus.

Q: What was your biggest gain from being involved on campus?

A: I learned a lot from being an executive board member that there are many WCU students with many different backgrounds and how they got to WCU.

Q: What advice would you give to the incoming freshmen coming in (Class of 2028)?

A: I would tell them to definitely get involved with other clubs/organizations on campus and network with people. Also, utilize the resources on campus when it comes to academics. Use the LARC Center and talk with your professors because they are here to help you. Also, try to connect with other students in the classroom and make study groups.
