Fairfield Spotlight - Renise Williams '12
Name: Renise Williams
Hometown: Bronx, NY
Major: Psychology and English
I chose Fairfield because... when I stepped onto the campus I felt immediately welcome.
I chose my major because... I wanted to gain insight into the behaviors and motivations of individuals and I love to read and write.
My favorite thing to do on campus is... hang out in the campus center. I can do work there, plus I can see all my friends.
What's your most memorable academic experience? My most memorable academic experience was my Cognitive Psychology class because I was able to apply what I learned to my everyday life.
Outside of the classroom, my favorite thing at Fairfield that really enhances my experience here is... being an RA. It has been a rewarding experience. I learned about myself and the residents.
When I have free time, I like to... hangout in the campus center and catch up with people.
One thing I wish I knew about actual college life before I got here is... how critical it is to manage your time.
One positive thing I have learned about myself since coming to Fairfield is... I am a strong leader and I enjoy mentoring my fellow peers.
After graduation, I plan to... go to graduate school for higher education, educational psychology, or human resources and management.
The one Fairfield experience I will always remember will be... going on the Kairos Retreat because it changed my perspective on my life and what I want out of my life.
