Long runs are relaxing for Georgian Court University Track & Field Captain Rachel Pausz ’22, but she’s all business in competition. “There’s a strategy about long-distance races and how you tackle them,” said Rachel, a Point Pleasant, New Jersey, resident. “They build mental toughness.” Rachel’s professional strategy is to become a Certified Public Accountant, another rigorous challenge.
The very best mistake Christine Clark ever made led her to a career she loves. She was a high school senior completing Georgian Court University admissions paperwork. “I wanted to be an education major and also study social work. I couldn’t find social work on the form, but I saw psychology, so I checked that box,” explains Christine. While intending to make the change later, she never did and ended up taking an Introduction to Psychology class. “From that moment, I fell in love with psychology.”
Soccer goalkeepers are agile, speedy and organized. Gianluca Cersosimo has these qualities as both a high-achieving finance major and as a goalkeeper for the Georgian Court University men’s soccer team.
Yasmin Amaro-Garcia knows exactly when she first became passionate about nursing. It was the Christmas she received a kid-friendly medical kit. “I practiced on my younger sisters and cousins,” she said. “As the oldest, I was always taking care of someone.”
Gabriel Rodriguez took the “buffet approach” to choosing a major at Georgian Court University: undecided, chemistry, math—and finally, history. “I did well in all my high school classes, so it was a matter of trying some things and figuring out what fit,” he said. “I enjoy history—studying the past and learning about the experiences of others.”
Ebizie Anuamadi, co-captain of the Georgian Court University track & field team and school record-setter in three mid-distance events, has broken the tape at many finish lines. On May 18, the social work major will cross one more—and cheering from the audience will be his parents, Chinyere and Obianyo Anuamadi, for whom he says he owes it all.
