Pharmacy major Shreya Sebastian loves ONU because the University has helped her combine her many passions into one incredible college experience.
Shreya is involved in the Indian Student Association (ISA), College of Psychiatric and Neurologic Pharmacists (CPNP), Yoga Club, and mud volleyball – outlets that help her express her passions for her culture, her future career and her outside hobbies. Each organization fosters an important part of who she is.
ISA has provided a fun way for Shreya to reach out to campus to promote cultural events, like Diwali Dinner and Holi (the Festival of Colors), put on through ONU’s Multicultural Center. Joining ISA proved to be a unique experience that helped her meet fellow Indian students on campus and make many new friends.
Shreya has wanted to become a pharmacist since her junior year in high school, and ONU’s pharmacy program prepares her for a career in the best way possible – traditional classroom experiences coupled with real-life applications. Her involvement in the CPNP has also helped her further explore her desired career path and all of the opportunities that lie in the field of neurologic and psychiatric pharmacy.
She’s also passionate about keeping an active and healthy lifestyle. She looks forward to ONU’s annual Founders Hall Mud Volleyball tournament every fall semester, and participating in Yoga Club helps her stay centered physically and mentally.
“The key to staying involved on campus is to immerse yourself into clubs and organizations that you are most passionate about,” she says. “ONU offers a wide variety of clubs and organizations to be a part of, and it’s a great way to meet some of your closest friends whom you’ll have so many fun experiences with!”
