When deciding to transfer from his community college, Eduardo found that the friendly, calm, and inviting atmosphere he experienced at a GMercyU open house sealed the deal. "The environment was unlike other campuses I had previously visited," he said.
Eduardo’s transfer process went smoothly with the help of his GMercyU admissions counselor, who kept him up to date with the latest information and answered any questions he had. Moving to GMercyU from the Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) in the city felt very different to Eduardo. "[GMercyU's] campus is surrounded by trees and gives you a sense of tranquility," he said.
Having taken a few Psychology courses at CCP, Eduardo found the subject intriguing. He describes Psychology as an underrated major and was always curious to know the topic of his next class. Because of this, Eduardo decided to major in Psychology at GMercyU.
Eduardo emphasizes that all of his professors at GMercyU are there to help their students succeed.
In spring 2022, Eduardo has an internship lined up at Caring Hospice Services. After graduation, Eduardo plans to analyze the market for jobs in the field of psychology and depending on the results, he may pursue his master’s degree.
Experience as a Student-Athlete
Eduardo describes becoming a member of the GMercyU men’s soccer team as “the second-best choice I made.” (The first choice would be choosing GMercyU.)
Despite the season not heading in the direction the team wanted, Eduardo says he will cherish the experience, the lessons, and the people forever. “The program has helped me mature as a student, athlete, and, most importantly, a person,” said Eduardo.
