Meet rising 3rd year Psychology Major and Spanish Minor, Ashley Daniel! Ashley said, “I have spent the summer working on a research project in a psychology lab at the UChicago hospital as well as working as an online tutor for kids improving English in Korea. At the beginning of this summer I leased a car and spent three days driving cross-country from San Diego to Chicago which was really fun!”
Elizabeth Jensen (Liz) is a rising third year, majoring in Biology (Pre-Med.) This summer Liz worked in a restaurant for a bit in her hometown in Utah to save up for a trip she is currently on, during which she is spending five weeks in the Canary Islands (part of Spain for those who don’t know). Liz said, “While I am here, I am observing various specialties in the local hospital as well as volunteering by teaching the doctors English. So far it’s been an amazing experience that I highly recommend to anyone interested in medicine.” Besides science and medicine, Liz has a wide range of hobbies. She said, “I like to horse-back ride, ski, and binge watch really bad TV shows. While at UChicago, I love to order Thai food with my roommate, a fellow Theta, especially in the winter. I also like to go out to the Point or to BBQs at friends’ apartments when it’s warm enough. Last but not least, I love to meet up with my Theta little or other sisters for coffee, particularly when I’ve been having a really stressful week and need a break from studying, which can be at UChicago.” (Liz is pictured in the middle along with Melissa (left) and Taylor (right) at 2014 IF Sing!)
Ioanna Aguilar is a rising third year, majoring in Economics and Public Policy. Ioanna said, “This summer I have been working at The Bank of New York Mellon in the Credit Management group. I help analyze clients to see whether they meet the requirements so that the bank can extend credit to them, which might not sound that fun, but I am actually really enjoying it. Living in NYC has been amazing! I am in love with this city. I never run out of things to do or places to visit, and there are so many Thetas here who have really made this summer incredible! I do miss Chicago though, and I am looking forward to going back there in a couple of weeks before I head to Paris for study abroad.”
