SENIOR SALUTES Honor Wilmington College’s Graduating Seniors

While senior Brooklyn Barger was busy in the biology labs and classes associated with her desire to pursue a Doctor of Physical Therapy degree at the University of Kentucky, she also found time to start a club.

Indeed, strikes and spares ended up being a valuable part of her Wilmington College experience. Brooklyn is a founding member of the WC Bowling Club. “Getting to experience how to successfully start a club is a favorite memory of my time at WC,” she said. “Also, here I opened up as a person and became more confident.”

Brooklyn, a biology major from Springfield, was involved with the STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Medicine) Society, which gave her the opportunity to see a proton accelerator. Also, she enjoyed her experience learning about other cultures as a participant in Model Arab League.

She encourages students to broaden their scope of interests by getting involved on campus. “Try many different things!” Brooklyn added. “WC offers a lot of activities through clubs and such.”

SENIOR SALUTES are the result of Wilmington College’s graduating seniors completing an online survey requesting them to look back on their time at WC and share favorite memories, especially meaningful events/relationships and how their time at the College has impacted them.
