After attending St. Charles North High School in St. Charles, IL, Jenna chose Illinois Wesleyan after being recruited by a track and field coach. Illinois Wesleyan has an amazing women's track and field team and running is really important to her. Also, IWU is known for its prestigious Biology program and its high acceptance rate into medical school, which is the career path she wants to pursue. In the summer, Jenna works at Spirels Frozen Delights, a new frozen yogurt shop in St. Charles. She also works at the Shirk Center desk during the school year. On campus, Jenna is involved with the Varsity Track and Field Team, Badminton Club, Tri-Beta Honor Society, and the NSLS fraternity. She enjoys spending time with friends and family, running, watching movies, eating ice cream, reading fiction, walking her two dogs, or sleeping. Thinking back to her own Turning Titan Orientation, Jenna remembers Real World 101: a really funny but informative play addressing some of the issues students can encounter on a college campus. The acting was hilarious, and she thought it was a really creative way to address some very serious issues.
Jenna's advice for new students:
The only person who can truly bring you down is yourself.
