This week we are doing an “Honors Senior Spotlight” on Jenna Supinski!
Jenna Supinski majors in Speech-Language Pathology and has a minor in Neuroscience and is originally from Schwenksville, Pennsylvania! Read below to find out more about Jenna!
What are your plans for after graduating?
JS: I will be attending graduate school to receive my Master’s Degree in Speech-Language Pathology.
What is your favorite Honors-related memory?
JS: The New York trip during my freshman year would have to be my favorite Honors memory. We drove down to NYC for the day to visit the Museum of Modern Art and see the musical Fun Home. It was a great way to meet people in the Honors department and spend time with those who I already knew.
What are you involved in on campus? How has your campus involvement shaped your overall IC experience?
JS: From my freshman year until my junior year I was involved in the club IC Circle K. I spent 4 semesters serving as the treasurer of the service club. We often engaged in volunteer work both on campus and in the surrounding Ithaca community. Being a part of the organization was a great way to get to know the town of Ithaca and the other students in the club. I am also very involved in research on campus. I am one of three student researchers in the Collaborative Language Research Lab in the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Department. In the lab, we have been creating a database of effective words to be used in speech intervention. My experience in the lab has provided me with the opportunity to present research at the local and national level. Overall, my campus involvement has given me opportunities to collaborate with passionate individuals who have impacted my life for the better.
What advice do you have for future Honors students?
JS: My advice for future Honors students would be to live in the present and enjoy your four years. It can be really easy to get caught up in all of the work you have to do, but make sure you give yourself some time to relax or hang out with your friends. All of the work will eventually get done, so don’t stress out too much! You’re only here for four years and, coming from a senior, those four years fly by. So take up that offer to grab coffee with a friend, go on that hike around Buttermilk, and enjoy everything college has to offer.
