Hello! Welcome to my eFolio page. My name is Daniel Wawrzusin and am currently a senior at Holy Cross College majoring in communication. I am from Potomac, MD which is right outside Washington D.C. I started my education at Holy Cross during my sophomore year in the Fall of 2010. I transferred to Holy Cross after my freshman year at McDaniel College in Westminster, MD.
Holy Cross has been a great chance for me to grow as a person spiritually, mentally, and physically. Holy Cross College and their learning outcomes as well as core competencies has helped prepare me for whatever professional career which awaits me following college.
I am very fortunate to have been given the chance to get to experience hands on learning. Experiential learning through a service learning class, internship experience, a global experience, and a final Capstone presentation.
The 4 Pillars Holy Cross College offers best describe the experiential learning we are able to take part of here at the school. These 4 Pillars at Holy Cross include our Service Learning Track, Global Perspective experience, internship, and finally the Capstone presentation. All of these are further explained throughout my eFolio page.
A philosophy I like to live my life by is, "It's all good." No matter how bad something is, there is always some good that you can find I believe. Having a positive attitude is so important in anything you do. This philosophy I believe makes it easier to make new friends and meet new people, something I do everyday.
The theme behind my experience here at Holy Cross relates to a quote from The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. It reads, "It's a dangerous business, going out your door…if you don't keep your feet, there is no knowing where you might be swept off to." This quote reflects my experience coming out here to go to school out in South Bend, IN all the way from Maryland. Traveling into the unknown and not knowing what to expect has been a recurring theme here at my time at Holy Cross.
My Senior Capstone date is set for Monday April 29th, 2013 at 2:30 pm in the Pfiel Center building on campus.
