Hi! My name is Noelle Serino.
Originally from Upstate New York, I’m a 17 year old freshman at The American University in Washington, D.C., studying with a major in Justice and Law and a minor in Public Anthropology. I hope to potentially move onto law school or work towards pursuing a career in the field of criminal justice or public anthropology.
When I’m not stressing out over the latest homework assignment, I’m looking at pictures of cute dogs or eating some form of Italian food. If I’m not doing either of those, I’m most likely planning and color-coding each day of the rest of my life.
Throughout my academic career, I have stood out as a hard working and conscientious individual. My diligence, persistence, and concentration have only furthered my success in my educational pursuits. In addition, my discipline and focus have allowed for me to develop into a dedicated student. For example, during my high school career, I held leadership positions in the French Club and National Honor Society. I also participated in several musical organizations such as Empire State Youth Orchestra and Area All State. These characteristics have stuck with me as I begin my collegiate career at The American University through my participation in both the AU Scholars Program, SPA Leadership Program, and my rigorous course load.
During my four years here at AU, I hope to create a lasting impact through engagement in extracurricular activities and promoting inclusion.
