Anna Talbot
March 2022
Student of the Month

Anna Talbot, from Fredonia, New York has been named Student of the Month for March by the Office of Residence Life. Anna was nominated for this award by Tylor Cardone, from ITS Service Center.

Anna holds a 3.57 GPA and is very active on campus. According to Cardone, Anna “co-created and co-led the Omicron Delta Kappa Leadership Honor Society, a workshop on conflict resolution for sororities and RAs. Anna shows commitment to her job at the ITS Service Center by working twenty hours a week and working when classes are not in session. In addition to working at the ITS Service Center, Anna is the president of the American Marketing Association which presents biweekly meetings designed for marketing majors and others to practice their skills and prepare them for post-graduation. Anna partnered with the CDO office to facilitate Resume, LinkedIn, and Career Expo Readiness workshops. She also reached out to have guest speakers like a graphic designer, a local small business owner, and a recent successful graduate talk to the club.” Despite how involved and busy Anna is, she remains in the Honors Program and has stayed on the dean’s list for 5 semesters.

When asked about her favorite things about Fredonia, Anna stated that she loves her professor's curiosity about her interests and goals. “My professors take the time to learn about me and then even come to me with opportunities [relating to] my interests and prepare me for the future. That connection is something I knew I would not have been able to receive at a larger college.” Her plan after graduation is to get a position at a marketing and advertising agency where she can continue to grow. She hopes to someday explore her entrepreneurial side and start her own business.
