this month's featured student
Fisk has definitely given me a family connection. Fisk was exactly what I was looking for. I am not just a face in a classroom. I have a relationship with my professors. After graduation in 2021, I plan to join the Air Force. I want to serve my country. I also plan to obtain a graduate degree in social work and behavioral psychology. I want to apply for my graduate degree to my career in the Air Force. I believe my career goals in social work and behavioral psychology are integrally linked to my majors of sociology and psychology. I like both majors.
