Kacie Hoagland '17

Flanders, NJ

Hey! I'm Kacie, a senior studying English and Spanish with a minor in psychology here at Temple. I was born and raised in Roxbury, New Jersey, so I was nervous to go to school in Philadelphia, 2 hours away from the only home I had ever known. However, I quickly fell in love with everything this city and Temple University have to offer. Throughout my time here, I have gotten more involved by joining several clubs within Honors, as well as a sorority my freshman year, which opened the door to so many service, leadership, and networking opportunities that I wouldn’t have found otherwise. I also work as a Writing Tutor on campus so I’ve had a lot of interaction with students from almost every single college and major that Temple has to offer. And of course, my favorite thing to talk about is the time I spent studying abroad; I travelled to London for six weeks one summer and spent my Fall 2015 semester in Barcelona, which were two amazing experiences I would not have had if I hadn’t decided to come to Temple. The friends and experiences I have made in my time here have truly helped me to grow and realize exactly where I want to go in life. I hope you come to feel the same way!
