Student Profiles

Sarah Williams '17

Mountain Top, PA

Hi everyone! My name is Sarah and I’m a Psychology major and Women’s Studies minor on the pre-physician assistant track. I grew up in the small town of Mountain Top, Pennsylvania but I always knew I wanted to go to college in an exciting city like Philadelphia (even though Philly doesn’t have Sheetz). At Temple University, I found both the big city feel and the welcoming campus community that I was looking for. In addition to helping out prospective students on the Honors Admissions and Transitions Team, I volunteer as an EMT with Temple University Emergency Medical Services, I work as a Peer Advisor for the College of Liberal Arts, and I take part in various feminist and LGBT activities around Philadelphia. When I’m not in the library studying and writing papers, you can find me biking around the city, at a concert or restaurant with my friends, or at home re-watching The Office on Netflix. After graduation, I hope to attend PA school in Philadelphia or New York City and adopt two small dogs. Feel free to email me if you want to learn more about Temple, buy me dinner in the city, or talk about cool bands!
