Sanford School’s undergraduate student, Echo Love, Recognized for Outstanding Academic Achievement
Echo Love was selected to receive a Dean's Medal from the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. She will be recognized at the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Convocation Ceremony on Friday, December 21, 2012. We congratulate Echo on this impressive achievement!
Echo is majoring in Family and Human Development and will graduate this month. She says her favorite class was Infant and Toddler Development, and her favorite professor is Tosh Black. He made a class in which she was struggling fun.
Outside of school, she enjoys doing activities such as kayaking, bowling, and playing laser tag with Barrett Club at Poly. She also enjoys playing the piano, going to the movies, and hiking. We asked her if she had any hidden talents, and she let us know that most people don't know that she plays the piano fairly well.
We asked Echo to tell us who has had an impact in her life. She said her family has played a huge role in making her the person she is today. She mentioned that Christie Priem has also been very influential. "She has been a mentor to me for the past 8 years; she has taught me to be truly grateful for everything in life and to always make helping others a priority."
The best advice Echo has received is, "Don't take things too seriously. In the long run, whether you earned an A or an A- on a paper is not going to matter. Take some time to have fun, laugh at yourself, and get involved in something besides a textbook. Grades are important, but they are only a part of college."
