Programming Coordinator & Pulse Staff Writer
Elisha Jaeke, a third-year from Hartford, WI, is so excited to return as a staff writer for the Honors Pulse! This is her third year working within the Honors Center, but she is new to the position of Honors Programming Coordinator and is enthusiastic to continue contributing to program events and initiatives. The Honors Program was a large factor in her decision to attend St. Norbert College, and she hopes that by showcasing this incredible community of academic and extra-curricular rigor and support, other students can find their perfect fit. Elisha is working toward a double major in Biology and Spanish, and she hopes to pursue a career in medicine with focuses on public and global health policy. Outside of the Honors Program, Elisha serves as the college’s Newman Civic Fellow, a Class of 2020 Representative for the Student Government Association, the recruitment coordinator for the American Medical Student Association, and a Biology TA. She is also involved in the International Medicine TRIPS Program, Her Voice Rocks camp, and is working to expand campus-wide resources for first generation college students like herself. Additionally, she volunteers at the Casa ALBA Melanie Hispanic Resource Center, the Boys and Girls Club, and Camp HOPE. Elisha loves living life at the extremes (aka Mulva basement or third floor - no in between), and she loves to travel, having just returned from a semester abroad in Quito, Ecuador.
