Bio: Fourth year undergrad pursuing a degree in Integrated Social Studies Education with a minor in History

One of the things that brought me into this organization was the passion and excitement everyone brings to the table. EHS Ambassadors allowed me to come into their family and it is because of that, it has made me who I am today. This passion for EHS inspires me to do whatever I can to make this organization better! That way, we can promote and showcase the excellence of the College of Education, Health and Society and Miami University as a whole!

Bio: Fourth year undergrad majoring in Middle Childhood Education with concentrations in English and Social Studies

Hi, I am Sophia Allegra Marusic, a 5’2” senior with plenty of energy and enthusiasm to make up for what I lack in height!  If you get to know me, you’ll see I am a kind and genuine person who loves to meet new people and hear their story. My concentrations in English and Social Studies are perfect for me because I love to read and write, as well as travel! In order to know where we are headed, we must know where we came from, and history is here and now as well as in the past! Immersing myself in a new city full of adventures is one of my favorite things to do. A few of my other favorite things include: working out, photography, exploring my city (Cleveland), cheering on local sports teams, yoga, shopping, and cooking. I will end here for now, but if you want more information you can visit my website to keep learning more, or just reach out!  https://sophiamarusic.wixsite.com/resume.

When I toured Miami University as a high school junior, I was in awe the moment I arrived on campus. I felt this indescribable feeling of belonging, and this feeling increased tenfold when I became a student here. Classmates started out as strangers and quickly became family; faculty and staff were dedicated to student success and challenged students to be their absolute best. The College of Education, Health, and Society is no exception, and I hope we can help make your experience here at Miami absolutely amazing!
