My name is Rachel Majerczyk, and I am currently a sophomore at Benedictine University and a resident on campus. I am originally from Chicago, which is only 35 minutes away from campus or a Metra train ride away. I am majoring in Biochemistry with a minor in Mathematics. I am very interested in research and genetic engineering, but I am still making career decisions and looking into many opportunities. Even as a full-time student, I have two part-time jobs, which include working off campus in retail and as a student ambassador on-campus. I am heavily involved in clubs on campus including yoga club, Rotaract, UNICEF, S.E.E.Ds, Care to Cure Club, American Red Cross Association, American Chemical Association/Society of Physics Students, and tons of intramural sports, including 16 inch softball, volleyball, and sand volleyball. Also, this year I am the secretary of the Student Ambassador Program. I have a lot on my plate, but I’m still enjoying my college experience to the fullest and have had amazing times at Benedictine.
I learned about Benedictine through a college fair at my school and, at my first visit, I loved the environment that Benedictine had to offer. I came here for the academics originally, but have had many great professors, met many mentors throughout campus, and came to know tons of great people that I call my best friends. Benedictine has become my second home. There are great opportunities at this university and, if you have any questions for me, just let me know! 🙂
