“When I walked in the door everyone welcomed me with open arms and I fit in. It’s personal here, “ Hiwot said. She is involved with the COR team, Wellness Education, Fashion for a Cause, and is also a Presidential Ambassador. “Everything I do at Neumann makes me close with the community. I feel like when I give back, I live life the Franciscan way,” she said.
One of Hiwot’s favorite things is attending retreats. “When it’s a retreat, you get really close to people. I have met most of my best friends at retreats. They are really beneficial,” she said. Hiwot chose a double major, “to feel like I have more options. After graduation I’d like to be a corporate events planner and get my MBA,” she said.
“It’s easy to get involved at Neumann and your time here is about how you make it. There are plenty of great opportunities to make connections and develop resources,” Hiwot said.
