Meet Shannon

Hey Everyone, I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Shannon Reagan and I am a second year Delta College student. I am studying Journalism & Broadcasting with a concentration in Public Relations, and minoring in Recreation & Leisure. This semester I have a fantastic opportunity. I get to learn more about fellow Delta students and write about them!crop

Delta has been an amazing feature to my education here at Brockport, and I want to share it with everyone. I would like current Delta’s to learn about some more opportunities they can get involved with, and give prospective students something to look forward to when making one of the biggest decisions of their lives.

Delta has helped me grow in so many ways. I am originally from this really weird village in New York called Brockport (I always make this joke). I am a commuter and sometimes commuters have a weird connotation, like we only come for classes and have no friends. I can guarantee you this is not the case for me and I believe I have Delta College to thank for that.

Through Delta College, I’ve really come out of my shell. I was always told before coming to college that I should not live off campus because I will not get the “college experience.” I’m not saying living in the residence halls is bad, but commuting is not bad either. Getting to know my professors and having small class sizes in Delta really helped me. It was the perfect transition from high school to college.

Delta has so many unique aspects that I love. The small class sizes and overall community have helped me get to know my classmates and professors well. I have made so many friends. On the first day of college one of my fellow Deltas and I did a dance off together at a Union Programming event. We definitely lost but we had a blast doing it. Since then I have been to several events with my Delta friends and some of us even joined the campus img_20160406_194717036_hdrradio station together. Joining a club was kind of scary but having a friend to join with really helped.

Another aspect that Delta has given me is the chance to be creative. I am not a big test person. That is just not who I am. I would rather work on creative projects and work in groups. So far in my Delta career I have done artwork, performed in skits/plays, performed experiments etc. I think working with others has been really helpful because now when I go out in the real world, I will know what working as a team member will be like. Finally, one of the most important things I have learned in Delta that other students may not, is how to be professional. When I say professional I mean, I have written a resume, cover letter, interviewed for jobs and more! These are important life skills and they frequently get over-looked by colleges.

There is so much to talk about with Delta! I look forward to meeting you whether you are another Delta or are thinking about becoming a Delta!
