I feel really good about my education and what I can accomplish at my internship, and I think I am prepared for the "real world" with my E-town education. --Beth Trovato
Accounting major Beth Trovato of Manheim, Pa., chose to attend Elizabethtown because of the positive reputation it has for its business students. She believes Elizabethtown College has facilitated her growth as person and lived up to its positive reputation.
“Overall, I think Elizabethtown College does a great job of helping students become more well-rounded, successful and dedicated individuals,” she said.
Living out the College’s motto, “Educate for Service,” Beth has participated in numerous service projects during her time at E-town.
“Every service experience I have had through the College has given me a different outlook on life and made me want to do everything I can to make a difference,” she said.
In 2011, she went on the Habitat for Humanity service trip to Honduras, where a group of E-town students built homes for two less-fortunate families. While there, Trovato received a unique education.
“The trip to Honduras gave me an appreciation for everything we have here in the United States and take for granted every day,” she said. Beth is pictured, above, with a young girl during this trip.
In addition to service trips, Beth also is actively involved in various activities on campus. She works as a peer tutor in learning services and is a student assistant in the accounting department. Recently, she began an internship where she was able to put her E-town education into action.
“I feel really good about my education and what I can accomplish at my internship, and I think I am prepared for the "real world" with my E-town education,” said Beth.
