Senior spotlight: Madison Hershberger, Applied Psychology

DSC_0789 (3)Leading up to December commencement, we’ll be featuring stories & reflections from the University of Indianapolis senior class. 

Madison Hershberger ’18 is an applied psychology major with a minor in ceramics. During her time at UIndy, she has been a member of the Honors Student Association (vice president), CRU, UIndy Dance Marathon (fundraising executive) and UIndy Water Polo (treasurer and vice president). She also traveled to Costa Rica for spring term trips in 2017 and 2018.

My plans after graduation: Next semester I am moving to Disney World to participate in the Disney College Program! I will be working as a cast member in Merchandise from February until May. Afterwards, I will obtain a Child Life Internship and pursue certification to become a Certified Child Life Specialist at a pediatric hospital.

My advice to incoming freshmen: Take advantage of all the amazing opportunities UIndy provides. Travel abroad for spring term to experience another culture.  Attend the various department and campus trips available  and make memories. Try something new and join an RSO. Make your college experience memorable- I promise you can keep up with your academics and go on an adventure at the same time!
