TRANSFERmation Tuesday: Katherine Villacis

Meet transfer student Katherine Villacis, a junior civil engineering major  from Beverly, NJ (Burlington County) who is a resident assistant here on campus. Katherine recently served as a student panelist on Rowan’s first generation college student symposium, hosted by Flying First

Could you share a moment you’ve experienced in which you have felt that Rowan is a welcoming environment for you?

“One of my first experiences since I transferred was just taking the leap and getting involved. Being an RA helps me know what’s going on around campus and connect me to resources. I’ve met returning and professional staff who want to see me succeed. Flying First, Rowan’s support program for first generation college students, is also welcoming environment. We recently had a symposium that was open to other schools, with student panelists discussing their first generation experience.”

Why did you choose Rowan?

“I chose Rowan because of convenience. I went to Rowan College at Burlington County and the programs here made it easier for me to transfer. I didn’t know at first where I wanted to go, but heard great things about the engineering program and knew this was something that could work out.”

(Weekly) Daily Dish: 3 Healthy Breakfasts Under 10 minutes

I definitely consider breakfast an important meal – no one wants to be that person with the rumbling stomach in their morning class. These 3 meals only take a few minutes to make and fill me up more than a bowl of cereal ever will.

1. Avocado Toast

Avocado toast is a trendy, healthy and easy-to-make meal. I’ve been making this almost every day this past semester!

Ingredients:

  • 1 or 2 slices of bread
  • 1 small avocado
  • 2 eggs

Directions:

  1. Toast bread until toasted to your preference.

2. Cook eggs on a medium heat in a small or medium sized pan (a few minutes per side). 

3. Spread avocado on toast and season (I highly suggest the Everything but the Bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s).

4. Top toast with eggs and enjoy!

2. Oatmeal

I love making oatmeal when I have to be up extra early, its so easy to throw in a to-go cup and eat it on my walk to class or meetings.

Ingredients

  • Microwavable oatmeal pack
  • Handful of fruit

Directions

  1. Follow oatmeal directions.
  2. While your oatmeal is cooking, chop fruit of your choice. Once oatmeal is cooked, top with fruit and enjoy.

3. Banana/Strawberry Toast

This is another perfect meal to eat on-the-go barely takes 5 minutes to prep. 

Ingredients

  • 1 or 2 slices of toast
  • Handful of fruit

Directions

  1. Toast bread. While bread is toasting, chop up fruit.
  2. Place fruit on toasted bread and enjoy! To make this a fuller meal, you can add yogurt with some granola.

“I’m very lucky to be studying acting at Rowan because the sense of community here is so strong. In just one semester, I’ve made friends who I already feel so comfortable around and professors who are so willing to help me grow in my field. The small class sizes make it easy to learn and to make friends without the intimidation of a huge lecture class. I’m so excited to see what the next three and a half years have in store for me!” Salma Elwy, freshmen theatre major and Arabic minor from Sicklerville, NJ (Camden County). (First generation American college student).
