Ellen is currently a sophomore in the College of Arts and Sciences at Cornell University where she intends to major in American Studies with Minors in International Relations and Russian. She got involved with the Cornell Alumni Association Travel Program as a Social Media Manager this summer, finding creative and fun posts to share with the alumni community. Passionate about travel and other cultures, working with the organization has been an exciting and educational journey for her. On campus, Ellen is involved in the Women’s Varsity Track and Field program where she competes in the short sprints in both the winter and spring seasons. She is also a member of the 400 Club, an honor given to athletes who receive a 4.0 during a semester at Cornell. She will continue to manage the Alumni Association Travel Program’s Social Media pages throughout this semester.
