London Green of Adams, MA, is a first-generation college student majoring in Psychology and minoring in Business. Her dedication to academics has earned her a spot on the President’s List every semester, as well as membership into the Alpha Lambda Delta and Psi Chi honor societies. In her time spent at Western New England University, London has embraced many opportunities that have allowed her to grow both in and out of the classroom.
As a freshman, London quickly got involved in the campus community, serving as the President of her Hall Council. She also began tutoring students in the Springfield Public Schools through a program called America Reads. London later became the coordinator for the program, which entailed working to build a strong rapport with her peers, as well as the faculty and staff that she works closely with.
Aware that she has the ability to make a significant impact on campus, London began exploring other leadership opportunities, which eventually led her to become a Peer Advisor. She has spent the past three years working closely with first year students, assisting them in their transition from high school to college and helping them find their own path. She continued her involvement in the First Year Office as an Orientation Group Leader last summer, helping incoming students navigate the orientation process and become acclimated to the campus and its many resources.
In her junior year, London was named Vice President of the National Society of Leadership and Success, which involved working to ensure inductees had a rewarding experience, exploring avenues to complete community service, attending guest lecture series, and participating in other enriching opportunities.
One of her favorite activities is being a member of the Dress for Success, Western Massachusetts Board of Directors, which empowers young women to achieve economic success through networking, career development opportunities, and wardrobe assistance. Much of her role involves attending board meetings and recruiting potential sponsors and experts to support the program.
London credits her success to the unwavering support of her friends and family, who instilled in her the confidence needed to become the best version of herself. She plans to attend graduate school to earn an MBA, and hopes that her graduate studies will allow for international travel.
