Meet the Students

Sadie VanDyke '18
Small town girl from Alfred Station, NY excited to be taking my first trip out of the country! I am a Speech and Language Disabilities Major and currently a sophomore at Elmira College. Dance is my passion and I can usually be found practicing
with my Danceline team or laughing with friends. *Sadie's birthday is May 8 and we are so excited to celebrate with her*

Katelyn McKissick is a sophomore at Elmira College studying Speech and Language Disabilities. She is an active member of the college, participating in the clubs Danceline, LISP and Lions Club and is an officer of Orchesis and Silent Voices. She is also a Phi Eta Signa inductee and works on campus as an Overnight Coordinator and Gold Key tour guide. Her hobbies include dance, music and adventure!

Corissa Comfort I am currently a junior and Human Services major at EC. After I graduate next year I hope to get my Masters in Social Work. I live right outside of Elmira in Pine City, NY, but I work in Corning, NY at the Rockwell Museum in Guest Services. In my spare time I enjoy exercising, reading, and shopping. On this trip, I hope to learn everything I can about the people and how they live their lives (culture, fashion, politics, and food) and also to see the sights and scenery.
