We’re happy to unveil the six marvelous winners of the ePortfolio spring contest! Our judges selected these winners based on their selection of artifacts, reflections, and writing mechanics. Take a closer look at our winners and be sure to explore their award-winning ePortfolios!
Stephanie Jacovino is a junior applied psychology major on the Pleasantville campus. She is a member of many honor societies and committees, including the Honors College. She views ePortfolio as a vehicle for displaying her coursework with pride, stating that it is a way for her to reflect on experiences and growth, “both personally and professionally.” One interesting page of Stephanie’s is her inspirations page where she collects photos and videos that inspire her passions.
Emily Wolfrum is an honors sophomore communications major and religious studies minor. Her ePortfolio showcases her work as layout editor of the Pace Chronicle, her involvement in peer leadership, and her diverse academic papers and projects. Her journalism page displays her published work from various sources. Emily’s reflection is a wonderful testament to the power of ePortfolio:
“A piece of paper could never adequately describe all of the contributions I had made during my college career, nor would a resume allow me to elaborate on the hard work I’d done. And, that’s where ePortfolio came in.”
Shari Bissoondatt is a graduate media and communications student who was also selected as the March ePortfolio of the Month. Shari’s pages detail her travels, unique experiences (like meeting Prince Charles and Camilla), her involvement with dance and theatre, as well as her academic work.
Briana Finelli is a sophomore Personality and Psychology major who was also featured as the December ePortfolio of the Month. She actively updates ePortfolio as she progresses in her college career. Briana highlights her skills and proficiencies on her pages using images, text, links, and journals. Her marketing portfolio is filled with posters that she has developed as part of her internship with SDCA.
Juhi Laungani is a junior arts and entertainment management major whose ePortfolio highlights her awards, activities, and goals. Her showcase page is special because it contains a video of herself giving her high school graduation speech, accompanied by the written script she used. These are the types of artefacts that make ePortfolio different from a resume on paper.
Kristina Grimmer is an honors sophomore in the five year Accounting program. She is actively involved in various honor societies and writes about these on her co-curricular activities page. She also describes her membership of the Programming and Campus Entertainment Board and her involvement in Greek life on campus. On her Introduction page, Kristina sets goals for herself and checks them off as she goes along. ePortfolio helps her keep track of her growth as a person both professionally and personally throughout college, and beyond.
Congratulations to all of our winners!
