Student Snippets

A WINDOW INTO THE DAILY LIFE AND THOUGHTS OF SLIS STUDENTS

Maria Reilova

Hello! My name Maria, I was born and raised in a small beach town on the
east coast of Florida a little over an hour away from Orlando and yes we
would take field trips to Disney growing up (also to Medieval Times, which
is a personal favorite, it's basically a year around Renaissance
festival-Huzzah!). But I am trading in hurricanes for nor'easters and ready
to brave the winter wearing every article of clothing I own!I am currently
in my first semester at Simmons studying for my LIS degree with a
concentration in cultural heritage informatics. My educational background
is in Arts Administration and I love all things historical! This is one of
the reasons I wanted to attend Simmons in Boston. I'm eager to start
exploring all the fun history Boston has to offer, as well as all the great
sights and eats (pastries from the north end, anyone?)! When I'm not in
class or working in the SLIS admissions office, I'm out exploring my
neighborhood of Brighton to find the best coffee shop, Chinese takeout, and
24-hour convenience store, which are all very important parts of the grad
school lifestyle. I also love going into the city with my roomies and
catching a movie or just relaxing in the commons, specifically to watch all
the cute dogs.
