Seven questions with METS alumna Sam B.
What college did you graduate from, and what was your major?
I graduated from the University of Maine in Orono with a Bachelor’s in Social Work.
What helped you decide on your major?
What helped me decide on my major was being part of the Big Brother Big Sister program in high school and seeing the positive impact the program had on my little sister.
What was your favorite class in college, and why?
My favorite class was probably my field placement course during my senior year in the social work program. This was a class where I got to go out into the field and work in an area of my interest and put my skills to use in a real practice setting. This class also contained a seminar where we met weekly and I got to hear from my classmates what their experiences in their placements was like and I really enjoyed that.
