Nicole Santoro

Graduate Intern
Nicole Santoro is a recent graduate, earning her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at CCSU in May 2023. She will be continuing her education to pursue a Master’s degree in Student Development in Higher Education. Her passion for working with students has played a huge role in her educational journey as she has actively engaged with students in various capacities.

She planned engaging games and activities, made daily schedules for faculty and participants as well as created a lively and inclusive environment for participants and counselors. She also stayed overnight with participants in Constitution Hall, providing support and guidance outside of the normal structured activities. This summer, Nicole is excited to come back and be a part of such an amazing program, eager to bring valuable insight gained from her educational background into action.
