Hello, my name is Jack Cleveland and I am a 5th semester senior at Holy Cross College. I am a graduating with a double major in Business and Communications. You are now looking at my Senior online portfolio or 'eFolio'. Throughout this eFolio, you will be able to learn more about myself, Holy Cross College and most of all, how it has shaped me to become the person I am today.
Throughout my time here at Holy Cross, I have been able to gain many different world views and experiences. I also have developed many of my communication and technological skills through my academics. Socially, I have made a big impact on Holy Cross in the many different events and organizations I have been apart of like: SGA, Office of Admissions, New Student Orientation and more.
The theme of my eFolio is "Embrace the Storm". I actually first heard this saying on one of our school retreats (Spes Unica) offered here at the school. The concept of this saying is this: Throughout our lives, we will encounter new experiences and environments. Wherever we go, we bring all of our past life experiences with us. In this case, the milestones in our life (i.e. High School Graduation, College Graduation, Future Careers, etc.) are known as 'clouds'. When we come up to the next milestone in our lives, a 'storm' is formed. This storm consists of everything one has known up until this next point and what they are about to experience. I plan to take the 'cloud' in my life that is Holy Cross and merge it with the next milestone in my life, thus embracing the storm of two different worlds colliding. I will meet knew challenges head on, while never forgetting what Holy Cross has taught me...thus embracing the storm
