So You Think You Can … be Andie Petrillo. This extraordinary first year student takes the
spotlight in the month of February as she dances around the Deyo Residence Hall, bringing
joy to all of those who get the opportunity to see her perform in action. |
Being on the New Paltz Dance Team, she practices rigorously, and for large quantities of time
for her routines, sometimes up to 3 times per week. She dances and cheers for both the
women’s and men’s basketball teams, raising spirit and fostering a greater sense of the
entire school’s pride. This month alone she performed over 5 times, helping bring home some
Earning her a 10 out 10 for Extra Curricular involvement!
She stops by the RA office daily during duty hours to check in and simply say “hello,” bringing
smiles to our faces. She’ll often sit with us, helping out with menial tasks and keep us
company. When we don’t have enough time to grab dinner before our shift, she’ll run out and
get us a bite at the dining hall. Being extremely friendly and helpful are just two of the many
traits that she exhibits.
Getting her a 10 out of 10 for her Personality!
Participating actively in our hall, she comes to our programs on a weekly basis. She is one of
the residents in the building that rounds up all of the others to have fun. For example this
month, she got her whole suite and section of the building to come play Kama Sutra
Charades, acting out many obscene and hilarious sex positions. This just shows her outgoing
and enthusiastic personality, which brought viewers joy, and helped break the ice for some of
our shyer residents.
For this act she gets a 10 out of 10 for Community Building!
As a first year student, she has to take many classes that are out of her element, the general
education requirements. Now in February as the semester has started, she is challenged with
these new classes. However, this does not faze her as she studies hard and visits professor’s
office hours for help when needed. This demonstrates her commitment to academic success
and amazing her work ethic.
This makes her an A student getting her 10 out of 10!
She often jokes about how she thinks that she is our favorite resident or how she should be
resident of the month in our hall. While I can’t choose a favorite resident, I can definitely see
by her perfect scores that she deserves to receive the First Year Student Of The Month Award
