Erica Salcedo ‘14- Alum Profile

Nice to meet you:

Erica decided to check out Siena because the admissions counselor she met a local college fair was so nice.

Second time is the charm:

It was on Erica’s second visit to campus that she connected with Siena … she initially thought it wasn’t right for her.


Although Erica had a sense of where she wanted to go in life, she wasn’t sure how to get there, so she entered Siena as “undeclared.” Her advisor encouraged her to speak with faculty in the social work department. Thanks to their help, Erica is now studying to become a child therapist.

Why volunteer:

“Helping people makes me feel better about myself, knowing I can possibly make a change in someone else’s life.”
