Senior Spotlight: Sarah Lebowitz and Mathew Hursey

Sarah Lebowitz

Sarah Lebowitz, studying Business, is a senior who transferred and began her studies at WC in the fall of 2016.

Originally from East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, Sarah is exploring her options for post-graduation. “I have an internship set up for after graduation, but I’m looking at options for either graduate schools or taking a full-time position job,” she shares. “I would love to further my education and to continue to make an impact of those around me.”

Although her time at Wilmington has been short, Sarah has made the most of it by being invested in many campus activities. On campus, she has been in the International Club, Amnesty International, Business Association, Mentor Program, Jewish Cultural Club, Stress Isn’t Worth the Mess, and Multicultural Affairs. She represented WC in the Model Arab League for two years and has volunteered at Wilmington Area Humane Society.

“I’ve experienced so many amazing things in just the last two years at Wilmington College,” shares Sarah, “but my favorite experience will be Model Arab League, introduced by Marlaina Leppert-Wahl. All MAL events I’ve been a part of in the last two years were special to me, but my favorite part was experiencing Model Arab league both on a regional level and national level. Not only have I’ve met amazing people all over the world but I’ve grown so much as an individual this past year, thanks to MAL.”

Sarah offers great advice to underclassmen: “Get involved, even if it’s something out of your comfort zone. The more I got involved, the more tools I’ve learned to utilize for the real-world after graduation. For that alone, I’ll be forever grateful for.”

Mathew Hursey

Mathew Hursey, also goes by Matt, started at Wilmington in the Fall of 2014. He majors in Agriculture with a concentration in Agbusiness and Political Science.

From Newcomerstown, Ohio, he plans on pursuing a career with USDA NRCS as a Soil Conservationist. During his time at Wilmington he has been involved with the Service Leader Executive Board, Amnesty International, Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity, and both the Fall and Spring Lobby Trips.

“My best experience was always going on the Spring Lobby Trips,” shares Matt. “Every year they were always very rewarding and taught me valuable skills I can use in the future. Also I have had a lot of memorable experiences and moments with my [fraternity] brothers that I will never forget and will be thankful for after I graduate.”

Matt’s adivce to underclassmen is to that “You only have four years, maybe five, at Wilmington. Make the most of them and get involved. Find an organization and people you like and build a legacy at Wilmington. It may be hard work while your doing it, but you don’t want to look back on your time at Wilmington wishing you had done more.”
