Undergrad: Drexel University
Hometown: Philadelphia, PA
Assistantship: Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life
Bio: Hi everyone! My name is Bridget Conaway and I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA. In 2016, I graduated from Drexel University where I was a Psychology major and Communications minor with a concentration in Corporate and Public Relations. While an undergrad, I was a heavily involved leader within the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life, Alumni Relations and Institutional Advancement. Drexel's focus as a cooperative education university allowed me the unique perspective to work full time within Drexel’s Division of Student Affairs while an undergrad. In this co-op I was challenged by my peers and co-workers to advocate for and support marginalized students while I planned large-scale campus events. I was able to touch numerous functional areas including Student Activities, Veteran Affairs, Orientation, and Greek Life. I knew instantaneously that this field was for me.
Since graduation, I have continued at Drexel University as a Residential Desk Coordinator for a Global Learning Community within Residential Living. I am passionate about how student organizations impact a student’s development of leadership and interpersonal skills so I am thrilled to continue on my Student Affairs path with a graduate assistantship in the Office of Fraternity and Sorority Life. In my free time, I enjoy Netflix binging, strong coffee, going to concerts and spending time with friends. I am very excited for the opportunities these next two years will hold and to become a greater part of the UConn family, Go Huskies!
