Meet Sydney ’23

Hi everyone! My name is Sydney Jackson and I’m a junior at Scripps from the Washington, DC-metropolitan area (the DMV). I’m majoring in Organismal Biology on the pre-veterinary track. Apart from working in the Admissions Office, I am currently one of the leaders of the 5C Pre-Vet Club. I really love how in this role, I get to connect other pre-vet students with resources and just bond over our love of animals. I am also a mentor with the Office of Black Student Affairs (OBSA), which is also 5C. On-campus, I like to study by the pool at the Tiernan Field House, stop by the Motley Coffeehouse for a gluten-free and vegan donut with an iced caramel macchiato, and lounge on Jaqua Quad with my friends.

Ever since joining the Scripps community, I have noticed that I have become a much more outspoken, driven, and community-oriented individual. The entire Scripps community feels like one big family that I can lean on in hard times as celebrate with when I achieve a goal. I’m so excited to be back on campus having the daily interactions I missed so much again. Honestly, I could give all the specific reasons I love Scripps, but you’ll have to wait for future blog posts for those!
