Senior Spotlight: Samantha Salyer

Written By: Elizabeth Patrick

I am excited and proud to introduce you to Samantha Sayler. Samantha is currently a senior at Defiance College and is from right here in Defiance, Ohio. Here at Defiance College, she is a double major in psychology and social work and will be graduating this May.

While Samantha has been here, she has been involved in various clubs and programs. One program that Samantha is involved in is the McMaster’s program. As a part of the McMaster’s program, she is working with the Panama mission and will be wrapping up her educational journey as a scholar this year. Samantha’s project is focused on positive study skills and study habits to eventually positively affect the dropout rate.

Samantha is also involved in the social work program, honors program, the progeny poetry magazine, and the college choir. Here at Defiance College Samantha is very involved in a variety of different clubs and organizations.

If Samantha had to give advice to underclassmen, she would say that you should step out of your comfort zone and try something new. She believes that you have nothing to lose but everything to gain.

Samantha also believes that a student should get involved, get to know new people, and make connections. In conclusion, Samantha’s advice to underclassmen is to get involved and try new things as you have nothing to lose but everything to gain.

Samantha chose Defiance College because of The McMaster’s school. Samantha believes that is one program that she has not had any exposure to from any other college or university.

Defiance College is also unique for Samantha because of the smaller atmosphere and the stronger connections a student can make with other students and professors.

Some of Samantha’s favorite memories involve the choir department. She has had so much fun growing and learning over the last four years. The choir trips they took are priceless memories. Even though Samantha is not a music minor, she has learned a lot about music and made many friends.

Samantha would not trade any of those for anything as she has had a great four years. Sadly, this chapter is ending, but once one ends, another one begins!
