Ask a Nursing Alum: Brooklyn T. Russick '19

“From the moment I stepped foot on campus, I knew I would call this place home,” said Brooklyn T. Russick ’19. Her curiosity about Shenandoah University began with her mother, Nancy Bates Russick ’90, who is an alumna of the Harry F. Byrd, Jr. School of Business. Her mother shared her stories about and experiences at Shenandoah with Russick, and from this she knew Shenandoah was something in which she was interested.

“From the friendly faces to the beautiful landscape of campus, it just felt like something special,” said Russick. “The small classes and endless resources provided to students made the transition into collegiate life a smooth and easy experience.”

Russick’s fondest memories of Shenandoah are the friendships she made, professors she learned from and the grilled cheese from the Hornet Grille in the Brandt Student Center. Although these are just a few things that stick out to Russick, she also likes to think of her four years at Shenandoah as one big fond memory.

“Shenandoah is a small but mighty community,” said Russick. “We are so diverse, but can all come together over our connection to this school. You will create lifelong memories and relationships here, and opportunities you never would have expected. I will forever consider this place my home.”

While at Shenandoah, Russick was very involved in clubs and her major, which included being a writing tutor for the Writing Center, the secretary of the Public Health Club, a member of the Student Advancement Relations Society, a member of Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, and a student mentor in the nursing mentorship program. She was also the recipient of the Dayton Alumni Scholarship in 2016 and received the Dean’s Undergraduate Award for the Eleanor Wade Custer School of Nursing during the school’s pinning ceremony in December 2019.
