Peer Academic Leader (PAL) Profile

Maggie O'Brien is very excited to be the Peer Academic Leader (PAL) for the Health Professions Living Learning Community (LLC). Maggie is a sophomore, majoring in Nursing and is an active member of the Honors College. She loves talking to everyone, being weird, swimming, baking, spending time with her family and anything to do with Harry Potter. She is involved with Greek Life, Early Admission for Nursing, and intramurals. Maggie chose Nursing because it’s such a huge part of her character and she wants to spend her life helping others. She thinks everyone should join an LLC because her LLC experience gave her the opportunity to meet lots of people she might never have and being held accountable to achieve my goals. Maggie is most excited to interact with her residents and help build a community that they'll be proud of!
