splichal-elliana.jpgElliana Splichal
Major: Nursing
From: Bishop, GA
Sport: Equestrian
Mentors Include: Coach Ellington, Coach Kimberly Wallace and Steve Litton
Favorite Berry Memory: It would be simply unfair to reduce my Berry experience to just one memory. There have been so many memories, good and bad, that have made Berry my home. However, one quintessential Berry memory that comes into mind was one night freshman year. A group of me and some friends made an impromptu decision to take a night hike to the reservoir with windows down and music blaring. We drove down mountain and made the treck to Taco Bell, where we happily munched down on some infamous one dollar tacos. It was a moment of pure joy and one memory that I'm never going to forget.
What’s Next: After graduation, I am moving to Austin, Texas, having accepted a job there as an ER nurse at a level-two trauma center.

Major: Psychology, Religion & Philosophy
Minor: Applied Behavior Analysis
From: Tucker, GA
Mentors Include: Dr. Jordan Rowan Fannin, Ms. Cecily Crow and Dr. Casey Dexter
Favorite Berry Memory: This is an incredibly difficult question to answer. One of my favorite Berry memories was hiking to the Res on my birthday junior year. There were 6 friends with me and we ate a picnic at the Old Mill and then hiked to Res and hung out in the sun. This might seem small, or something many people do, but this day and these friends mean the world to me. Berry has gifted me lifelong friendships and I will forever be grateful for the memories made here.
What’s Next: I am headed to Greensboro, N.C., to participate in The Fellows Initiative!
