Liz Bricker: Connecting the World One Day at a Time

Name: Liz Bricker
Major: Communication Science Disorders pursing Rehabilitation Counseling Master’s Degree
Year: Senior Smart, passionate, and fun are only a few words to describe this week’s campus celebrity.

Meet Liz Bricker, a women who is not afraid to fight for what she wants and deserves, and helps others fight for it as well. Liz is Head Transfer Student Ambassador, a member of NSSHLA, part of the Student Technology Focus Group, and President of the Commuter Student Association. I was able to pull Liz away from her busy schedule of taking over the world and was able to get a scoop on her life.

HC: Can you tell me more about Commuter Student Association?
Liz: CSA helps create a connection between the campus and commuters.

HC: What do you hope to accomplish this year with CSA?
Liz: I want to restart and revamp CSA this year. In the past, there was not much done to help commuters feel a part of the campus. This year there will be events and meetups for commuters to join, get to know one another, and finally start to feel like a Pitt student. We had a good turnout at the fair this year, and so far members have been updated on events around campus.

HC: We both transferred from Johnstown last year, but we didn’t really know each other back then. I had a tough time in the beginning, how was it for you?
Liz: I felt lost, especially being a commuter. It made it hard to connect. I decided to help others. After joining these clubs, it helps to create friendships and new bonds. It helps you feel part of the campus and not just a transfer student.

HC: When you’re not busy being superwoman, what do you like to do during your downtime?
Liz: I like to do yoga, paint, watch TV, and chill with friends.

HC: Bucket list?
Liz: After studying abroad, I am more interested in traveling. Except I want to go off the grid instead of just say Paris.

HC: Three questions. Favorite website? Favorite color? Which celebrity would you like to meet?
Liz: I am addicted to Pinterest. My favorite colors are maroon and teal. I would love to meet Jason Segal

HC: Do you have any advice for girls who have just had a rough break-up?
Liz: After ending a long-term relationship, being single is very hard. However, don’t be afraid to be alone. College is a great time to meet new people and experience all you can. Don’t be held back from your past.

HC: How has it changed you?
Liz: I am not afraid to admit what I like and don’t like. I am also starting to go along with the flow. After talking to Liz, I realized that we could all take a page out of her book and realize that everyone feels alone every now and then. These clubs allow others to be themselves without being judged. So commuters, don’t be afraid to join one of Liz’s club and who knows it may help you feel empowered, stronger, and confident like you should feel.
