Elise Choe is finishing up her doctoral program in the Department of Counseling and Psychological Services. And it’s hard for her to choose one moment that stands out the most from her time in her program.
Instead, she reflects on the relationships she’s built as a student in the College of Education & Human Development.
“My favorite experience in the counseling psychology program has been the wonderful relationships I cultivated with my peers, colleagues, professors and mentors,” she said. “Being able to collaborate with these individuals in diverse ways has been my favorite and most cherished experience by far.”
Choe was recognized for her academic success at the college’s annual Honors Day Ceremony on April 22.
She is the 2021 recipient of the Outstanding Doctoral Student Award in Counseling Psychology, which is given to a doctoral student in recognition of academic performance, service to the department and professional promise.
“For me, this award feels like a part of my conclusion paragraph. I am wrapping up my academic career at Georgia State and many things are my lasts here,” Choe said. “With this context, the award represents a summary or a concluding remark to this chapter of my life. Also, this award reminds me that my time here has been meaningful and fruitful.”
