Emily Donner '16

Emily Donner ’16, a nursing major from Clarence, initially made her choice to come to Fisher because of the nursing school. She later grew to love not only the distance from home, but the small classes and campus atmosphere.

She finds it extremely beneficial to be living in the greater Rochester area because being so close to three great hospitals—Strong Memorial Hospital, Rochester General Hospital, and Highland Hospital—has provided her with many volunteer experiences. Emily is also a runner, so she feels comfortable running outside in the quiet Pittsford and canal area.

Emily advises freshmen not to be afraid to come to Fisher alone. On her first day, she didn't know a single person, but she made a great group of friends so quickly and is thankful that she faced her fears on that first day of freshmen orientation.
