How has Dickinson prepared you for life after graduation?

Dickinson has shown me the importance of an interdisciplinary education that transcends political boundaries. Through my coursework, extracurriculars and work experiences, I have used knowledge and skills gained from multiple classes, ranging from conservation biology to the history of linguistics. As someone who entered college knowing exactly what career path I wanted to embark upon, Dickinson has provided me with not only a path to achieving my goals but with the freedom to explore my other passions along the way. The amazing people I have met, the lessons I have learned and the opportunities I have been able to take advantage of as a Dickinson student will stay with me long after I graduate.

What are you most anticipating about your career or post-graduate pursuits?

I am excited to take what I have learned in the classroom and apply it to solving real-world problems. I believe that work needs to be done to ensure a just and inclusive world for everyone, and this generation has the power and tools to pave the way for such a reality. I want to continue learning and growing even though I will no longer be in school, always striving to be the best version of myself. Although I will undoubtedly make mistakes, I will rely on my support network as well as the wisdom I've gained here to see myself through the challenges I face.

What are some of the defining moments of your Dickinson experience?

One of my defining moments was completing my independent study junior year with the Department of Psychology, right at the start of the pandemic. I took advantage of the opportunity to delve deep into a topic I am extremely passionate about (integrating behavioral science and climate change planning), and I loved being able to do research and ultimately construct a report as a culmination of my interest in the topic. Of course, another defining moment was studying abroad in Copenhagen, where I was able to broaden my perspective on issues I studied in psychology, sustainability and climate change.

Internship Experience

  • I served as an intern in Washington, D.C., at an organization called Earth Day Network, which plans annual programming and activities for Earth Day. There, I assisted the organization in planning the 50th anniversary celebration of Earth Day by conducting research on international Earth Day initiatives, contributing to press releases about pressing environmental issues and helping to structure grant proposals that would support future programming initiatives.
  • I also interned at Dickinson's own Center for Sustainability Education one summer, where I gained a wide breadth of knowledge on how our sustainability programs are run and the broader role of higher education in reaching sustainability goals. I maintained our living labs (The Hive, The Handlebar and Free Xchange), analyzed our sustainability data for annual reporting purposes and assisted with planning for fall programs, including October 2019's be.Hive conference in partnership with Rare.
  • I also completed a winter externship in January 2020 with the study abroad organization Youth For Understanding in Washington, D.C. Having just returned from my study abroad experience, it was fascinating to observe the effort required to coordinate abroad programs. I helped update their website, brainstormed ideas to name future programs and performed research on international organizations to partner with for funding and scholarship purposes.

Sivan Komatsu

Majors: psychology, women's, gender & sexuality studies
Hometown: Jericho, New York
Graduate School: University of Washington
Field of study: school psychology

How has Dickinson prepared you for life after graduation?

The skills, knowledge and experience I gained at Dickinson will undoubtedly be huge assets in graduate school and beyond. Between my two majors, I have a solid foundation on which to begin my graduate studies. My psychology major has provided me with a wealth of knowledge about mental health, and my women's, gender and sexuality studies major has allowed me to view mental health within sociopolitical contexts. Combining these majors has also allowed me to become skilled in both quantitative and qualitative research methods. This background of knowledge will be incredibly useful in my Ph.D. program. I have no doubt that the experience I've gained from my classes, jobs, internship, externship, study abroad and volunteer work will serve me well after graduating from Dickinson.

What are you most anticipating about your career or post-graduate pursuits?

I have been dreaming about attending this particular Ph.D. program since I was in high school, and the fact that it is about to become a reality is mind-blowing. I am so excited to continue my education and to use what I learn to help schools, children and families. I look forward to creating long-lasting, sustainable change in the field of school psychology through research, practice and advocacy.

What are some of the defining moments of your Dickinson experience?

The most defining moments of my Dickinson experience have been when I was able to apply what I was learning in class to the real world. In January 2019, I participated in Dickinson College's externship program and shadowed clinicians at Wellmore Behavioral Health, a mental health and substance abuse treatment provider in Waterbury, Connecticut. In the spring of 2020, I studied abroad in Copenhagen, Denmark, where I conducted psychological research and served as a clinical psychology practicum student at a school for adults with severe mental illness. I was also able to work with the Dickinson College Wellness Center to get mental health crisis hotline numbers on newly printed student ID cards. I will always be grateful for this opportunity to advocate for something so important to me and for the ability to make a change at Dickinson College.

Having such close relationships with my professors, especially those in the psychology department, allowed me to seek invaluable advice and mentorship from them. When deciding to apply for graduate school in counseling psychology, I received an incredible amount of support and guidance from my professors. Additionally, working in the Clinical Assessment and Research Lab during my senior year under Associate Professor of Psychology Suman Ambwani made me a more confident researcher, motivating me to continue researching post-grad.
