The Class of 2016: Meet Stephanie Fultano ESMW'16

By Jenna Pizzi

FultanoA dedicated athlete and member of the USciences softball team, STEPHANIE FULTANO ESWM’16 says a love of sports inspired her interest in a health and wellness education from a young age. At USciences, Fultano found a great education and values like courage, commitment, and pride that matched her own.

“Not only have I learned about my field of study, but I have grown into a unique individual who strives for greatness regardless of the task,” she said. “I will always hold dear to me the friends I have made through playing softball and will always remember the life lessons experienced through my four years.”

Fultano said in the classroom and on the softball field she has learned the value of hard work.

“If you want to be a physical therapist or biochemist, you know you will have to work for it,” Fultano said. “What I have learned coming to USciences is that all the extra effort you put in definitely is worth it in the end.”

Fultano will bring those lessons with her as she attends the U.S. Navy’s Officer Cadet School in Newport, Rhode Island.
