Chloe Mieras ’21

Where are you from?

Lorain, Ohio

What are your majors?

Political Science and Religious Studies with a possible minor in Women’s and Gender Studies

Why did you choose to study these subjects?

I want to work to better our nation and be a better and more tolerant person. As someone who wants to work in the public sector in the future, political science is the no-brainer, but religious studies will give me a view into other cultures and beliefs that can only make me a more informed and kinder person.

What is your favorite class/faculty member, and why?

Brian Clites is both an amazing advisor and professor. He cares about every individual and will do whatever he can to help you succeed. Hes reachable and is always willing to help his students through anything, from a paper for his class to personal problems outside of the classroom. He is the kind of professor that all should experience and all should want to be.

Why did you choose CWRU?

I chose CWRU because I wanted to go somewhere where my interests were unique. In a small department a student can get opportunities and connections just not possible in a classroom of 400.

What do you like best about CWRU?

The friendships you can make. My three best friends are from Chicago, Boston, and Brooklyn. If it wasn’t for CWRU, I would never have been blessed with them.

What do you like best about living in Cleveland?

You are one short walk or bus ride away from nearly anything you could want to do.

Describe any research projects, study abroad, internship or other unique experiences and opportunities you have had as a result of being a CWRU student.

I am currently a bridge member for the youth council through EYEJ Cleveland: Empowering Youth Exploring Justice. I am also an intern for Senator Sherrod Brown’s Cleveland office.

What extracurricular activities are you involved in?

I am mostly involved in RHA : Residence Hall Association. I am the president of Mistletoe Community Council, a residential college consisting of four res halls. I am also the National Communications Coordinator for the 2018-2019 school year.

What are some of your interests and hobbies?

I love crafting! Many of the decorations in my dorm room are DIY projects I did!

What do you consider to be your biggest accomplishment so far?

Receiving the internship for Senator Sherrod Brown as a freshman and earning a 4.0 GPA my first semester.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Studying hard in Law School to be a criminal defense attorney.
