Wheeling, WV

Wheeling Jesuit University's annual giving campaign, "1,151 Reasons to Give," will feature different students over the next several months in a spotlight series. The students will have the opportunity to discuss why they chose to attend Wheeling Jesuit and what they have experienced during their time on campus. This series will also allow potential students, alumni, donors and the community to get to know the student body.

The two students highlighted are Martin Minuzzi, class of 2019, and Bethany Booth, class of 2020.

Martin Minuzzi

"My major is business, with a concentration in management and marketing. During my four years of college, I played on the men’s soccer team and completed community service with the Gabriel Project. I am from Cordoba, Argentina. I decided to attend Wheeling Jesuit for the opportunity to travel to another country and play the sport I love. My favorite thing about the University is the openness to the world as well as different cultures.”

Bethany Booth

"My name is Bethany Booth, and I am from Moundsville, West Virginia. I chose to go to Wheeling Jesuit University for several reasons. I liked that it was close to home which gave me the opportunity to commute. My sister was also attending Wheeling Jesuit, so I saw the opportunities she was taking part in as a student which only furthered my interest in coming here. Finally, the excellent academic reputation Wheeling Jesuit had confirmed that this University was the right choice for me. I am currently a junior nursing student. Ever since I was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, I knew I wanted to be a nurse.

I was inspired by so many different nurses who held my hand and took care of me while I needed it. The thing I like the most about Wheeling Jesuit’s nursing program is the small class size and the opportunities that students are offered. The professors’ doors are always open as well. Anytime I have a question or concern, they always go the extra mile to help. I am also a member of Wheeling Jesuit’s Student Nurses Association. After I graduate, I have hopes to come back to Wheeling Jesuit to pursue my Masters of Science in Nursing (MSN) and become a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP)."
