Arielle Burger is a senior from Drums, Pennsylvania majoring in Communication. In addition to being one of the most experienced consultants at Rahall, she is a member of the Eckerd College dance team and worked with the recycling program during her first year. In her spare time, you can find her swimming laps at the pool or down by the beach studying. Arielle enjoys dancing, swimming, diving, and spending time with her friends and family. Stop by at Rahall – she would be happy to help you!
Hailing all the way from Edina, Minnesota, Ethan Leder Cooper is much more than a Ryan Gosling look-a-like. He is also an Environmental Studies whiz, the president of Hillel (Eckerd’s Jewish Cultural Club), and very single. On a more serious note, Ethan enjoys a round but less tannic Merlot blend. If there is one thing Ethan can’t live without, it’s the outdoors. This will be Ethan’s second year on the Rahall Team. Stop by at Rahall – he would be happy to help you!
Julia was born and raised in a little town called Eustis, FL. She is a psychology major with a theatre minor and hopes to one day work at the VA as a psychologist. In addition to working at Rahall, she also works at the library. She enjoys 3 day eventing with her horses Lindsey and Curly, playing the piano, flute, and singing, and also is very active in IORG. During the summers, you may find her lifeguarding at Walt Disney World’s Typhoon Lagoon. She has been a member of the Choir here on campus since her freshman year and is now a member in the new Woman’s Ensemble. She is one of our newest consultants and is thrilled to be a part of the team!
Sarah Fick is from all over the United States. After being born in Michigan and spending her first 8 years of life there, she moved to Hawaii until the 8th grade, and later spent high school in North Carolina. Now in her third year at Eckerd, she has made Florida her home. She enjoys going to the beach along with spending time with her friends, family, and her family's new puppy. You can find her on the weekends hanging out with friends - most likely in Nu or Omega. She is the only Biology major on staff and she is a new consultant this year. You can request her for your science presentations!
