Kara Kauffman - Sociology


Kara is a junior from Cambridge Springs, PA. She is a Sociology major and is involved with various events and activities. Recently she co-presented a research project on eviction during Geneva’s Justice Week. She has been deeply involved in Child Evangelism Fellowship and she helps to run after school Good News Clubs at various locations in the surrounding area. She is also a student leader for the campus’ Center for Student Engagement where she helps students to experience social connectedness via diverse opportunities. In the upcoming spring semester Kara will be studying abroad in Scotland.

"Geneva’s partnership with the Reformed Presbyterian Church in Scotland has helped challenge and deepen my faith by allowing me to experience a new culture full of rich history. While I’m given the opportunity to travel extensively in Europe, I don’t feel like a tourist here—the church family has welcomed us Geneva students with open arms and made us feel like family. Through fellowship with new friends over dinner, helping lead the church’s Kid’s Club, expanding my knowledge in my academic courses, and so much more, Scotland has become a home away from home. I have had the time and space to strengthen my relationship with Christ in a way that I pray will continue after my time in Scotland is complete."
