PIU Student Profile–Shelter Alokoa

(The following is from our upcoming PIU Spring semester newsletter. If you would like to receive the newsletter, which comes out 3 times per year, send me or Samantha an email and we will make sure you are on the mailing list)

Shelter HeadshotShelterihna goes by Shelter and has been attending PIU since the Fall of 2012. In high school Shelter was familiar with PIU as faculty often preached at her church and her parents had both taken a class or two at PIU. After looking through a liberal studies brochure, Shelter decided to enroll in the Associate of Arts in Liberal Studies degree program. She was excited to take liberal studies courses at a school where she could also take Bible classes to help her grow in her faith.

Since enrolling at PIU, Shelter has taken advantage of many opportunities for service and leadership. She is currently a Resident Assistant in the women’s dorm. Additionally, Shelter has participated in Voices of Micronesia performances both on and off campus. Academically, Shelter has excelled. “I love to learn and while here at PIU, I’ve learned a lot…The courses have not only been intellectually challenging but also spiritually.”

The things Shelter most appreciates about her time at PIU are the DIVERSITY of staff and students that provide the opportunity to regularly interact with different perspectives, staff/faculty that REALLY CARE about and connect with students, and PIU’s emphasis on DISCIPLING students to help them grow in their faith. 

This May Shelter graduates from PIU with her AA in Liberal Studies.
