Arianna Davis is a part of William Penn University’s class of 2017. Not only does she hold a 4.0 grade point average, but has also received the Watland-Richmond Research Endowment Award and an Academic Achievement Award for General Psychology. Her practicum work regarding Title IX has been vigorously praised and is even being utilized by the coordinators at WPU. She now holds a degree in General Psychology as well as minors in Human Services and Kinesiology.
Although she has become a cherished WPU alum, she did not begin her career at Penn. Arianna is originally from New Sharon, IA and attended South Dakota State University after completing high school. She transferred from SDSU when she realized she wanted to attend a smaller university where she could find support and success through a small professor to student ratio. She quickly became close with her advisor, Professor Sarah Tarbell, with whom she worked closely with as the Professor’s department assistant. “Professor Tarbell has helped me so much in my college career and she has given me the confidence to succeed. I can’t thank her enough for how much she has helped me,” says Arianna.
