New Student Spotlight – Norah Van Gompel
Norah Van Gompel | Radiologic Sciences | Waupaca, WI
Congratulations on acceptance to Bellin College. What made you choose this field of study?
I always knew that I wanted to be in healthcare, I just never knew what branch. I thought that medical imaging was really interesting, so I did a job shadow at ThedaCare Neenah with Radiology and Sonography and fell in love with the Radiology department.
What attracted you to Bellin College?
I really like the small school feel and being really connected with teachers and other students. It is very hands-on, and that is my best way of learning. The community that surrounds Bellin College is amazing, too.
What are you most excited about coming to Bellin College?
I am excited for all of the new things I am going to experience and growing my own community by making new friends.
Tell us about yourself:
I am a product of IVF, but I am an only child. I have 3 dogs; Willow and Piper, who are Bichon Frise’s, and then our newest addition, Oakley, who is a Mini Aussidoodle. I love taking Oakley on walks and running around with her, and we both enjoy going fishing. In the winter, you can find me snowmobiling in the UP or in the field behind my house. My dad owns The Hut Drive-In in Waupaca, and that’s where I spent most of my time growing up (If you find yourself in the area on a Saturday, come visit me!).
What is an item on your bucket list?
Visit Latvia, where my Grandma is from.
