Lehigh University South Mountain College -  Karol Cyrklaff

“SMC is what college is supposed to be about—learning about lots of things and being able to pursue lots of interests,” is how Karol Cyrklaff ’13 (women’s studies) described his decision to join the program.

One of Cyrklaff’s many interests includes volunteering for the Homework Club. He assists with the “America Reads/America Counts” program run through Lehigh’s Community Service Office. During his sophomore year, Karol served as a site leader for the program, helping kids in first through fifth grades with homework and structured playtime for 90 minutes everyday after school.

Cyrklaff’s likes that in SMC you have a say in what you learn about and an opportunity to influence the direction of the course.
