As philanthropy chair, Julianna has organized events in collaboration with Kaely’s Kindness, a support group for teenage girls with cancer. In Spring 2017, Sigma Omega Chi organized the Spring Fling Formal for the girls. The event gave the girls the opportunity to dance, win raffle baskets, and have fun with their peers. Through the Honors Program, Julianna completed projects pertaining to the field of education. She completed a project that viewed the visual, auditory, and memory formation processes related to sitting in a lecture-based class. The project results gave her a better understanding of the mental processes that her students are experiencing and will allow her to adapt her instruction to meet the needs of her students.​
