Hometown: Ferdinand, IN, USA
Grad Year: 2014
Why attend MU: I attended Scholarship Day and met the then-Department Chair, Dr. Gilliar. We talked for the entire interview time about Germany, Kate Chopin, and the things I have done in my life. By the end of the interview, I was sure I wanted to study at MU in the English department.
Favorite thing: As an MU student, I have had opportunities that I might not have had otherwise. For example, I am writing this in Marburg, Germany, where I am going to attend Philips University!
Never expected: I participated in the 2010 Student Research Symposium as a First-Year student. I gave a presentation and wrote a fifteen page paper on one of Kate Chopin's works.
