Why that major? I love literature. It’s one of the purest ways to study and understand humanity.

Favorite TV Show: The Office, Favorite Movie: The Lord of the Rings Trilogy 

Favorite Memory of College (So far): My first British literature class. I had awesome classmates and an amazing teacher who, at the end of the semester, invited us all to a house party – which sounds weird (and it definitely was) but it wasn’t.

Hobby: Writing and drawing.

Plans for the summer? Internships and read a pile of books that weren’t assigned to me.

Advice for prospective students: When you first start college, there’s usually a daunting feeling that you should do well in every class. Never let that feeling go.

Your favorite article you’ve written for University 101: Why Study Groups Don’t Work

Your experience writing for University 101: Writing for the Academia section was almost therapeutic. As a senior, it was fun to look back on certain experiences and convert them into advice columns that I wish someone had given me.
