IC Honors Student Spotlight: Erika Olsen ’18

Meet Erika, our first student spotlight of the year, a sophomore TVR major with a minor in CMD from Staten Island, New York! Learn more about Erika below:


Favorite part about IC: “I love the incredible alumni base IC has built up over the years. Alumni are always willing to talk to you about your plans and goals and give advice.”

Favorite seminar (so far) and why: “I loved taking Bruce Henderson’s Teenage Wasteland class. Not only were the books we read very interesting, but the class really bonded and got to know each other. It was a great way to become more well-read and to meet new people in my freshman year.”

Coolest opportunity from IC and/or the Honors Program: “Through the Park School Internship Database, I learned about a syndication and post-production company in my hometown. I applied to be an intern and was able to learn a lot about the industry the summer after my freshman year. It was a great experience and I can’t wait to see what else IC has in store for me.”

We’re always looking for interesting students to highlight in our Student Spotlight series.
