Favorite part about IC:
The professors, by far. I have never met a professor that did not have time to meet, whether for a specific reason or just to chat. I have grown as a student due in almost entirely the mentorship of various faculty members.

Favorite Honors seminar you’ve taken and why:
Probably Claire Gleitman’s “Staging History.” There were great class discussions and ideas were brought up that would later inform the direction of my thesis.

Coolest opportunity you’ve had through IC and/or the Honors program:
I think the best opportunity that I have had would be the Edinburgh trip. I was able to see so many plays performed by people from all across the world. And to do so with other Honors students. It was an amazing experience.

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