Favorite part about IC:The people. Whenever you need a helping hand, you can count on someone to be there for you!

Favorite Honors seminar (so far) and why:Terrorism and Insurgencies with Chip Gagnon and Why Are We Here? with Tom Pfaff. I’m currently in the Terrorism and Insurgencies class, and given current events, it’s been incredibly interesting to learn about different theories regarding terrorism, historical events, as well as the numerous terrorist organizations and insurgency groups around the world. I always knew I wanted to go into national security policy at some point in my life, and this has sparked my interest even more. Why Are We Here? was my first-year seminar and it provided me with long-lasting friendships and was a great introduction to all that the Honors Program had to offer. I loved it so much that I served as a Peer Mentor for the Why Are We Here? class this past fall.

Coolest opportunity you’ve had through IC and/or the Honors Program:I just recently attended the Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference in Annapolis, Maryland! The Honors program sponsored me to attend the conference, and the theme this year was focused on closing the global gender gap. I was fortunate to meet and make friendships with students, cadets and midshipmen from all over the world, enjoyed some delicious food (and even went to a croquet match!) in downtown Annapolis, and engaged in stimulating discussion and debate. We were even lucky enough to hear two of my favorite female role models speak (among many other notable speakers) – Michele Flournoy, the former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Policy, and Samantha Power, the current U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations! It was a truly unparalleled experience and I encourage every IC Honors student to make the most of whatever opportunities come their way.”

Favorite part about IC:My favorite part of IC is the ability to build a community. Everywhere I go, I feel very comfortable and welcomed. There’s always so much to do, and there is a strong support network that accompanies all of my involvement.”

Favorite Honors seminar (so far) and why:My favorite Honors seminar is Simple Machines because it was very hands-on and allowed me to experience a field that I would have never learned about. The projects were all very interesting and really pushed me out of my comfort zone.

Coolest opportunity you’ve had through IC and/or the Honors Program:I got the opportunity to pitch a TV show to one of the founders of MTV, Andy Orgel at Park Tank.”

Favorite part about IC:The fleeting moment of euphoria upon realizing I wasn’t the only student attending events just for the free food.”

Favorite Honors seminar (so far) and why:Slow read of Wuthering Heights…it was like Kate Bush’s haunting music video, but with more words.”

Coolest opportunity you’ve had through IC and/or the Honors Program:A professor once left a slice of vegetarian pizza in the Honors Lounge up for grabs…as I recall, that was a pretty cool day.
