Favorite part about IC:
The amount of opportunities there are to get involved and interact with others!

Favorite Honors seminar you’ve taken and why:
Wonder Women and Lethal Girls:Feminism in Sci-Fi and Fantasy!!! Granted it’s the only one I’ve taken but it was such an interesting and fun class. I loved my professor, Katharine Kittredge, and my classmates. We did many fun activities, such as take self-defense and belly dancing classes, take trips to the comic book store in the commons, and color!

Coolest opportunity you’ve had through IC and/or the Honors program:
Honors gave me the opportunity to become published during my freshman year through the Honors Symposium Journal!!

 

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

Favorite part about IC:The people, for sure. There are so many different people with different interests and skills, that not only have I made lasting, DOPE friendships, but I can also abuse my friends immense talents for my own gain.”

Favorite Honors seminar you’ve taken (so far) and why:Dark Knight. Why? It’s about fudging BATMAN!”

Coolest opportunity you’ve had through IC and/or the Honors Program:I could talk about a million amazing collaborations between people more talented than me, but my favorite was writing and directing a workshop of my original musical ‘Heart Center: The Yoga Musical!’ Having the opportunity and resources to actually put on my vulgar passion project was fantastic, especially being able to work with actors who make my work seem way better than it really is. Fellow Honorite (Honorarian? Honorer?), Carrie Lindeman was the biggest help for co-writing the musical and being responsible for any song that sounds good. Expecting a full production of the show at IC this fall. It’ll be good and funny… hopefully.”
