Across all the various English disciplines, I always find myself gravitating toward the classics, whether they’re novels or plays. They didn’t write them, but Dr. Dole and Dr. Kozusko have introduced me to some of my favorite works during my time at Ursinus. I fell in love with Woolf’s “To the Lighthouse” and Shelley’s “Frankenstein” in Dr. Dole’s Roms to Mods course. Dr Kozusko’s Shakespeare and Gender course as well as Gods, Rebels, and Frauds captivated me while studying “Much Ado About Nothing,” “Macbeth,” and “The Tragedy of King Richard III.” It’s one thing to read these texts, but it’s such an exciting privilege to analyze them with professors who have so much pass ion for the material.

Most Memorable Moment in Class

Our class traveled to Penn to explore their ancient manuscript archives for Dr McShane’s capstone course “What Is a Book?” We took a party bus to get there and spent an afternoon flipping through pages of centuries-old parchment. The entire course has given me new insight into how our culture values information.

Life After Ursinus

Upon graduation, I intend to volunteer with FEMACorps or a similar program which will enable me to help others across the country. After that, I like to believe the world is my oyster. I am putting off a decision on whether to pursue a professional opportunity or graduate school until the time comes. At some point, I hope to go back to school to study law, film, or a higher de gree in English. I don’t know if I’ll wind up arguing, legislating, creating, teaching, or something else entirely with my life. But no matter what it is, I’m glad I’ve taken this road thus far.
