Class of 2007
Major/Minor: English/ Minor in Creative writing and Political Science
I learned how to think critically at Washington College and to voice my opinions with confidence. This has helped me in higher education and my career.
How has your liberal arts education influenced you? How do you apply your LAE in your current career?
I write a lot in my current career and it has helped to just state on my resume that I was an English major. Solid writing skills are generally lacking in most practices so it has given me a step up. I also learned how to think critically at Washington College and to voice my opinions with confidence. This has helped me in higher education and my career.
Who was your favorite faculty/staff member? Story?
Professor Wade. Hands down. I had little interest in politics as an incoming freshman and just took Intro to Political Science as an elective. I had always believed the subject was too over my head but after taking that class with her I was hooked. I have since really developed a passion for it and those classes definitely influenced my choice to launch a career in policy. Professor Wade is a great female role model, as well, and held her students to the same high standards that she believed they should hold for themselves.
