English, Sociology

Alice is the 2011 Class Correspondent.

My experience with The Elm couldn’t have prepared me better for post-grad life. I not only garnered skills in designing publications, which helped me land a communications job right away, but also boosted my management and leadership skills. Not to mention that my memories and friendships will last a lifetime. Right now I work as a communications assistant, designing newsletters and improving website content. In addition, I got an internship at Baltimore Style Magazine thanks to my connections in WC College Relations. Those late Wednesday nights at the Publications House paid off!

Q & A

Hometown? Catonsville, MD

Favorite Sociology Course? Environmental Sociology - I never thought I would ever be interested in environmental issues, but approaching it from a sociological perspective made it accessible and approachable.

Why I Majored in Sociology? Quite simply, I fell in love with Sociology 101 and never looked back.

Sociology Thesis

Gender, Intimacy & the Body: Culture Values and the Rise of the “Hook-up”

My senior capstone examines how cultural values and gender roles shape modern society’s idea and perception of the body, and how these perceptions affect today’s definition of intimacy. I’m examining college hookups as a specific example of these social processes.
