Holly Bates, B.A. in Liberal Arts: English
“The English and Humanities Department prepared me for my career by providing me opportunities and teaching me skills that would help me follow my passions. I really enjoyed how the department fostered both academics and community, and I always felt comfortable asking questions. Though the writing skills and articulations have helped me immeasurably, the most valuable skill I gained is the ability to critically analyze information and make decisions based on critical thought. Studying abroad opened my eyes to the beauty of travel, and interning through The Washington Center led to my career working with the federal government. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the support and encouragement of my department and my professors.”
