Credentials: B.A. with Honors in the Liberal Arts | Majors: German, International Studies, Political Science

My Honors experience was a constant reminder to challenge myself to go beyond the assigned lectures and reading. Completing extra projects in Honors-designated courses somehow made me want to go beyond the syllabus in all my other courses. A lot of my Honors experience was in the German department, studying abroad and taking a couple of senior seminars, and I count among my top experiences at UW.
