Class of 2022

Hometown: Glen Carbon, IL

Major: Studio Art

Concentration: Ceramics

The quirkiest thing I've seen at Earlham was...

probably the number of hammocks that people can fit on one tree on the Heart. I think it was four hammocks in one tree.

My EPIC Journey...

has included getting involved with the Center for Social Justice as part of their Student Core. I get to plan events like MLK day and Peace and Justice Week. I also plan to use my EPIC Advantage to go on a faculty-led trip to Japan to study ceramics and craft in an environmental context.

I chose Earlham because...

it provided me with a welcoming community. I liked how small it is and how connected students get to become to one another. Professors at Earlham truly care about you. Class sizes are usually small which means you are often given a lot of individual guidance and freedom to focus on personal interests.

My favorite class/professor is...

my first-semester freshman seminar class with Steve Heiny called 'The Knowledge Most Worth Having.' Mostly we read great books and learned a lot about our peers in the class. We also got to go to Steve's house for a bonfire. If you ever get to take a class with Steve, do not pass it up. I think freshman seminars are a good place to explore subjects that you may not get to take in your major or they can just be a way to take a class with a professor that has been recommended to you.
