Favorite Professor: Professor Chilcoat, Modern Languages. I took my Scholars Research Seminar, completed my Scholars Research Project, and studied abroad in France with her. She is an incredible professor and is extremely intelligent, which I admire, and she always makes time for her students regardless of her busy schedule.
Favorite Class: “Bodies”, my Scholars Research Seminar. This class was absolutely enthralling and it quickly shifted my perspective on how I viewed those around me.
