Most Influential Professor: Dr. Larson doesn’t have students look at just facts and information, but instead into the different interpretations of history. You think like the people you’re studying, understanding the actions and decisions they made. It opens up a whole new way of understanding the past.

Favorite Part of Class: I enjoy researching for projects, especially in the college archives. I love digging through all the sources; it’s amazing how much information you learn.

Favorite Campus Event: I’m heavily involved in my sorority, and I always look forward to Greek Week. It’s like the Olympics! All the houses come together for friendly competitions; it’s a blast!

Advice for students: Get involved! There are so many opportunities to become a part of something bigger than just you. You make new friends, learn life lessons and grow as a person. Students have a better experience when they’re involved.
