What is happening at Brown today that excites you?
I'm really excited about Brown's Digital Publications Initiative, which is a collaboration between the University Library and the Dean of the Faculty to advance scholarly work through a digital environment. Through collections like 'Race &' in America and Depicting Glory, not only are students getting introduced to the physical and intellectual treasures held across the Brown University Library, but these collections are also making these treasures accessible to the Brown community at large.
As a graduate from the Class of 2012, you’re invited to Reunion Weekend (May 27-29)! What are you most excited about?
I love the buzz that Reunion Weekend creates and I'm glad it has inspired me and many other members of the Class of 2012 to reconnect with each other prior to Reunion Weekend.
Bonus round: What is one piece of advice you would give your younger self?
Take advantage of any opportunity to network, even if you aren't job searching. Do this by taking advantage of BrownConnect for informational interviews with alumni doing cool things, attending Brown events in your area when you're home for the summer, and joining those Brown Club or Class pages on Facebook (even if you don't frequent Facebook). Don't forget to stay in touch with upperclassmen when they become alumni. You never know who you will meet and what those connections will lead to!
