What are you doing now?
I am a first-year PhD student in History at Northwestern University.

How did your experience in the History department at Agnes Scott help prepare you?

Definitely the wonderful professors in the department. They have been crucial to my undergraduate academic development, including providing me the most generous help with my grad school application, introducing me internship opportunities, supporting my trips abroad, and not to mention offering excellent courses. They have brought about a life-changing influence on me, and I believe they will continue to play such a role in the future.

Any advice for future Scotties or future History Majors?
Talk to your professors, get to know them and let them get to know you as well, and bravely take up the challenges in your academic life, you will be amazed by your own potential in coping with them and at the same time by how much support you are able to get from the department. Good luck!
