Year at UW: Fourth

About me: Hello! My name is Anna and I'm a senior here at UW, planning to graduate Autumn 2014. I am majoring in environmental studies but am interested in going to grad school for an MFA in Creative Writing. Environmental studies is a pretty interdisciplinary subject, so I've taken classes in various departments like earth and space sciences, fisheries, geography, environmental science and resource management, environmental studies, history, and the basic sciences. Due to my interest in creative writing and dance, I've taken a number of classes in the English and dance departments as well. I've been lucky enough to have studied abroad twice; once for a semester in Sydney, Australia at Macquarie University and once for a four week exploration seminar in Jordan where I learned about water engineering and Middle Eastern culture. Apart from that, my interests include dancing (ballet, modern, musical theatre, salsa, tango), reading, running, working out, and hanging out with friends. If you have any questions about UW or the honors program, send me an email and I'll be happy to answer them!
