B.S. in Literature, Media, and Communication, Summa Cum Laude

Lead Designer, Web Communications at Stanford University

 

I am the least likely Tech alumnus; I always struggled with math and science but I love the arts and storytelling.  The bachelors program in Literature, Media, and Communication was one of the only programs I could find that gave me the freedom to evolve my understanding of storytelling in the context of a relevant degree program.  Immediately following graduation, I became the Lead Designer in University Communications at Stanford University.

I benefited immensely from the experiences and perspectives I encountered in LMC classes.  The program offers breadth through an interdisciplinary approach to liberal arts.  The biggest benefit is constant exposure to new ideas and unique people combined with a rigorous approach to problem solving.  With each class I took, I kept uncovering the rich and eclectic experience of the faculty there; getting to know my professors was rewarding and helpful – they’re fascinating and one of the most valuable parts of being in LMC.  Also, there’s a growing alumni base at LMC, so while degrees these days are what you make of them, there’s a great network here to connect with – we go on to do a lot of very different and fascinating things.
