2014 graduate John Holleman, shares that his journey at Tech was anything but ordinary. “I always struggled with math and sciences but I love the arts and storytelling. Literature, Media and Communication was one of the only programs that gave me the freedom to evolve my understanding of storytelling in the context of a relevant degree program.”


The experiences and perspectives he encountered in his LMC classes shed light on Tech’s interdisciplinary approach to liberal arts, constantly exposing students to a combination of new ideas and unique people for a rigorous approach to problem solving. Holleman now uses these skills on a regular basis as the Lead Visual and User Experience Designer at Stanford University Communications producing the main web pages, social media channels and central publications for the university.
