Hutton Honors College
ALUMNI NEWSLETTER JUNE 2012
From the Dean
Coast to coast, Hutton Honors College alumni are making a name for themselves and making us proud.
To wit, this past spring, Valkyrie Savage '10, a doctoral student in computer science at UC Berkeley, won
graduate fellowship. She's collaborating with her faculty
advisor Björn Hartmann on research in Human-Computer Interaction.
On the east coast John Miller '10 is a regulatory affairs analyst at PEPCO, a major electric power utility serving customers in Washington, D.C. and Maryland.
We can attest to Valkyrie's and John's current biographical details, because they attended 2012 We Are IU events in San Francisco and Washington, D.C., respectively. At the
latter, I had the pleasure of catching up with John and more than a dozen other HHC alumni at the Jones Day Law Firm, a stone's throw (well, more like a cannon shot) from the US
Capitol Rotunda. A special thanks to HHC Alumni Association Board Member Julie Wilensky '91 for helping organize that great event.
We invite you to join us for future We Are IU gatherings and
"after events" that are meant for you, exclusively. What to expect from me on these occasions: news from the HHC,
and a pitch to you to stay involved (e.g., help us mentor rising upperclassmen; share your best ideas about courses, study abroad options, grant opportunities, career advice, and
other services we offer).
Whether or not we see you in major HHC alumni redoubts like San Francisco and Washington, D.C., please stay in touch, digitally. Follow alumni news and notes at our
Facebook site. HHCAA Board Member Justin Krachmalnick '11 created that site, and he also has us
with more than 160 members.
Take some time now to catch up with Valkyrie Savage and her doctoral studies, other alumni, and
current students. Read
Mo Siddiq '12 who
just won an NSF Fellowship to pursue graduate study at the University of Chicago, an award usually reserved for students already in graduate school,
Suzanne Collins '85, author of the wildly popular Hunger Games trilogy, or discover the HHC personalities behind vivid and sometimes controversial opinions in the
IDS. See the links below for
these stories and more.
Let's stay connected, face to face, and in cyberspace.
