Elizabeth Albert
Cincinnati, OH
Psychology
Will be teaching English in Reims, France, through the French Cultural Ministry. Will eventually go to graduate school and pursue a career in psychology. I have volunteered with Camp Kesem since freshman year, which has been an incredibly gratifying learning experience. I also studied abroad in Aix-en-Provence, France, my junior year, and loved it.

Peter Alrich
Evanston, IL
Supply Chain and Management
Mitte Honors
Moving a short drive over to Columbus, IN. Will be starting out at Cummins Engine Co. in a 2-year rotational program called the Manufacturing Development Program - Supply Chain Track. For 6 of those months will be at another Cummins facility in a different state or country. I really enjoyed the traveling I was able to do thanks to the IEP grant (I studied abroad in Hong Kong). Besides that I enjoyed the discussion lunches/dinners - got to meet some interesting people, hear some interesting ideas, and of course eat good food. My favorite of those was the one with KIVA founder Jessica Jackley - I was a big fan of the site before, and was really thrilled to meet her and hear what she had to say.

Natalie Avon
Evansville, IN
Journalism
Honors in Journalism
Will be completing a Pulliam Fellowship at the Arizona Republic newspaper in Phoenix, AZ this summer. I received a few grants from the Honors College, and they made it possible for me to study abroad in London, an experience that changed my life.

Amy Axelrod

Honors in Business
Will Work for the chemical manufacturer Dow Corning as an associate plant accountant.

Robert Barnell
Louisville, KY
Spanish, Geography
Will be an intern with Catholic Charities' refugee resettlement program in Indianapolis, interpreting and helping find jobs for resettled refugees. I enjoyed Prof. Buggenhaggen's African Islam class, Prof. Reilly's Monks, Nuns, and Medieval Art class, and Prof. Jung's linguistic analysis class. Through the Honors College I got to attend some operas and plays and also a talk with my hometown's mayor. The Honors College also helped me with tuition and an alternative spring break to E. St. Louis, IL.

Lauren Bell
Cincinnati, OH
Double Bass Performance, Music Education
Will go to graduate school to continue studying string pedagogy. Hopes to teach music in the classroom for awhile as well as privately. Eventually, would like to get a doctorate in music education and focus on incorporating double bass pedagogy into the general string classroom. I didn't participate much in Honors College activities because I was so busy with two majors in the music school. I did take a couple of courses, which I found were a nice mental break from doing music 24/7. Honestly, the Metz Scholarship and the banquet offered annually was my favorite part. Without the scholarship, I wouldn't have been able to come to Indiana, and the food at the banquet was a nice break from college grub!

Samantha Benson
West Lafayette, IN
Biology
General Honors Notation
Will be attending the University of Washington in Seattle, WA, pursuing a Masters of Public Health Degree in the Maternal and Child Health program. Was awarded a Maternal and Child Health Traineeship Award to support first year of studies. I loved living on the HRC my freshman year. It let me connect with other students with broad interests, and provided a safe, fun place to make friends and spend time. Most of my best friends here at IU are still people I met my freshman year in the HRC community. I also really appreciate the effort the HHC makes to provide scholarships to students based on merit and grants to students for outside studies. I have benefited from both of these, and I think they are a great way to encourage and reward independence and scholastic achievement.

Emily Berman
Louisville, KY
Jewish Studies, Philosophy.
General Honors Notation
Will be working in Washington, D.C. as a National Field Organizerfor the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), which is a pro-Israel lobbying organization. The HHC has been one of the most important parts of my wonderful college experience at IU. From the very first day I got involved with the Hutton Honors Council Association, and this leadership experience opened doors to so many exciting campus opportunities. The administrators, advisors and staff at the HHC always have their door open and are more than eager to get to know undergraduates, mentor them and support them in any way possible. I truly feel I have formed a family with my peers and mentors at the HHC, and it will be a huge part of my great IU memories. The honors classes were very small and the professors had amazing backgrounds. The classes were taught for the pure joy of learning. I specifically remember one professor, during my freshman year, who invited me over for tea while he helped me improve my writing style. Another honors professor has become a mentor and friend and has guided my career path during my senior year. Lastly, the Assistant Dean of the HHC has gone above and beyond to help students. The HHC is a rare environment of students who want to succeed, faculty who are excited to teach undergraduates about their passion, and administrators who will do anything for their students. I am so thankful IU has the HHC to make a smaller community at such a large campus.

Will be teaching secondary math in Copan Ruinas, Honduras for a year. I loved taking HON-H 203 "Reading and Writing Short Fiction". It was a class of fifteen from every age and major, and we all easily made friends with each other. Everyday when people came early, we would talk rather than text. Class time was interesting, fun, but still engaging and educational. I've made friends with a sophomore journalism major that I would have never cared about if not for HON-H 203.

I have attended many of the lunch discussions and greatly benefited by learning from some of the brightest and most influential people in the world. I have held leadership positions within Hutton for the past two years for the on-campus apartments (Wilkie) and off-campus communities. I am greatly appreciative to have been awarded grants through Hutton to study abroad in Hong Kong during the spring semester of 2009. While studying abroad, I was able to make 5 trips into mainland China and spent time after the conclusion of classes to backpack around Southeast Asia (Philippines, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Macau, Cambodia, and Thailand).

Anthropology, Classical Civilization
Honors in Classical Civilization, General Honors Notation
Either attending University of Illinois-Chicago to obtain a master's degree in urban planning, or doing volunteer teaching at Nativity Prep Middle School in New Bedford, Massachusetts for a year or two. HHC has always been a great resource for me during my time at IU. When I was struggling to pay for my semester abroad in Athens, Greece,HHC gave me a $2000 grant that essentially put me over the edge and allowed me to go. That semester was one of the greatest experiences of my life. HHC courses during my four years at IU were excellent, usually assembling a class of 15-25 bright and unique students to discuss topics of contemporary and historical interest. Classes were offered across a variety of fields, which was tremendously interesting to me. Teachers always forced me to be far more creative in HHC courses than in any of the other classes I took at IU, which was refreshing.

Austin Hall
Zionsville, IN
Finance, Spanish
Honors in Finance, General Honors Notation
Will be in working in New York City for Goldman Sachs in investment banking. I received an annual scholarship from the HHC for all four years of my time at IUB. This was very helpful to me in funding my education. Although I only took two classes from the HHC, both were fantastic opportunities to venture outside of my studies in finance and Spanish and have a sort of liberal arts experience. I took one during my sophomore year and the other during my senior year. Both classes taught me a lot about myself, my goals, and how to think about my purpose in life.

I had an excellent honors advisor my freshman year who helped me plan for four years of classes and allowed me to begin exploring various opportunities at Indiana University. I also enjoyed taking honors versions of classes because the class sizes were smaller, conversations and in-class topics were more thought-provoking and the professors were all excellent. Additionally, I had a great experience taking an honors independent study on why people love. Finally, I appreciated the scholarship both at Indiana University and also for the semester in Florence, Italy.

General Honors Notation
Will go home to Naperville, IL. Will be nannying and working for dad's liquor business and will also be searching for other career opportunities, like law school and graduate school. I took a lot of courses from the Honors College through my four years. The best one was H228: Community and Knowledge taught by Donna Eder. It really helped me explore new things that I would probably not have gotten the chance to experience otherwise. Honors classes are smaller, more intimate, and go a lot deeper than other courses. It basically took the "big school" feel out of IU and placed a smaller, intimate setting inside of it. HHC made my college experience extremely fulfilling.

Angela Shaul
Indianapolis, IN
Business Marketing
Pursuing a consultative sales career in Indianapolis, IN. IU has such a wealth of information and resources available. So much, in fact, it is nice to have the HHC here to simplify/display all these opportunities available to students. I appreciate the ease with which HHC made the arts and IU resources available to their students. Additionally, I am thankful for the financial support I gained from HHC to study in China over spring break. HHC's emphasis on really culturing their students sets us apart from other universities.

General Honors Notation
Will become insurance sales agent at Aflac's downtown Indianapolis office. I was involved in the HHCA as president of the Greek Council then as CL of the Greek council and received a grant for being a CL. I enjoyed this experience and always recommend it to other students entering IU. Being involved in the HHCA made me more aware of everyday interaction with the HHC. I took more honors courses, stopped by the new building more often, attended more HHC events, paid more attention to HHC emails, met more HHC students and applied for the GHN. I am not sure I would have paid as much attention to HHC in my college career had I not been involved in the HHCA. I love the new HHC building and it even encouraged me to take 3 HON classes there. I greatly enjoyed the HON honors courses and my honors courses in the business and economic schools. I had great professors and loved the small class sizes. Richard Cecil's poetry class is the best.

Madhavi Singhal

Attending IU Medical School I wish I had taken more advantage of the travel and summer research grants offered by the Honors College. Also, I wish I had gone to the lunches and dinners you guys hosted with speakers and other influential guests. However, my freshman year I did live on a honors floor. I am really glad I did because I met some of my best friends there, and having a close group of people on the floor made the transition from high school to college much easier.

Working as a fulltime researcher in the psychology department at IU and doing parttime research at the Kinsey Institute. Will go to graduate school the following year. I had really great classes and took courses that had nothing to do with my major. If I was not in the Honors College, I would probably not have taken these outside courses.

Plans to travel to Europe with three friends for a month. After that, will move to Minneapolis and work as an internal auditor for 3M starting in July. HHC has allowed many opportunities for me. Receiving the HIEP Grant really enhanced my study abroad experience and allowed me to fully utilize my time in Europe. IU has been a phenomenal place to learn. I was always told that you "learn how to learn" in college and I believe I have done this because of the people that I have met here at IU. I would not change a single thing about my four years in Bloomington.

Honors in English
Interning at Wiley Publishing in Indianapolis for the summer before going on to graduate school at Butler University to study creative writing in their MFA program. Living on an honors floor freshman year was the best decision I made because it allowed me to be around other goal-oriented students, and I met friends living there that I am still friends with today and have lived with all 4 years at IU.

Also, through the HHC, I was able to attend the Water's Global Forum Conference that summer in Kiel, Germany and Oslo, Norway. The individuals I met provided me an amazing opportunity to increase my global perspective on political and social issues.
