    Jocelyn Woodin ('24) What's next? Pursuing a master's in English literature at Acadia University.

"I love studying English because you really get a little bit of everything at once; history, religion, social sciences, psychology and even the hard sciences are all studied, too! Literature informs so much and it is super interesting to see its effects."
