Happy Monday everyone! We are back with the second installment of the Senior Series and today, our graduating senior is Hannah Majewski! Hannah grew up in Door county and has two majors, English Literature and Ancient and Medieval Humanities. Here is a little bit more about Hannah.
What was most memorable about your senior year outside of the pandemic?
I’m not sure if it counts, but the August before my senior year I traveled to Oxford with a UWGB faculty-led course and it was one of the most life-changing experiences I have ever had. Absolutely formative to experience one of the world’s centers of academia and the home of writers like C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien.
What was your favorite course?
My favorite course was definitely Dr. Hall’s class on J.R.R. Tolkien, followed very closely by his History of the English Language course.
How are you feeling about the timing of the pandemic?
I’m 29, so my graduation ceremony has been a decade in the making and I honestly hate that I may not get to walk across the stage displaying all of my achievements to receive my diploma. Even if commencement is rescheduled for August I will already have moved out-of-state for my graduate program and may not be able to get back for it. So, in short, it sucks.
What will you miss most about UW-Green Bay?
I will miss my professors the most, the people who have truly invested in my education and future, and my peers that have come to be so important to me.
Any advice for future graduates?
Savor it. I will not get to say goodbye to most of my classmates or my favorite professors before I leave UWGB and I wish I had the chance to tell those people how influential they were to me during my time here. So savor your goofy professors and group discussions that go sideways, because you may not get experiences like that again.
From all of us here at Widows and Orphans, congratulations Hannah!
