Austin College meant so much to me. While still in high school, I set the goal of studying abroad in France, and chose my college with this in mind. Several years after graduation, I was lucky enough to get into the French PhD program at Duke University, where I worked with the late scholar of French, Naomi Schor, and spent two more years in Paris, writing my dissertation. Now I’m a professor at Virginia Tech, and very happy here.
