Hi everyone! I’m Laura Dimmit, and I’m a senior Creative Writing major/Philosophy minor from Joplin, MO. After I graduate from Missouri State, I plan to enter an MFA program and eventually teach writing and literature classes at the college level. In my free time, I like to watch movies with my friends, enjoy the many Springfield coffee shops, and read books that aren’t required for a class.
My advice to first-year students is this: It’s 110% okay to be undecided, whether it’s about your major or not. Capitalize on the resources you have here: ask questions! get opinions! Most of all, don’t worry—college is a journey, not an express train.
