Hi everyone! I’m Laura Dimmit, and I’m a junior Creative Writing major/History 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. My first two years here at MSU have taught me so much, and I’ve gotten involved with some great organizations. Currently, I’m active in Gamma Sigma Sigma (a national service sorority), the planning committee for Public Affairs Week 2010, and Scholars House Hall Council. In my free time, I like to watch movies with my friends, enjoy the many downtown 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.
