“Lessons in liberal arts.”

Ever since she was a first-year student, Pavithra Suresh has made a point of immersing herself in campus life, and she has blogged about her experiences on the Hollins website. Here are just a few entries. To read more and to see the photos she's taken, visit her blog.

For January term 2014, I have been interning at Estée Lauder’s Global Corporate Communications office in New York City!

I can already feel myself fitting into the culture of the office. Since there are no typical days, my assignments vary depending on what needs to be done. My assignments at work are becoming increasingly more creative and I am loving the freedom that my supervisors are allowing me! I've been working with the corporate intranet, copywriting news articles, and brainstorming more innovative forms of philanthropic giving!

As I'm figuring out what I’m doing for J-Term and getting together everything I need to go abroad, I can’t help but get a little nostalgic. This time last year I would have never guessed I would be who I am now. I’m flabbergasted that I’m already in my 3rd semester here. Time is flying by. With that being said, I am SO excited for what I have ahead of me. I've been planning out the classes I want to take in London (3 classes at London Metropolitan University and 2 classes at London Southbank University) and all of the places I want to travel to (Barcelona, Prague, Istanbul, Vienna).

Whenever my friends at larger universities ask me about Hollins or a liberal arts education, I cannot stop gushing about it for this reason: my liberal arts education at Hollins has not only incited a passion in me for a topic I never thought I would find so interesting but has also provided me various lenses to approach the topic from. In our rapidly globalizing world, the best way we can connect to others is by trying to understand their version of the truth.
