  1. I wish I could have taken one class from Jennifer! Also, when was this interview conducted? Any advice on writing a humanities capstone?

    1. Hey Kai,

      Yes, me too! Her classes are rather popular and tend to fill up quickly, so I also haven’t had the opportunity to take any of her courses. This interview was held during Fall 2019, back when there was no global pandemic. Good times! As a rising junior, I don’t have any insight into writing capstones, but if you email her, she might be able to give you some pointers!

      In solidarity,
      Angel
