Alys Dutton, R.A., Miller 316
Year/Major: Class of 2015, Religious Studies
Hometown: Columbia, Maryland
Favorite thing about Hiram: Hiram really does feel sometimes like a student run school. We're encouraged to think big and be ambitious, and given the resources to do so. On campus I see a great mix of tradition and reinvention, with so much ground to break still.
I grew up in Central Maryland, the land of Ravens and Orioles, 90% humidity on a good day, and Old Bay Seasoning on your school pizza. Lovely Ohio is the absolute last place I expected to end up, but here I am, and I find I love it even though it lacks an overabundance of blue crabs. My academic and professional passions include singing, editing, running, Biblical feminist theory, and of course, being an RA on Third Miller. During breaks, I return to my new home in Chicago, Illinois.

Favorite thing about Hiram: I feel that my favorite part about Hiram is the relationship that can develop between faculty and students. I believe that at larger institutions you would be unable to foster such friendships with their faculty, but at Hiram this is not so. With such small classes sizes and friendly demeanor casual friendships are easily cultivated. For someone from such a small high-school this was a key factor in my choosing of Hiram.
I originally came from a small high school just north of Hiram which only had fourty-four people in my senior class. When I had first entered Hiram I felt I was destined to enter the field of research and medicine. Having done the PSEO program in high school I had ample time to pick-up a second major, and my choice for that was English. Although as my time at Hiram grew I eventually learned that I did not want to pursue a career in the sciences. Having double-majored I was now only an English major, and found myself enthralled with the field. Only once I was out of the sciences had I been able to dive in-depth. Within this discipline I felt as if I had really found my place in the college, and I eventually began to develop plans for when my time at Hiram is done. I plan on pursuing a master's degree after I graduate in 2014 with hopes of entering the field of higher education.
