Meet the New UHP Blog Contributor – Carly

10 Mar

Hello world!

I’m Carly Gibbs, one of the new student writers for the UHP blog, and I’m following in Jenna’s footsteps with a little “about me” post. I’ve lived in a small town known as Munster, Indiana for almost my entire life (it’s an interesting conversation piece at GW, where I’ve met exactly one other person from Indiana and several people who seemed to think I lived near Colorado). I have a general idea of what I want to do with my life-which, at the moment, consists of majoring in History and possibly going on to law school. I might also declare a second major in Political Science and a minor in Biology if I ever get around to filling out certain forms. More importantly to all of you, I’m a UHP student (and currently enrolled in a whopping TWO Honors classes at the moment) and know what it’s like to be a part of the GW Honors Program.

I’ve lived in Honors Housing for both my years here (and will definitely miss it next year!), taken Honors classes, visited the Honors advisers, and taken advantage of free food in the Honors building. Since I’ve experienced a lot (of mostly good things) as a student in the Honors program, I figured I might as well do my part to relay to all of you out there what life can be like as an Honors student at GW. That’s my job now, to use my writing powers and blogging privilege for good and write exciting tales detailing some of the things that happen here at the GW Honors Program. Huzzah!

Note: I desperately searched for a decent picture of myself to post and came up with this. I’m not normally this shifty-looking (ask any of my friends), but look at the background. Jefferson Memorial! Tidal Basin! DC!

    Hi, Carly. Thanks for this terrific posting. I took the liberty of editing so that “blog contributor” replaced what had been “blog contributor.” You’re the second person (and in the Honors Program, to boot) to use the expression “Huzzah”. I think it’s my new favorite word, so thanks for that too! Maria Frawley

      oops….meant that “blog contributor” replaced what had been, inexplicably but tantalizingly, “blob contributor”!
