A Unique Privilege

Faculty English

I believe it is a privilege to work with our young women and to see them grow into confident, accomplished pre-professionals—and to play even a small part in that growth.

William's Story

I believe it is a privilege to work with our young women and to see them grow into confident, accomplished pre-professionals—and to play even a small part in that growth.

At Notre Dame we, the faculty, get to know our students well through our small classes, and often through teaching students in more than one course. Programs like Nancy Kreiter Student Research Day encourage students and faculty to take that extra step beyond the classroom into the public presentation of their research. In the English department, some students may choose to work with a professor as a teaching assistant, while others pursue writing or research under the guidance of the faculty.

Notre Dame helped me discover my passion for storytelling through the writing courses I have taken…My experience at NDMU has not only helped me sharpen my writing and communication skills but it has given me the confidence boost I needed to believe in my ability to tell stories. I look forward to traveling to new places, meeting interesting people, feeling the adrenaline rush of a buzzing newsroom, and developing my voice as a journalist.

A Library for Change

Alum, NDMU Class of 2018 English, Communication Arts, Women's Studies
Micah Castelo and Lorelie Elaine Soriano submitted one of the 120 winning projects under the Davis Projects for Peace foundation. They have been awarded $10,000 each for the construction of the first official library of the Caibiran Central School in the city of Caibiran located in the eastern Visayas region of the Philippines. “From the start,” Castelo says “we knew that we wanted to work on a project in the Philippines because we are both Filipina.” Castelo didn’t have to reach very far to find motivation, “when I was still in the Philippines, my parents enrolled me in a private school because the public schools did not have enough resources to ensure each child succeeds. I see this award as a privilege that I have been granted. I want to use this privilege to help those children in need…They deserve this just as much as anyone else.”

What's Next: University of Baltimore School of Law

Alum, NDMU Class of 2017 English
My English major involved a lot of critical thinking and how to build the well-structured argument, something that is incredibly important in law. Additionally, my two minors in Philosophy and Communication Arts enabled me to be specific about the area that I want to specialize in - Intellectual Property.
