Hannah Strickland

I never wanted to go to college. I had a good job and a great friend group, and the last few years at public high school had burned me out.

Dr. David Stewart, Professor of History

The most striking feature of Dr. Stewart’s office is how full it is. From the floor to the ceiling, books fill the many-tiered shelves. Biographies, textbooks, and all things history decorate the professor’s workspace, interrupted only by the presence of one golden couch which sits opposite from Dr. Stewart’s chair.
