About Our Peer Advisors:

Danielle Colburn

Hailey Middlebrook

Danielle Colburn is a junior from Grand Rapids, Michigan. She is studying English and pursuing a Minor in Business. When she’s not in class, she spends her time as a copy editor for both the Michigan Daily and the Oleander Review. She also works as a co-Editor- in-Chief for the Fortnight Literary Press. She spent the past spring term in New Hampshire at the New England Literature Program with 39 other students. She is passionate about all things English and can’t wait to use this opportunity to share that passion. As an advisor, Danielle hopes to help other students determine how the English department can benefit them and aid them in achieving future goals. She hopes to express her enthusiasm for the English department and guide students in finding their place within it. One of the best things about the English major, in Danielle’s opinion, is that the options for using it out in the real world are as varied as the interests of the students within the department.

She spent this past spring term in New Hampshire at NELP (New England Literature Program). She loves working with youth populations, having spent three summers as a camp counselor and last year facilitating Arts Workshops for incarcerated adolescents. She hopes to help other undergrads to find and create fulfilling paths through the English major, and demonstrate the ways in which studying English inspires and excites.

In her free time she likes spending time outside, drinking too much coffee and binge-watching Broad City.
