About Our Peer Advisors:
Rimsha Iqbal, Senior, 2013
I’m a senior majoring in English and applying to medical school this year. I chose to major in English while also taking science classes because I liked the balance between the two different areas of study. English classes help me improve my own writing and communication skills, and help me become more open in my everyday life. When I’m not reading, writing, or working on applications, I love playing piano or guitar, singing, being with friends, and traveling. I enjoy the English major and I know that it will help me with anything I decide to do in the future, including medical school. I’m honored to be in this position and I look forward to meeting and talking to my fellow peers.
Elizabeth Lalley, Senior, 2013
Originally from Port Austin, Michigan, I am a senior concentrator in English, also studying creative writing through the Residential College. I eagerly decided to study English after traveling to Maine, during my freshman year, with the New England Literature Program (NELP)—a program that not only exposes students to the works of New England authors, but also helps them see community, place, and landscape as unique “texts” in themselves. From studying the poetry of Robert Frost to teaching my own class on Emily Dickinson’s poetry, NELP really drew me in to English and showed me the possibilities it presents. In addition to peer advising, I am beginning work on a senior thesis, planning to focus on Darwin as a writer and on his revisions of The Origin of Species. Along with a love for literature and writing, I am interested in local food and sustainability, music, and art. It’s exciting to be in the position of a peer advisor, so please come by to talk about classes, schedules, or your favorite poem!
Peer Advisors are located in 3200 Angell Hall
