Too many qualities about SLU appealed to me in high school just as strongly as they do now. I studied abroad in Vienna, Austria in the spring of my junior year and am currently working on my honors project with Peter Bailey about how post-WWII American and German writers re-defined the concept of insanity after experiencing the most insane period in world history and the specific art forms their works utilized to reconcile darker depths of reality that before the war had been unimaginable. I plan on attending graduate school next year to continue literary studies
