  •  Meet the Bloggers: Student Cameron Tow

    Thursday, Mar. 24, 2011

    Cameron Tow is a senior psychology major at Santa Clara University.

    Following the three most frighteningly short years of my life, I now find myself as a senior at Santa Clara University, unwilling to accept that my undergraduate career is almost over. After browsing the aisles of academia for what felt like all of twenty minutes, I have finally settled on psychology as a major. Chief among my limited accomplishments so far has been helping to found the Lambda Gamma chapter of the Sigma Chi fraternity, of which I am a member of the inaugural Alpha class. I have lived in three places throughout my life: New York, where my family now lives, Australia, where I spent a few of the most impressionable years of my life (and brought back a gnarly accent to prove it, which I have unfortunately since lost), and California, where I now go to school and hope to build my adult life. My tentative plan is to get some form of graduate degree and then hopefully a job.

     

  •  Meet the Bloggers: Parent Miriam Schulman

    Thursday, Mar. 24, 2011

    Ethics Center Communications Director Miriam Schulman is also the parent of a college junior and a recent graduate.

    Like many parents of college students today, I am a boomer. I entered college myself--Brandeis University--in 1969, the year of the moonwalk, Woodstock, and the national student strike. In other words, I’m well aware that the current generation did not invent sex, drugs, and rock and roll. I’ve always had an interest in ethics, particularly social justice. Right out of college, I joined Volunteers in Service to America (the domestic Peace Corps), which matured into my first job as the editor of a community newspaper. Along the way, I picked up a master’s in journalism from Columbia University and then went on for a master’s in creative writing from Stanford. I’ve been lucky to be able to put my skills and interests together as the communications director of the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University, where I have also taught in the Communication Department.

  •  Meet the Bloggers: Student Deepti Shenoy

    Wednesday, Mar. 23, 2011

    Currently a law student at University of Pennsylvania, Deepti Shenoy wrote her responses when she was a senior at Santa Clara University.

    In college, I was constantly discovering new passions I couldn’t resist pursuing. Triple majoring in History, Religious Studies and Women and Gender Studies definitely kept me on my toes, and my various academic and nonacademic activities, including six classes every quarter, working as peer educator in a yearlong Ethics and Globalization class, becoming involved in research with my professors, various art projects, learning cooking, and vegetable gardening made me feel a bit like a professional juggler. It was a challenge, and at times I had my parents pulling their hair out in frustration, but what’s life without a little excitement? At least, that’s what I keep telling myself, since it doesn’t look like things will be slowing down anytime soon.

  •  Meet the Bloggers: Student Intern Alicia Rangel

    Tuesday, Mar. 22, 2011

    As The Big Q's student intern, Alicia Rangel manages the project Facebook page and video contest.

    Originally from San Jose, CA, I decided to keep it local when it came to college and I am a senior at Santa Clara University. My major is management, and I also have a minor in music. I hope to work for a major tech company, a start–up non-profit, or some happy mix of the two when I graduate. I would also love to continue my other interests post–graduation, which include music, theater, and art.
