The College of Liberal Arts is pleased to announce the 2013-14 Student Fellows.

Each year, the College selects a handful of students to represent the University, the College, and their respective academic departments. Students are nominated by department chairs and chosen by the associate dean of the College. Typically seniors, Student Fellows have dynamic backgrounds and stellar academic records. They serve as student ambassadors during the open houses for prospective students, describing their experiences to and answering questions from students and their parents. Other responsibilities might include meeting with alumni, donors to the College, or lawmakers. This honor is intended to recognize fine achievement at UNH and provide a way for students to serve the University in their final year of study.

This year’s Student Fellows are:

  • Caitlin Rose Duttry, an English literature and women’s studies double major. From Weymouth, MA, Caitlin is passionate about social justice issues and feminist activism. She is an executive officer in both Sigma Tau Delta, the International English Honor Society, and UNH VOX, Voices for Planned Parenthood. She is a volunteer for the Sexual Harassment and Rape Prevention Program (SHARPP) and an intern at the Freedom Café.
  • Molly Foye, a Spanish and anthropology double major from Clinton, NY. In addition to excelling in her studies, Molly has taken on leadership roles as a resident assistant in SERC C residence hall, a Safe Zones facilitator, and a peer advisor at the University Advising and Career Center.

With an interest in psychology, Brianna won a summer fellowship two years ago which allowed her to conduct her own psychology research.
