Hello! I'm Annie Wake a senior here at DePauw University. I hail from the wonderful state of Kansas, and grew up in Shawnee Mission, just outside of Kansas City. Before arriving in Greencastle, I had an extraordinary opportunity to re-experience my senior year aboard in Belgium, in French, as a Rotary Exchange Student. Just six weeks after landing back on American soil I began my career as a DePauw student. Every day at DePauw is a new experience, but there is a rhythm to life as well.
A Glimpse of My DePauw Experience:
Most days are spent in North Quad, bouncing between Asbury and Harrison Halls working towards my History major or Anthropology and Political Science minors. Many an afternoon is spent attending multiple club meetings, such as Phi Alpha Theta Historical Honors Society or tutoring at local elementary and high schools through Gobin Methodist. After classes, I head back to my sorority house to hang out and catch up with friends and relax before dinner. Some nights are spent at the Roy O. Library cranking out papers or writing thank you notes for internships in Washington D.C. And don’t forget the weekends, when campus activities abound, from football games to philanthropy events. Back to work on Monday, I have the chance to give back to DePauw by working as a Senior Intern in the Admission Office. And though my calendar is constantly booked, there’s always time to catch-up with friends over a cup of coffee. Looking to graduation in a few short months, I’m reminded how fast time flies at DePauw.
