- Majors, MinorsSociology and History, Urban Education & African and African American Studies
Gillian’s passion for social justice and activism led her to double major in history and sociology; she is also minoring in both urban education and African and African American Studies. After her first urban education course, she says, “a better understanding of social institutions grounded in historic interactions led me to pursue history and sociology.” Gillian is also involved with many activities and student organizations on campus. She is a member of Alpha Sigma Nu, the national Jesuit honor society, and Kappa Delta Pi, an international honor society in education. The student from South Brunswick, N.J., says her favorite thing about Loyola is working as a tutor in the Writing Center and at The Study. “Tutoring provides me with the opportunity to meet new people and create relationships with students I likely wouldn’t have crossed paths with otherwise.” Gillian plans to pursue a Master of Arts in Teaching from Loyola to teach at a public school in Baltimore—and ultimately hopes to work in public policy to enact social change.
