We have the most outstanding students in the Department of Philosophy. One such student is Karice Davis, a graduating senior.
We caught up with her to talk about why she chose to study Philosophy and her plans for the future.
What was the best part of your experience in the Department of Philosophy?
“The faculty and staff. While I worked here I’ve developed some great bonds and lifelong friendships with these people. I genuinely enjoyed coming in to see everyone. They’re all just great people!
What were some of your favorite Philosophy classes?
“Top Three: Philosophy and the Good Life with Dr. Wilson, Philosophy of Humor with Dr. AI Cohen, and Moral Psychology with Dr. Nahmias. Best three classes I’ve ever taken and the best professors I’ve had in my college career.”
Why did you choose to major in Philosophy?
“I wanted to study something that I genuinely enjoyed. My associate’s degree is in Political Science and studying that was miserable and I only chose it because I thought it help me get into law school. But later on, I figured out that if I’m going to spend all this money and time here, I might as well enjoy it. Philosophy was appealing because I’ve always been a fan of asking the “big questions.” It’s definitely been more than worth it and I plan on continuing my studies independently.”
What are you doing after graduation?
“Right now, I am taking some time off to study for the LSAT. (I’m also trying to find employment in this *wonderful* job market but we’ll see how that all goes, ha.)”
In addition to being an awesome Philosophy major, Karice was also one of our student assistants in the Department of Philosophy. While we are sad to see her go, we wish her all the best!
