Liberal Arts Education Prepares Grad for Graduate School Challenges
Dylan Furlano

December 03, 2015

Dylan Furlano '14 left Susquehanna feeling prepared for whatever graduate school can throw her way.

"A liberal arts education truly does produce well-rounded scholars and I am so appreciative for that," says Furlano, who majored in creative writing and economics.

She now works at State Farm during the day and spends her evenings working toward a master's degree in Holocaust and genocide studies from West Chester University. Someday, she hopes to work in international policy or law, furthering human rights issues. Originally a creative writing major, Furlano was encouraged by a professor to add an economics major after taking an elective her first semester. "I encourage all students to seek out faculty members. They are one of the greatest resources available at SU," she says.

Furlano's academic interests didn't stop with her majors-she also minored in Jewish studies, women's studies and diversity studies.

"I found that I had varied interests and was lucky enough that SU's structure allowed me to pursue them all!" she explains. "Seize all opportunities-you never know where they will lead!"
