Amanda Hodes, CAS/BA '20
I had invaluable support from my faculty mentors and the Office of Merit Awards.
While at AU, Amanda has served as a volunteer juror for the Scholastic Writing Awards, editor for American Literary, and DJ for WAMU. Aside from her academic pursuits, Amanda is also a classically trained guitarist. She received guidance on her application from Liz Veatch, a consultant to the Office of Merit Awards.
