3 WORDS TO DESCRIBE REED

Tough
Stimulating
Worthwhile

THESIS TITLE

“Two Critiques of Standing Doctrine” (or “Why do the judges make the decisions that they do and why do those decisions sometimes feel really weird?”)

3 BOOKS TO TAKE INTO THE WIDER WORLD

Shelley’s Frankenstein
(junior year)—thoughtful, interesting, intense

Rawls’ Justice as Fairness
(sophomore year)—first phil text read seriously, has sentimental value, ideas that I want to engage with closely

Aristotle’s Nichomachean Ethics
(freshman year)—one text to bring to an island and read a passage and contemplate it for an hour

Writing my senior thesis pushed me intellectually and emotionally, and working closely with faculty on an intense year-long project was a rewarding experience. But I know this kind of resource-intensive educational model is not sustainable on its own.
That’s why I’m asking you to consider whether giving to Reed is important to you, to take that idea seriously. Because that’s what Reedies do: we take ideas seriously.
