The following comes from former undergraduate Julian Rome who continues to be an exemplary student.

I am very happy to say that I was awarded a Rackham Merit Fellowship from the University of Michigan, as well as the Alfred M. Wolfe Fellowship from Phi Kappa Phi honors society.

At Michigan, I am in the Program for Ancient Philosophy, meaning that I am working towards an MA in Greek and PhD in Philosophy. I think that this is an excellent program for my research interests, as I am increasingly interested in the various ways in which literature and literary elements function in Plato’s dialogues. I completed the Greek Intensive Course at Berkeley over the summer, which allowed me to begin this fall with Greek language and literature courses (in addition to philosophy seminars, of course).

I cannot say enough just how grateful I am to the Philosophy Department at Memphis for preparing me for this new program of study.

Congratulations Julian!
