Hanna Alwine ’26

Hi guys I'm Hanna (with or without the h -- at the end, the one at the beginning is non-negotiable.) I'm from Carlisle, Pennsylvania (which is near Harrisburg, oh and also kind of close to Hershey, yes the chocolate company, and if that still doesn't place it for you its also halfway between Pittsburgh and Philly.) I'm majoring in Comparative Literature, minoring in French. I'd like to add something else into the mix, but am not sure what yet. Maybe Art History? Maybe Creative Writing? Maybe I'll go crazy and try to double major in Comp Lit and Biology? (This is unlikely.) 

On campus I can be found working at Slow Train or the Local, reading by the Finney Chapel koi pond, or staring dejectedly at the monstrosity that is MUDD Library. 

Off campus I spend a lot of my time biking and hiking – Carlisle sits on a nice stretch of the Appalachian Trail – playing with my cats, and finding ways to write in the sun. I also love to travel when I can – bus trips between PA and OH have become one of my favorite pastimes. I am convinced that I’d be happy if I could spend the rest of my life listening to music and staring out a moving car window.

Can't live with them, can't live without them. (Why I'm glad I'm at Oberlin and you might be too?)
