Rachel Blume Accepted into Top MLIS Program

Rachel Blume, English literature & new media major, was notified in March 2014 she'd been accepted into the University of Washington's MLIS program, one of the top three library and information studies programs in the United States according to US News & World Report.

"I couldn't have done it without all #elnm professors and students!" Rachel tweeted. Like all ELNM students at Marylhurst University, Rachel is highly engaged in the digital sphere. Her creative writing is showcased on her blog, aptly titled TheBlumeBlog, and she's active on Twitter and Pinterest, where she is a frequent contributor to the English department's Digital Shakespeare board.

When asked how her Marylhurst experience prepared her for graduate school, she said:

"My teachers and advisors have been there for me every step of the way. In the course of a mere two years I have gone from a mediocre writer to an expert in literary analysis and research. Not only that, but I have discovered a world within the digital realm that I never knew existed, filled with expansive collaborations and ever-evolving literary platforms. I am confident that when I get to graduate school, not only will I keep up, I also know that I will bring something new to the table."

Rachel is on track to graduate with a BA in English Literature & New Media in August 2014.
