Best Hamline memoryMy year abroad was my most memorable year, but my best on-campus Hamline memory was living in the dorms my freshman year. We had an amazing sense of community. Favorite professorsMy German advisor Kari Richtsmeier tops my 'Best of Hamline' list. Without Kari, there is no way I would have received the Fulbright grant. And my faculty advisor Matt Olson did a fantastic job guiding me through my honors project.
