Once again we return to our Meet and Greet Series to introduce another member of the newest cohort. Mariel Caputo is working on her Masters degree here at Lehigh, and answered a few questions so that we could get to know her a little better!
Mareesa Miles: Hello!
MM: Tell us about yourself!
Mariel Caputo: I received my B.A. from Drew University, where I majored in English and minored in Italian. My honors thesis focused on single women in the novels of Charlotte and Anne Brontë
MM: Why did you choose Lehigh?
MC: I chose Lehigh because I wanted to be part of a department that emphasizes the larger social importance of literary studies.
MM: What is your favorite book outside your field of study?
MC: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
MM: What are you most looking forward to this year?
MC: I’m looking forward to broadening my scope, as well as delving deeper into my areas of interest.
Stick around for more Meet and Greet posts coming next week and make sure to say hello to Mariel when you see her around!
