Liam Fuller ’17

My experience at Dickinson has helped mold me into a well-rounded person. Through different extracurricular activities and social initiatives, I have found a leadership potential within me that I did not know existed before. I have learned how to be a more empathetic person, how to conduct open and reciprocal conversation, and the importance of keeping myself informed and updated on current events and how they affect me and the people around me.

After taking French throughout high school, I came to Dickinson knowing I wanted to do something in that direction but, I found my true passion taking my first women’s & gender studies class. The relationship between my two concentrations has allowed me to broaden my horizons, to employ social theory in my French classes and to utilize concepts from French gender theorists in my women’s & gender studies classes. These two fields allowed me to excel at a year in Toulouse, France, where I accomplished an internship, community service, and a research project. While I had a very formative experience in France, it fortified my love for Dickinson and I cannot wait to hit the ground running this year back at my home away from home.

My passion for academics, my extracurricular activities, and the wonderful people I’ve met, students, faculty, and staff alike, are what get me out of bed in the morning. At Dickinson, I know that I have a voice and that I have a support network that is hard to duplicate. I’ve met people from many different walks of life here who have taught me about their own experiences and have helped form my own.

If you have any questions about French, women’s & gender studies, or LGBTQ+ life at Dickinson, please, do not hesitate to contact me at fullerl@dickinson.edu. Hope to see you here in person one day.
