Recently Adam Gray had the opportunity to speak with Simmons College's provost, Dr. Katie Conboy. In July 2013 Dr. Conboy came to Simmons from Stonehill College where she has worked for the past 25 years. She holds a B.A. in English from the University of Kansas and a Ph.D. in English literature from the University of Notre Dame. Adam was able to ask Dr. Conboy some questions to get to know her a little better and see if she had any advice for students during the spring semester.
What is your favorite quote?
"Something is rotten in the state of Denmark" from Hamlet. I am especially fond of this quote when I come home and smell something rotten in my refrigerator. Generally that means I have been spending too much time at Simmons and not enough at home.
What is your favorite college memory?
During my senior year I was able to travel to England for a study abroad experience. I made some amazing memories and encourage everyone who has the chance to go abroad. This experience helped expand my horizons and experience a whole new world.
