Margaret C. Olin

After declaring her English major in fall 2018, Maggie Olin immediately found the English Department to be the “right place for me.”

Even before declaring her English major, Maggie was writing for a comedy show on IUP-TV to which she continues to be an active contributor.  

Maggie has also applied her English skills to an on-campus position, editing and designing the Advisor Advocate for the Center for Teaching Excellence, and has won second place in last spring’s undergraduate English awards competition for short fiction.

In addition to these achievements, Maggie has been recognized by the American Association of University Women with a scholarship for being a prolific student in Women’s and Gender Studies.

This fall, Maggie is studying abroad in England.

She hopes to continue thriving in the English Department while also working on her budding comedy career on IUP-TV.
