Muriel Smith, '13
Muriel Smith, a senior from Lima, Ohio, is double-majoring in History and Child and Family Studies, with a double minor in Political Science and Sociology. She chose Muskingum because of the beautiful scenery, small-town feel, friendliness of students during her visits, and the promise of small class sizes that would allow her to get to know her professors.
Smith stays busy as a Head Resident Assistant (HRA) in Memorial Hall, a member of the Board of Trustees Student Committee, member of two academic honoraries, and Treasurer and Vice President of College Republicans. She also attends Chapel services. Smith says, “I never imagined that college would be so rewarding and that I would grow so much. I fully believe that my experiences at Muskingum have fostered this growth.”
Smith has had numerous unique experiences as a Muskingum student: Helping to create Muskingum’s 175th Anniversary Exhibit, and presenting the exhibit to the Board of Trustees; working as HRA; and serving as student editor of a faculty member’s social gerontology textbook, and writing one of the modules within the text, among others.
