Patricia Bottcher  | Senior Publishing Coordinator | Graduated in 2001

I majored in English at SUNY Geneseo because I loved literature and language as a way of connecting people and transcending barriers. I considered other majors (those traditionally considered to lead to more lucrative career paths), but my passion and interest--as well as the brilliance and talent of the English department professors--made it impossible for me to declare, and commit to, another major. I have never been happier to have made that choice.

Alanna Smith  | Assistant Editor at Marvel Comics | Graduated in 2012

At Geneseo, I majored in English (creative writing path) with a minor in studio art. I also worked as a writer, cartoonist, and editor at the Lamron.

I'm a writer in my free time, and since graduating my plays have been produced three times and I also had a short film produced through a Tongal contest. I'm currently working on a YA fantasy novel and another play.
