Blayne Roach | Religious Studies, Physiology, Biochemistry: The College of Humanities has given me a chance to see and better understand our purpose and interactions as humans in our world. The Donna Swaim Travel Award granted me the opportunity to start my worldly expedition in Europe and study the history of Christianity.
