Stepping-stones: Making the next move to graduate school
« on: May 11, 2019, 09:08:02 AM »
The content below is from an article, Stepping-stones: Making the next move to graduate school, on the Georgia College web site.

Our love and congratulations go out to Granddaughter Brooke ( ZBrookester) Judie as she continues to amaze with her journey towards excellence in her education. 
We love you Brooke!  :heart:

While graduation marks the beginning of many Georgia College students’ careers, for some, it serves as a stepping-stone to their next big journey. Three students are taking the knowledge they gleaned from their undergraduate experience and going on to graduate school to pursue opportunities in higher education, STEM and leading in the non-profit world.

Senior Brooke Judie has spent much of her time in college thinking about how other people think.

She’s a philosophy and liberal studies major, concentrating in culture, religion, and society. But, it wasn’t until a professor mentioned her strength in writing could be used in philosophy, that Judie dove head first into the subject. Her first foray into philosophy was sitting in on Assistant Professor Dr. Jameliah Shorter’s class.

“I was trying to figure out what I would do with a liberal studies major. I saw her teaching philosophy, and it just changed my whole perspective,” said Judie. “She spoke a lot about how, in order to get context for these people’s ideas, we need to look at anthropology and history. It was a turning point for me, because I realized that this is what I could do with my major—I could teach.”

In the summer of 2018, Judie was selected for two summer programs at Penn State: Cultivating Underrepresented Students in Philosophy (CUSP) and Philosophy in an Inclusive Key Summer Institute (PIKSI.). 

“I was always interested in going to graduate school, but I never had the sort of experience that I did at CUSP,” she said. “They taught us a lot about applying, how to fill out applications, and how to negotiate for more money.”

In the program, Judie was also able to sit in on a graduate student, listening to them defend their dissertation. It further enflamed an already smoldering fire in Judie to go on to pursue her graduate degree—at none other than Penn State. 

Judie applied and was recently accepted to the philosophy Ph.D. program at Penn State, where she’ll begin fall 2019. Ultimately, Judie wants to teach philosophy at the college-level and continue research.

“I want to become a professor—I had made my mind up about that the first time I sat in Dr. Shorter’s class,” said Judie. “Hopefully, I can inspire other students like the professors in the Department of Philosophy and Liberal Studies have inspired me.”
