~From English Department Communications Intern Beth Campbell

Kara can only be described as colorful. When I first met her, she beamed a terrific smile at me and, before I could finish asking her name, launched into how nice it was to meet a new friend. I began to ask her questions about her major and what she liked about Eddy Hall. She was more than willing to talk, telling me stories of her own experience as an English major and as a writer.



What’s your name? Your major? When do you expect to graduate?
Kara Zehner. I’m studying English Education, and I expect to graduate in 2018.

How do you spend most of your time in Eddy Hall?
I’m usually here going to class and office hours. All of my professors are here.

Favorite moment in Eddy Hall?
That would have to be hanging out with one of my professors and talking about Plato and Literary Theory.

Favorite English class or teacher?
I loved my LGBT Literature. That’s not something that’s discussed a lot.

Describe Eddy Hall in one word.

What’s your favorite book, poem, quote, lyric, genre?
“I must be a mermaid… I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living. ”

Who is your favorite author?
Nick Miller.

If you were to give advice to incoming CSU English majors, what would it be?
Read. Or try to. Falling behind in the reading can really suck in the long run.

What’s your biggest goal, priority right now?
Just getting through this year.

Are you working on any projects? If so, what?
I am a co-host for KCSU. My friend and I have a show on Fridays from 9-11 am called the Space Babez from Earth. It is a lot of fun!
