My name is Monica Hogan. I’m a senior here at Duke and was born ‘n raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Although I am still in denial about the reality of graduating this spring, I am finishing up my double majors in Biology and Dance, along with a Markets and Management Certificate.
I’m a hopeless dance addict, and I have been training in styles ranging from ballet to jazz to contemporary since the age of 2. One of the main reasons I chose to come to Duke was due to the university’s strong support of interdisciplinary studies – one minute I can be immersed in a biology lab, and the next I can be at barre in the Ark Dance Studio. I have been able to pursue multiple passions here, and it keeps me happy, healthy, and balanced, both as a student and an artist!
On campus, you can usually spot me as the girl cruising around on the teal bike. In my free time, I love biking and exploring around the city of Durham, hiking, photography, and spending time with friends.
I hope that you enjoy this blog as it begins to chronicle my last year here! I am more than happy to answer questions and start dialogue with you all, so please feel free to comment and say hello!
