This video features Erin Sawatzky (CMU ’14) at With Gratitude, April 26, 2014. With Gratitude is a CMU graduation weekend event at which class members share their experiences through spoken word or musical performance. The event brings together family members, graduates, students, faculty, and staff, and affords graduates a valuable opportunity to showcase what their studies have meant to them.
Here, Erin extolls her interdisciplinary education for the way it shook her certainty, helped her un-learn things poorly or incompletely apprehended before, and provoked her best scholarship by offering her ever new, bigger, subtler and more daringly real-world questions to wrestle with.
Bachelor of Arts, 3 Year
Major: Social Science
