"After getting my degree in English and creative writing from KU, I went to law school and am now a transactional attorney at a large law firm in Houston. An important part of my job involves drafting complex commercial contracts that govern million- and billion-dollar deals. In a world where the meaning of a key provision can turn on one carefully chosen word or phrase, having a strong background in creative writing and grammar classes has been invaluable for my career."

-Molly Tucker, KU English Class of 2008
