Maria Rossini is a rising senior English major with a concentration in Latin at the University of Dallas. She is a Student Representative of the Southwestern Region of Sigma Tau Delta and is Vice President of her Sigma Tau Delta chapter on campus. Though the Modernists have her heart (especially Eliot, Woolf, and Faulkner), she has recently been making her foray into contemporary literature (such as McCarthy, Ishiguro, and Robinson) and loving it. She also has an interest in drama and is now editor-in-chief of a dramaturgical magazine on her campus.
