English and Creative Writing

Nadia Vinogradova ’13

Nadia Vinogradova ’13 accepted one of only two spots in Northwestern University’s PhD program for Slavic Literature. For her, it is a dream come true. Vinogradova double majored in English writing and chemistry as a student at Lake Forest College. Here, that is not such an unlikely coupling.

About the English professors:

Associate Professor of English Carla Arnell introduced her to Northwestern University’s Professor Gary Saul Morson and suggested that she apply for the program.

“It has shown to be a serendipitous suggestion,” Vinogradova said.

On the overall Lake Forest experience:

“I think only in a liberal arts college could I have received such personal attention and been allowed to major in such different disciplines,” Vinogradova said.

“The chemistry and English majors complemented each other well, although scheduling required some work (mainly around labs). My advisors and the departments were flexible and helped me to navigate my two majors.”
