Katy Dowling '15

Hi there! My name is Katy Dowling and I'm looking forward to being one of the IMES UDRs this year. I'm currently a junior majoring in IMES and Politics with a minor in Religious Studies. I'm from Warwick, New York (think apple orchards, not the city!) and I'm currently working in at the Crown Center for Middle Eastern Studies. In my not-so-free time, I'm Fundraising Chair for the crew team, secretary of Russian Club, and I help tutor kids in Arabic! If you need me you you can always find me. Hope you're as excited as I am for this year!
