About Me:

Hey everyone, I am Cathryn. I am going into my 5th year of pharmacy at Butler University. I am also working toward a minor in Science, Technology & Society! In my spare time, I enjoy hanging out with friends and writing. I've been working on NaNoWriMo and am hoping to be published at some point in the near future as well. Most of the time you can catch me studying in the library or browsing the Internet. Oh, and did I mention that I got married last summer?

Science, Technology & Society (STS)

I probably haven’t mentioned this yet, but as of this year, I am pursuing a minor in STS!

I had never heard of the major until this past summer, but it is one of the coolest integrated studies I’ve come across in university. As a writer, I originally wanted to try and get an English minor (it’s impossible with pharmacy unless I’d decided freshman year to do it and did a lot of summer school!). But I was pointed in the direction of STS and fell in love immediately!

Nerd alert: me being excited about STS only further proves that I’m a nerd. And I don’t mean in an “adorkable” way (why did I just use that word). I mean in a “I could spend hours reading scientific articles and dissecting the sentence structure and word choice to see how factual said article is.” Then I would debate the validity and soundness of every argument. Then I would curl up on the floor.

Seriously though, I’m finding STS really interesting. It makes me want to get into science writing sometime down the road. :) (I’m going to take a page from the book of Dr. Vance and get an article published about disease mongering. YEAH!)

I googled STS and this is what I found, also an image that declared that cows are food factories. What am I getting myself into?
