"This is an individual that defies the norms constantly. Whether it’s dressing up as sexy Guy Fieri, making a foot out of clay or designing shelters with a needle and thread, she is a creative mind we should all look towards."

–Claudia O’Herron

Katy KeenanWhat is your major and year of study? I'm majoring in EPOD and I plan to graduate in May 2021

Where are you from? Memphis, TN

What inspired you to come to ENVD when you were choosing your school? The open-ended nature of design studies (now EPOD) and the focus on sustainability stood out to me.

What do you miss the most about being in person on campus and ENVD? I miss the sense of community and running into friends unexpectedly!

What has been one of your favorite memories so far this semester? I don't have a specific memory, but I'm doing scenic design for the virtual show She Kills Monsters with the theatre department and it's been so much fun! Getting to go to campus and work in the shop for that has been the highlight of my semester.

If you could say or share anything to all of your ENVD peers, classmates and friends, what would you say? Vote!

What’s your go-to, non-Zoom activity when you get to take a break from your screens? Painting and making silly art!
