How has being an English graduate from Duke University help shape your professional success?

Duke's reputation for quality and academic rigor has always served me well. The quality of my own classroom experience at Duke; the caliber of the libraries and other resources; the teaching experiences I gained as a graduate tutor; the opportunities to present papers at professional meetings (paid for by the Graduate School); the opportunity to develop as an academic leader--in all of these ways Duke has been a blessing to me personally and professionally.
