Senior Allegheny College Student to Attend Harvard University’s Graduate School of Education
Allegheny College student Faythe Schulte ’23 is joining many Allegheny alumni who have attended top-tier graduate programs. This fall, Schulte will travel to Boston to pursue a Master of Education at Harvard University.
“My past four years at Allegheny have truly shaped me to be who I am today,” says Schulte, who majored in French and environmental science and sustainability (ESS). “At Allegheny, I have explored all of my academic areas of interest while building connections with Allegheny faculty, staff, students, and Meadville community members. One day I would like to pay forward their kindness and dedication.”
As a member of the Allegheny community, Schulte has taken every opportunity to share her passion for French by teaching at First District Elementary School and tutoring others in the language. She has also been a teaching assistant for the Global Citizens Scholars program, an intern at the Meadville Market House, and a guide for the Office of Admissions.
Associate Professor of French Briana Lewis notes that Schulte is a fantastic student in the French program and an outstanding community member.
“She has a knack for finding the people and groups that make a place what it is and leaving them better than she found them. Her presence has made [Allegheny College] better,” says Lewis.
Director of Community Engaged Learning, Michael Williams ’98, says Schulte has made the most of her opportunities at Allegheny.
“Faythe has gotten involved, striven for excellence, offered her gifts and presence — I am thrilled that she has the opportunity to attend Harvard University and continue her personal and professional development,” says Williams.
After graduating with her master’s, Schulte plans to volunteer at the 2024 Summer Olympics in France, teach English abroad, and pursue a Ph.D. to become a professor.
“The opportunity to have different roles at Allegheny, along with the constant support of my professors, instilled the confidence in me that I could continue my education at Harvard University,” says Schulte.
