Kathleen Ferns

Hi, I'm Kathleen, and I'm a fourth-year history major. I have loved every moment of studying history at Queen's! I'm particularly interested in American history and religious history, but I love learning about just about any time period. In my spare time, I enjoy playing music and being outside in nature. I'm really excited to help out with PATH this year because I've had a lot of experience trying to make decisions and changing my mind about my studies over the course of my undergrad. I hope to be able to show everyone what a great program History is! ​

Michael Romagnuolo

Hello! My name is Michael Romagnuolo and I am going into my fourth year as a History major and Religious Studies minor. I am stoked to be a member of PATH this year and can't wait to share the knowledge and incredible experiences that I have gained from my History degree here at Queen's. This past summer I wrote the LSAT as I continue to work towards pursuing a career in law. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and watching sports.

Emily Viau

Hey! My name is Emily and I’m in my third year majoring in History and minoring in French Studies. During my first year at Queen’s, I took the course “Canada and the World,” which was a great introduction to what History lectures would be like in future years and covered relevant topics in Canadian history and applied them to current Canadian issues in the present. When I’m not studying, I enjoy dancing, painting and staying up to date on the latest fashion and music trends. After my undergrad, my plan is to go to Teacher’s College so I can later teach high school History.

Sarah Lewis

Hi, my name is Sarah! I am a 3rd year History major and Political Studies minor. In first year, I really enjoyed my History courses and decided to major in it. HIST 121 Intellectual Origins and HIST 122 Making of the Modern World were my favourite courses in first year. I am looking forward to taking my upper year seminar courses this year.  In my spare time, I enjoy reading and I am very interested in fashion. I am also on the Oxfam executive here at Queen's.  I am currently exploring the many options that I have for my History degree following my four years at Queen's.
