Molly Wierman of Wichita, Kan., was one of 38 University of Dallas students to present her “Junior Poet” project. These presentations are the culmination of intensive research and writing on a major English-language poet and are required of all English majors in order to satisfy degree requirements, though students from other majors choose to take the course as well. Wierman’s presentation was on the poetry of T.S. Eliot.
