Jennifer Ransom Rice - Master's: Journalism, 2006
To finish what I started in 1993 – by earning a degree from The University of Texas – has been one of my greatest accomplishments. To follow in my dad’s footsteps as a second generation longhorn, and to push myself to achieve an advanced degree for purely personal reasons, rather than professional ones, is something of which I am very proud. I have a deep and abiding love for this university, and am so happy to be a part of a community of graduates who raise the intellectual bar in our state, nation, and around the globe. And now, to see my nephew growing up with a desire to attend UT, and a passion for learning that can only be satisfied there, brings the experience full circle.
