Maddy Burds is a senior Biology major from Glenview, IL. She discovered DePauw during her pursuit to play field hockey in college but she chose DePauw in the end because she could pursue multiple passions. Her favorite thing about attending DePauw is the people!
She just returned to campus after a semester abroad in Brisbane, Australia. On campus, she is a member of the field hockey team, a Best Buddy to a Greencastle community member, on the executive committee of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, chairs the Red Cross Blood Drives on campus, and is an active member of Kappa Alpha Theta. She also works at the campus smoothie bar and Crickets, a boutique in downtown Greencastle.
After DePauw she hopes to attend medical school after taking a year off. During her year off she will be working as an EMT in an emergency room near home. She obtained her EMT certification on campus as a winter term class offered by DePauw. Including that EMT course, she attributes her preparedness for life after college to the unique and vast out of classroom experiences that DePauw has given her.
