Welcome back to our Member Spotlight series! We’ll be featuring members of our chapter for the rest of the 2020-2021 school year to help us all stay connected while socially distancing.
This week’s Member Spotlight is Marley Arenstein!
Marley is a senior majoring in English Publishing Studies and minoring in Communication Mass Media and European Studies. She is from Ohio and says one of the main reasons she decided to study at Illinois State was because of the amazing publishing program. Some of her favorite activities include reading, watching Netflix, thrifting/antiquing, and traveling (when not in a global pandemic). She was inducted in Fall 2019 and is looking forward to bonding and working together with everyone in Sigma Tau Delta at Illinois State University!
Marley says one of her biggest achievements this year was studying abroad at the University of Leicester in Leicester, England. Even though she was only there two short months due to the pandemic, she says she was able to learn more about a different culture and broaden her educational and mental understandings of life outside of the United States. She also was able to make a few YouTube videos for ISU’s Study Abroad Office about her time abroad and what she learned while she was there. You can check out Marley’s videos with the following links:

This year Marley also secured an internship at Illinois State University’s student newspaper—The Vidette—where she works as a copy editor. She was also reelected to ISU’s creative arts journal—Euphemism—as the submissions coordinator received an editors’ choice award for one of my art/media submissions to Euphemism this semester.
