Art & Art History

Lia Kane

Hey Guys! My name is Lia! I’m a senior art history major, and the art and art history peer advisor for the 2020-2021 school year. I’ve been in the major since the beginning of my sophomore year, and am really passionate about art history! I’m originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico but am now living in Highland Park for my socially-distant senior year. In my free time I love to run, hike, read, and hangout with my roommates. This year is going to be hard for all of us, especially since we can’t be together on campus. But I’m here for you!

Stop by my virtual office hours Monday and Wednesday, 5-7 pm, or email me at lkane@oxy.edu if you have any questions about classes, or just want to chat. :)

Emma Pond

Hi, my name is Emma!

I’m a senior Economics major with a Computer Science minor, and I am the peer subject advisor for Economics! Currently, I’m at home in the Bay Area, but I’m still staying involved with campus through clubs and organizations. Outside of school, I love to hike and play with my dogs! If you’re stuck on a problem set, confused about an exam topic, or just want to talk about Economics, I would LOVE for you to come by during my drop-in hours, which are Tuesdays from 1:10-3:10pm, and Thursdays from 5-7pm (Pacific). Looking forward to meeting you!

Clair Frohling

 

Hi! My name is Claire and I’m a junior at Oxy majoring in Econ, and minoring in Art History. Within Econ, I am primarily interested in Economic development and research. Some fun facts about me are that I lived in Hong Kong for eight years and I love to cook! My hours this semester are Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 pm to 6 pm PST. I am currently taking Econ 251, and I have taken Econ courses 101, 102, 250, 320, and 309, so feel free to ask me any questions about those classes. I also really enjoy math, so I am happy to help with any math-related Econ questions!

Media Arts and Culture

Mimi Miyamoto

Hello Media Arts and Culture Students!

My name is Mimi and I’m a senior Media Arts and Culture student here at Oxy. I’m the MAC peer adviser for the fall. I know this time is difficult, as the major heavily relies on group work and one-on-one interactions. If you have any questions about anything or just want to bond with another fellow MAC student, I’d love to connect with you :)

Here are some of the things I can help you with:

  • discuss readings/screenings for better comprehension
  • help prepare for presentations
  • be a sounding board for project ideas
  • take a look at any edits/screenplays for feedback
  • any other technical questions

Join me on Zoom during my office hours, from 3-5pm Mondays, 10:30am-12:30pm Fridays Pacific Time.

Or, email me at nmiyamoto@oxy.edu. See ya soon!
