Introducing Our Incoming History Majors: Amanda Brogan
I chose to study history because it has always been my favorite subject. I always enjoyed learning about it asn I’m nt exactly sure why. All of my friends thought it was boring but I just like learning the different sides to the stories. There is always something a winner and a loser and there is always two different stories. I feel like a detective sometimes going over all the “evidence” leading up to a war or a revolution. I specifically enjoy learning from the Roaring Twenties to Post-WWII. My fascination with WWII grew even more when I went on a WWII Europe trip and visited Germany, Luxemburg, France, Belgium and London. I have always wanted to be a History teacher so I plan to pursue a career in History and Education.
I came to St. Bonaventure University because it was the first school that I liked. I never leave home, my family or my dog. I knew I would just have to pick somewhere because I needed to go to college to become a teacher. I still feel that way sometimes but St. Bonaventure is very homey, it makes everything more comfortable.
