Palavi Ahuja

Specialized - UHP

Palavi Ahuja is a junior majoring in English with a concentration in literature. She plans to become an English Professor or a high school English teacher.

She chose to join the University Honors Program (UHP) because of the content and approaches of the interdisciplinary courses offered by the program. UHP exposed her to different disciplines, allowing her to feel like a well-rounded student. She views UHP as one of the greatest experiences of her college journey not only for the education but the opportunity to meet friends with whom she will continue to keep in touch after graduation.

To enhance her artistic experience, she joined the Sanctuary Review Board, which is an editorial board that is comprised of UHP students. Sanctuary is the student-led literary and arts journal of the Southern Regional Honors Council. As the Art Editor/Web Designer for Sanctuary, she helps curate submissions, review pieces, and publish the journal annually.

Palavi’s biggest accomplishments include the scholarships she has received, such as the Walt P. Mayfield Scholarship and The Grave Lindsley Waits Scholarship.

During her spare time, Palavi loves to paint. She also created an outlet for descriptive art to display her paintings and artwork.
