Phi Beta Kappa Prize Winner Elise Meyers
Phi Beta Kappa Prize Winner: A native of Jefferson, Wisconsin, Elise Meyers is a double major in Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and Religious Studies with a minor in German. Her Independent Study project “Fusing Interstices: Articulating the Relationship between Science and Religion in Theory, in Particular Religious Scientists and in Self” integrates her two majors around the embodied question of what it means to practice science and practice religion, a question that grew from her summer experiences as an ACS-RISE (Research Internships in Science and Engineering) Scholar in Rostock, Germany and as a Lilly House Azimuth Grant Recipient. While at Wooster, Elise played oboe with the Wooster Symphony Orchestra and cymbals with the Scot Marching Band, helped plan masses on campus and the Sunday@Seven ecumenical service, and participated in Worthy Questions. She also started Different Drummer House, a program house for intentional community formation. Next year Elise will pursue a degree in medicine at Indiana University School of Medicine, continuing to pursue the integration of science and religion.
