The Hill Magazine


We aim to inform, educate, and entertain our readers by bringing them the stories of our alumni and faculty while illuminating topics of national and international concern. Rounding out the picture are updates on campus and sporting events, staff and faculty feats, and student and alumni achievements. Class Notes, which give each alumnus a chance to shine, complete our profile of "the Hill" experience.

Senior Molly Schonfeld was among several McDaniel students who spent their summer participating in internships or conducting independent research in collaboration with their professors. 

An Exercise Science and Physical Education major, Schonfeld literally put herself in the shoes of an amputee while conducting research on prosthetics. She researched biomechanics, anatomy, amputation and medical history corresponding on her findings with lecturer David Petrie. 

The independent study leaves her one step closer to her dream, empowered to take on the senior capstone experience in the fall – which she might do on 3D printing or prosthetics – and excited to begin applications to graduate school. MORE
