OBIE Sighting at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago

Jackie Bousek '08 studying for an MA in Art Therapy

Jackie Bousek

Jackie Bousek double majored in Cinema Studies as well as Visual Art with a concentration in psychology at Oberlin, graduating this past May. Currently¬† she is a student at SAIC, where she is working on getting her MA in the Art Therapy program. She writes, “I am taking five classes. I really enjoy it and cannot see myself doing anything else right now. Every time I learn more about art therapy I am reassured that this is exactly where I want to be and what I want to be studying.”

Jackie was a McNair scholar for two years at Oberlin, and also says: “I thank the McNair program and all my professors and friends for encouraging me to even apply to graduate school; without their support I would have not been able to do so. The McNair program especially helped me prepare for the process and gave me insight on what to expect, and for that I am forever grateful.”

Thanks for the update Jackie, and keep up the great work in Chicago.
