Katie O’Neill Katie O'Neill
Master of Arts in Food Studies

Currently I’m halfway through my first year as a food studies graduate student and I’m so glad that I chose Chatham for my graduate studies. Chatham is the perfect fit for me because it has beautiful campuses, a strong focus upon sustainability, and amazing learning opportunities. Also, it offers a ton of great activities for students, like the work-n-pick program at the organic farm at Chatham’s Eden Hall campus. When I’m not super busy studying or working at Admissions, I love to travel, cook, and spend time outdoors. As a graduate ambassador, I interact with many prospective graduate students and give tours of campus. If you have any questions about Chatham or life as a graduate student, please feel free to e-mail me at or schedule a tour to see one of Chatham’s campuses!

Master of Arts in Teaching

Hi! I'm Anna and I'm in my first semester of the Masters of Arts in Teaching program for Secondary Social Studies. I'm originally from Virginia, but Pittsburgh has been my home for the past three years. I love exploring different neighborhoods in the city and trying new restaurants. I love Chatham's beautiful and historic campus, and it feels like my own little oasis in the city. When not at Chatham, I enjoy traveling, cooking, spending time in the outdoors, and visiting living history museums and art museums. Please feel free to contact me with questions or schedule a tour of the campus.

Master of Arts in Food Studies

I grew up in the Virginia Beach area and went to Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond where I earned my BA in International Social Justice in 2009. After reading "Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" by Barbara Kingsolver, I couldn't get enough of reading about food and agriculture. I found the Food Studies program by coincidence and now here I am! In addition to studying and reading all the time, I like to make jewelry, cook, hike, work at Churchview Farm, and have started brewing my own beer.
