Cody’s future is history
Wondering what it takes to be a well-rounded person? For Cody Sterzer, it means getting a liberal arts degree. “Someone once told me a liberal arts degree is designed to do one thing: make the world inside your head a better place,” he says. “I never forgot it.”
The A student is planning to become a history professor, but his path wasn’t always clear. A self-described slacker in high school, Cody had his “OMG” moment when he took a history course at Douglas.
“Watching the instructor was fascinating. That’s when it hit me like a truck: I needed to do what he was doing. I needed to teach. Everyone else was struggling to take notes, but I just sat there looking at the board and thinking, ‘this is totally lighting up my world.’”
