DePaul University DeBlogs > Ruth Hogle >
Hi, everyone! My name is Ruth Hogle, and I am a senior at DePaul. I am a cello performance major in the School of Music, so I spend most hours of the day in the School of Musics three buildings on the edge of campus.
Some of my favorite activities I have been doing since I have been a student at DePaul include going for runs to Lake Michigan, going to the Lincoln Park Zoo for free, ice skating in Millennium Park, performing with the indie rock band from my church, and sitting down with a chai tea latte and my Bible at a local caf, the Bourgeois Pig Caf.
In addition to doing all those fun things in Chicago, I also deeply love visiting my older sister, my twin, and my parents, who all live in different cities.
My past two summers, I have been fortunate enough to live in Trujillo, Peru and volunteer with a non-profit organization for college students. I taught Peruvian children and adults how to play cello, I performed with the Trujillo Symphony, and I oversaw the activities of the other American volunteers in the organization.
College has been an incredible time for me to discover more of who I am, what I love, and what I dream to do with my gifts and passions. DePaul has helped nurture all those things, and I hope you can explore more of what DePaul has to offer you!
