Maya Carl - Junior from New City, NY

My name is Maya Carl and I am a Junior here at Eckerd College, originally from New York. I am a Communication major and an Environmental Studies minor.  Helping people is in my genes, so never hesitate to reach out. My favorite color is turquoise and my favorite animals are llamas. After college, I hope to enter the realm of environmental communication. I am not exactly sure what that entails, but basically I want to teach people and raise awareness about agriculture and sustainable living. Always here to help and listen.

Jamal Dutton - Senior from Abington, PA

Jamal Dutton was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA.  Now in his senior year at Eckerd, he plans to continue his education at art school studying 2-D and 3-D animations. When he's not working or doing his homework, Jamal spends his time watching movies and listening to music with his friends. He also is a HUGE Sonic The Hedgehog fan and you can catch him around campus sporting something Sonic The Hedgehog related (just ask!).  Some of Jamal's hobbies include working out and personally training his peers, making music, drawing cartoons and playing video games. Jamal is a business administration major so if you are in any business classes, request him when you come to the Rahall Center.
