President // Eliza Henne
Hey all! My name is Eliza and I'm a senior from Silver Spring, Maryland. I'm an Art History major/Chemistry minor aiming to be an art conservator—catch me at the Nasher any day of the week. In addition to dabbling in violin and oil painting, I found a new love for dance at Duke, and I dance with Club Ballroom and Duke Swing. It’ll be my third year with duARTS, and the best one yet!
