Portrait of Margaret Helmick


Finding a passion for religion

Margaret Helmick
Religious Studies

Margaret spent a month traveling through Europe and Asia in summer 2017. There she visited museums and churches while experiencing other cultures and religions. “It was such an incredible experience that only made me fall more in love with what I study,” Margaret says. “Had I never found my passion for religion at WVU, I would not have been able to so greatly appreciate that experience.”

It wasn’t until she took an introductory world religions class that Margaret realized how interested she was with the topic. “If you had told the high school version of myself that I would one day dream of becoming a professor of religious studies, she would have told you that you were crazy.”
