ETS-Me From Grainger County to Johnson City and Beyond

My name is Dylan Looney and I'm from Rutledge, TN. Here's the "hustle and bustle" of main street.

Pretty tiny, huh? I chose ETSU because it was far enough away that I could experience new surroundings, yet close enough to home that I could see my family regularly.

I'm majoring in English with a minor in Communication Studies. Somehow, I still manage to say "ain't" regularly.

In five years, I see myself working in either media writing or technical writing. Needless to say, I'll be doing a lot of this...

In my spare time, I enjoy writing, playing, and recording music. I also host a podcast with my best friend. Sometimes we make eye contact. Sometimes.

I am particularly passionate about songwriting. Without sounding like a cheap plug, here's a lyric video for one of my songs!

In May, I will be the first person in my family with a college degree. ETSU's amazing resources have helped me every step of the way. I will be proud to walk across that stage as a Buccaneer!
