Major: Advertising and Art
hometown: St. Louis, Missouri
Elise Ott is from St. Louis, Missouri — home of her favorite hockey team, the St. Louis Blues. Elise is an advertising and art major, and she hopes to eventually become an art director at an ad agency. Her dream job would be to work for Deutsch L.A., which is the agency that handles Taco Bell’s digital advertising. Elise needs to listen to music at least once a day; she enjoys a wide variety of music, including bands such as Alt-J and Cage The Elephant. Her favorite thing to do (when she has some spare time) is read beatnik-era literature, especially novels by Jack Kerouac. She once went on the Warped Tour for a week with a friend’s magazine and is planning a thru-hike on the Pacific Crest Trail for the summer after she graduates.
