Meet the 2011 English Majors (Part 1)

On July 12, we welcomed to campus the first group of incoming undergraduate English/English Adolescent Education majors.  Meet Amanda, Krissi, Anna, Alex, Kate, Liz, Olivia, and Matt (click the picture to enlarge).  They hail from New Hampshire and a variety of New York locales.  By way of introduction, they offered up these unusual facts about themselves.  Can you match the description to the major?  [Note: just to make it more difficult, the group has included one absolute untruth.]
