Student Profile: Joshua Gove
For some undergraduates, picking just one area to study is like painting a rainbow with one color. St. Johns junior Joshua Gove wants more than a monochromatic education.
Alma College’s liberal arts education allows him to major in art and design while also studying Spanish, which is his minor. He discovered his passion for these fields while still in high school.
“I entered drawings in the Michigan Youth Arts Festival,” says Gove. “During spring break, I traveled to Spain. While art is probably my biggest passion, I hope to explore lots of things in college.”

His favorite mediums to work with are pastels and charcoals. He says “color usage, absurd still life, and weird backdrops and costumes” are what inspire him the most.
While Gove still has many credits to go before he earns his degree, he is eagerly looking forward to his remaining years at Alma.
“I’m hoping to figure out exactly what field I will go into, or maybe I can find a field where I can utilize all of my interests,” he says.
In addition to staying busy with his classes, Gove is on the men’s tennis team and the committee for the Pine River Anthology.
