Hello! My name is J. Elias Dove and I prefer to go by Eli.

I am a sophomore here at JMU and I am a Political Science major. I am currently planning to pursue law school after graduation, although I haven’t thought much about where. Growing up in Harrisonburg, it feels like JMU has been a part of my life since the beginning. As a townie and a Duke, I can truly call this place home. I’m a very artsy person and I have a passion for writing. I found out about this class through a friend and thought it would be a fun lab, as I’ve always been intrigued by 3D printing, but have never actually done it. The most experience I have with 3D printing is watching it on Youtube, but as a lover of art, I feel like it will be a fun new way to express creativity.
