Why did you choose Middlebury?
I was friends with an alum and she always told me how caring Middlebury is of its students and members and that kind of small, close-knit school was exactly what I was looking for.
Why/How did you choose your major?
I’ve always been interested in the environment and the field is always changing and developing, and I hope to make a contribution to it one day. One field I would really love to get into is environmental entrepreneurship.
What was your biggest challenge transitioning into the college atmosphere?
Plucking up the courage to just go and talk to people. We’re all on the same boat but there’s still that thing holding you back, but I did it!
What’s your fondest memory of Midd?
Late nights hanging out in my room or a friend’s with ten other people (or even more) and just talking. Late nights are the best way to bond.
Favorite class/Professor and why?
Probably my First Year Seminar The Bronte Sisters with Antonia Losano. It was so awesome to be in a class of only 11 people who you lived and we discussed some of my favorite books which was great! Also, it was such a relaxed class atmosphere, everyone had a great time in it and Antonia is such a smart and sweet woman who knows her Victorian era like no other!
What do you do in your spare time?
When I’m not helping out in my Commons or taking part in clubs, I like to listen to music, go to town with my friends (especially for foooood), ride around campus on my beautiful bike named Crimson, and lay out in the sun on Battell Beach.
If you were a Disney character, who would you be and why?
Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Who wouldn’t want to be a princess, in France, with a castle full of magic and talking furniture, and a hot prince (beast or not)?!
One piece of advice you would give prospective students in the admissions process?
I know it seems really stressful right now and it’s good to be worried/nervous/etc. but just remember that everything always falls into place and works out.
