Why did you choose to attend Middlebury? Growing up I visited family in Vermont every year which made Middlebury’s landscape feel like home to me. I wanted to be surrounded by really smart people at a school where I would get to know my professors on a personal level. I also loved the state-of-the art facilities and the beyond beautiful campus. So naturally, when I got accepted I jumped at the opportunity to attend!

Favorite study spot? The 3rd or 4th floor chalkboards off the Great Hall in Bicentennial Hall. 

Favorite food in the dining hall? Vegetarian option: black bean burgers. Meatatarian option: chicken parmesan.

Where did you study abroad, or where would you study abroad if you could? In Spring 2020, I studied in rural France at the University of Poitiers. It was challenging but I loved it!

Favorite Vermont spot? The Snow Bowl, which is the college-owned ski mountain 20 minutes from campus.

One fun fact about you or unknown talent you have: I avidly play classical flute.
