Why did you choose to attend Middlebury? I wanted to go to a liberal arts school in a beautiful setting with a strong sense of community. Middlebury’s emphasis on internationalism was particularly special. Midd’s strong language programs, schools abroad, and other international opportunities made it clear to me that learning on a global level was not only possible but encouraged.

Favorite study spot? The top floor of Davis Family Library by a big window that overlooks the mountains. 

Favorite food in the dining hall? Pasta day at Atwater Dining Hall.

Where did you study abroad, or where would you study abroad if you could? I studied in Buenos Aires during the fall of my junior year through the Middlebury School in Argentina. I lived with a host family, interned at a local think tank, and took political science courses at a local university. 

Favorite Vermont spot? The Knoll—the organic farm a short walk from campus. There’s a pizza oven that my friends and I have used to make delicious pizza, and we even topped it with beautiful flowers growing in the farm!

One fun fact about you or unknown talent you have: I am obsessed with the salami at Costello’s, the butcher in town, and I often buy it by the pound.
