Bio: Born in the Northeast but raised in the Southeast! I’m an Environmental/Urban Studies AOC who is interested in urban sustainability, particularly as it relates to transportation and equity issues. Other than academics, I am a part of the NCSA (New College Student Alliance) as the VP of Green Affairs! I also enjoy taking classes at the fitness center or napping in the community hammocks.
Why I Chose New College: I’m honestly sometimes not sure quite how I ended up here; I came here when I was a junior in high school, and as soon as I stepped foot on campus I knew it was the right choice for me.
Favorite Things about New College: Being able to bike and walk around campus and run into at least one person that I a) study with, b) dance with at the walls, c) have had a heated discussion with, d) have shared a laugh with or e) (and this is the best) all of the above!
Bio: Living most of my life in Central Florida, I love being so close to the beach. I am interested in the intersection of politics and gender in Literature, and will be basing my thesis on Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina. I work as a Resident Advisor on the residential side of campus, as well as being the President of College Democrats, Co-President of CKI, and Secretary of VOX.
Why I Chose New College: I enjoyed the challenge created within the classroom, as well as the close relationship students had to professors.
Favorite Things About New College: The close relationships you make with your friends, the ability to define my studies on my own terms, and the fluidity of your social life both on and off campus.
