Groton activities: Girls cross country, JV crew, The Circle Voice, theater
Most surprising when you first arrived at Groton: Dorm check-ins. Before I attended Groton, I thought I knew what dorm life was like because of my previous experiences at a junior boarding school. However, I was extremely surprised during my first week at Groton, sitting in the inner common room with my peers, answering ice-breaker questions, and listening to stories from the day. The laughter and intimacy of those first dorm check-ins struck me and will be something I fondly remember.
Favorite class: Either English or ecology. I have really enjoyed my English classes at Groton so far; from our inquisitive class discussions to the eagerness and helpfulness of my teacher, I have developed a genuine curiosity for writing and analyzing literature. I have also loved learning about relationships between individual organisms and their environments in my ecology class, and how these relationships apply to broader issues such as climate change.
Most memorable Groton moment: Playing volleyball with friends Saturday night on the Circle.
Favorite Dining Hall food: Winter bread
Favorite place to study:
The Circle on a warm spring day or the Dillon Art Center
