What has been your favorite non-academic experience?

During Homecoming weekend of my first semester at Colgate, I came down with the flu. Stuck in my dorm missing the weekend activities, my a cappella group surprised me with a serenade right in my dorm! I knew then I had a family away from home.

What has been your favorite academic experience?

I reached out to my Challenges of Modernity professor, Ben Child, about a topic that we tangentially discussed in class that I wanted to discuss further. We ended up sending multiple emails back and forth about that topic and others related to additional discussions in class. The chance to connect with professors on such a personal level has been a highlight of my Colgate experience.

What has been your favorite academic experience?

My favorite academic experience occurred this past semester in a geography course. As a class, we visited the Visualization Lab to track how the sun’s path in the sky changes with the different seasons. It was an amazing experience, and one that really opened my eyes to all the different academic learning tools available to students.

What has been your favorite academic experience?

My favorite academic experience has been living with a group of my peers as a part of the Sophomore Residential Seminar. The best part of this program is that there is a 10-14 day trip at the end (no extra cost!). There are five classes traveling to an array of locations; my class was lucky enough to visit Paris and experience French culture firsthand.

What has been your favorite non-academic experience at Colgate?

During my first year, I went to England to participate in the annual Oxford Inter-Varsity Debate Tournament with the Colgate Debate Society. It was truly inspiring to be a part of such a prestigious and intense event where many of the world’s most skilled debaters were competing. While at Oxford, I also had a number of other very enjoyable experiences, including a visit to the world-famous Ashmolean museum. At the Ashmolean, I researched and photographed many ancient artifacts, mostly cuneiform tablets, and used this research as the basis for my final essay in the Classical Mythology class that I was taking that semester. It was amazing to be given the opportunity to connect my tangible experience abroad with my academic journey at Colgate.

What has been your favorite academic experience?

During the first semester of my first year, I was enrolled in a cultural anthropology class that was different from any class I have ever taken. Prior to taking the course, I had no idea what anthropology was. Throughout the semester, I needed to challenge myself by trying to understand completely different cultures without comparing them to my own or judging them based on my life experiences. I thoroughly enjoyed the class and after one semester studying anthropology, I decided that I would like to minor in it.

What has been your favorite non-academic experience?

This past year I was given the opportunity to travel with my Model United Nations (MUN) club to Seoul, South Korea to compete in an international MUN competition hosted by Harvard University. For five days, I debated and collaborated with students from all over the world to solve international conflicts such as defending against cyber warfare and creating missile defense systems. Going to South Korea was the culmination of my Model United Nations experience all year. Next year, Colgate Model United Nations Club will be attending Harvard's conference in Rome, Italy.
