Jack ’17

Jack-bigHometown: Anchorage, Alaska

What surprised you most when you first arrived: What surprised me most was how good the food was. No joke.

Favorite class(es) and why: My favorite class is Latin because it blends all of the humanities together. It is a language class, a literature class, and a history class all in one.

Groton activities: cross-country, winter running, crew, The Circle Voice (student-run newspaper), Young Republicans Club, Catholic Prefect

Most memorable Groton moment: My most memorable Groton moment has been my team, the boys crew team, winning first at the New England Rowing Championships last spring.

Favorite Dining Hall food: Pulled pork sandwiches and sweet potato fries

Favorite Surprise Holiday (what you did): My favorite Surprise Holiday so far has been Winter Surprise Holiday 2014, or to be exact, the night before it. After the senior prefects announced that Surprise Holiday would be the next day, my whole form engaged in a nighttime snowball fight. Lots of fun.
