Most surprising when you first arrived at Groton: That everyone wasn’t as uptight as I thought they’d be, and everything was a lot easier than it sounded.
Favorite class: Latin, because I’ve always had an interest in Classics as well as Roman history.
Groton activities: Soccer in the fall, basketball in the winter, and track in the spring. I’m also a member of the Groton Gospel Choir, Groton Mentorship Program, and Groton Hydration.
Most memorable Groton moment: The handshaking line at Prize Day 2017
Favorite Dining Hall food: Hamburgers
Favorite Surprise Holiday: Winter 2017. I got to watch Rogue One: A Star Wars Story up until the very end, when we had to leave because the bus was leaving. I missed the good Darth Vader action-y stuff.
