Most surprising when you first arrived: Everyone seemed incredibly friendly and eager to welcome new students into the community. Many returning students were helping new formmates move in and become familiar with the campus.
Favorite classes: Biology and history because they are both equally interesting and entertaining. In-class discussions are always engaging, and it’s easy for everyone to participate as long as they have done the reading.
Groton activities: Athletics—cross country, ice hockey, and rugby. I have attended some Cultural Alliance and Young Republicans meetings, in addition to writing for the Circle Voice.
Most memorable Groton moment: Definitely the spring 2015 Surprise Holiday, when one of our house prefects and Mr. Maqubela rode around the Circle in a green golf cart.
Favorite Dining Hall food: Grilled cheese sandwiches and French fries
Favorite Surprise Holiday: For winter Surprise Holiday , I went to the mall with some friends, ate fast food, and watched a movie.
