Dashy ’19

Hometown: Bronx, New York

Most surprising when you first arrived at Groton: I’d never been in a school with such a strong music program, so when I arrived at Groton I was really taken aback. The group of people who participated in the arts were all really kind and eager, and our teachers were extremely educated and dedicated.

Favorite class: English. It’s one of the few classes that allows students to really see into the minds of their peers and understand how they see the world. I also think it provides a wonderful opportunity to enhance your own understanding of the world, which opens the classroom for great intellectual discussion.

Groton activities: Musical theater, jazz band, peer counselor, a cappella, Groton Mentorship Program, writing

Most memorable Groton moment: Dancing on stage with half of the school while the marimba band from Maru-a-Pula was playing their amazing music

Favorite Dining Hall food: Grilled cheese and tomato soup

Favorite Surprise Holiday: Going into Boston with a few friends and eating a feast at this fantastic Chinese restaurant
