Groton activities: Photography, Film Club, boys varsity crew, squash, visual arts, theater prefect, stagecraft
Most surprising when you first arrived at Groton: How advanced Groton’s stagecraft program is. I was in awe of the shop hiding behind the theater’s main stage. Every single play set looks very professional, and the students work closely with faculty to create the sets.
Favorite classes: Art Without Boundaries because I got to explore different mediums of art. English because I enjoy writing and listening to the thoughts of my peers during class discussions after reading a book.
Most memorable Groton moment: Getting thrown into the Nashua River by my rowers after winning our final home race
Favorite Dining Hall food: Lemon poppyseed muffins
Favorite place to study: The McCormick Library study rooms with the full whiteboard walls
