I’m Elizabeth White and I’m a freshman this year. It will be awhile longer before I settle on a major, so for now I am enjoying the open curriculum. While my potential major changes daily, my top ideas are neuroscience or biophysics/ biochemistry. I am originally from New Hampshire, so New England winters don’t really faze me.
At the beginning of the school year, I made an impulse decision to join the crew team. It takes up a lot of time, but I love learning how to row and improving with my team. I am also a mentor for the Reader to Reader program. For this program, I read a book along with a kid and we talk about it on an online forum every night. I am still trying to sort through all the emails from various clubs I receive, and decide which ones to stick with throughout the year.
This time last year, I was in the middle of what seemed like an endless college search. Even while I was writing my college essays, I hadn’t finalized the elusive “college list”. For awhile, I wasn’t convinced that I should apply to Amherst. Needless to say, I am unbelievably happy and relieved that I did. I absolutely love Amherst College. If you have any questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d be happy to talk with you!
