Kayla White '14

Hey!

My name is Kayla White and I’m from Silver Spring, MD but being from the DC Area, I always claim I’m from DC.  I’m a sophomore French and Psychology double major here at Amherst and I absolutely love both of the departments.

If our motto, Terras Irradient, were inverted, the world would bring its light to students, right here at Amherst College. On Nov. 15, that's exactly what happend. EXPO-losion, held at the Powerhouse, was hosted by the African & Caribbean Students' Union and sought to creatively convey the diversity, culture and flavor of Amherst College through song, dance, spoken word and cuisine. Proceeds benefitted Charity: Water, a campaign to bring clean drinking water to developing countries.

A Community that Looks Like the World

We believe that a great intellectual community should look like the world, and with every incoming student, that community comes to life here.
