Groton activities: Squash, Tabletop Gaming Club, Philosophy Club, Geography Group, Rocket Team, and Book Club
Most surprising when you first arrived at Groton: While cliché, I was surprised at the level of connection that I was able to form with the community, including friends, dormmates, and teachers. Whether it was a class dinner, a dorm study hall, or a school dance, these experiences made Groton a true home-away-from-home.
Favorite class: While I have loved all my classes at Groton, Third Form English is a class that I will never forget. From the classic Their Eyes Were Watching God, to the more eccentric Drive Your Plow Over the Bones of the Dead, the class was always both entertaining and intellectual. I'll never forget the class dinners or the unhinged example sentences in the textbook.
Most memorable Groton moment: During the spring, we hosted a marimba band from the Maru-a-Pula School in Botswana. While we all went to the concert confused and not sure what to expect, by the end almost the whole school was on stage. The energy was super exciting and fun, and everyone was blown away.
Favorite Dining Hall food: The grilled cheese with tomato soup is exquisite.
Favorite place to study: I really enjoy working on the Circle in the afternoon.
