What can you tell us why you chose me? So the first time I visited Chloe was actually during the minute students weekend. So I've come to cool be hearing about it from the Westbridge program. It wasn't till I reached will be that I really understood what they meant by like, their community values. I just really love the sense of welcoming this and the warmth that people had for each other. I really felt that people respect each other in the community, and we want to make each other grow and learn together and work to make the world a better place. Um, so what do you think the student body is like? I don't really think that there's a lot of respect your commitment for each other. I think people look for the best in each other, but we also look for ways that we could encourage each other to grow on. I think people are willing to listen to each other, and I think that's really important as a community Teo build on each other Street What's your major? I'm currently planning to be a double major in chemistry, environmental science and psychology Parasite. What got you interested in those subjects? So I started. I came to public school and paella with their science curriculum. Uh, back in my hometown and kind of that love has just continued over. I also did Science Olympiad in middle school and high school, so that definitely foster my love for science. What's your favorite and least favorite part of covert? I think my favorite part is the way that will be really offers a lot of different opportunities to try out different things. We really take the liberal arts experience two different levels. I think we try to foster a sort of, like, integrative part for everyone. So if you're interested something, you cannot find a club for it or organization, talk to faculty or even just like meet alumni who have been involved in those different things. So there's always the chance to be exploring something needed that maybe you didn't think about, and at least we were apart probably how I see it gets in the winter. What's Hillside? Hillside is one of the dorm areas, so it's on the far edge of campus, and it's like on a hill. So during the winter, all the snow will melt and the freeze over, and then it's, like, supervised, trying to walk up the path there. Um, if you have to do, um, application season all over again, would you still choose Colby? Definitely.
