Lucian Sharpe ’20

Day Student – Concord, Mass.

What are you involved in at CA?

I am a DEMONs co-head. DEMONs is dedicated to helping solve the faculty’s, staff’s, and the larger community’s problems through engineering. I am also an orientation leader as well as a member of both the ski and track teams.

How would you describe common trust?

Common trust is my departmental study that I left in the upper Stu-Fac two days ago, which hasn’t moved, and the senior chapels. It’s the test taken without a teacher, the consensus to better the community and to think with respect to all individuals, not just your individual self.

What is the best class you’ve taken at CA and why?

The best class I’ve taken at CA is my current engineering class with Amy Kumpel. We did the classic egg-drop challenge, but with pumpkins, off of the top of CA Labs.

What is on your CA bucket list?

One thing I’ve always wanted to do is canoe to school. I live near the Concord River and I’ve taken canoes out for my environmental science class before, but I have yet to canoe to school one morning.

What else is special to you about CA?

One thing I feel very strongly about is the teachers’ unwavering dedication. Every day each teacher tries to engage the class through various activities and lectures, and often they aren’t afraid to try something totally new like go to Walden Pond to read Thoreau’s Walden. Their commitment to the students and the material is impressive and inspiring.
