What have you learned about yourself during your time at CA?
At CA, I discovered my passion for government and politics. Through our socially conscious environment and our history department, I was able to learn more about international politics and U.S. social justice than I would have anywhere else.
What memorable experience have you had outside the classroom?
Before spring break this year I went on the college visiting trip with the school. Not only was I able to hang out with my friends while considering the colleges we saw, but I was also able to connect with the adults on the trip. As a result, I finished the trip a lot more relaxed about the college process.
What advice do you have for an incoming student?
Try new things. CA is a place full of well-rounded students who are very inclusive. We’re one of the few schools where you can excel as a varsity athlete, musician, and club head. A lot of us have picked up our biggest passions at CA. There are so many opportunities. Don’t be afraid to try something. You don’t have to stick with it.
