Q: Why Connecticut College?
A: I was initially attracted to the beauty of the campus. But after paying a visit I was impressed by the diversity of the intellectual community and the possibilities that Connecticut College has to offer.

Q: What is it like to study science here?
A: Being a student in the physical sciences at Connecticut College, I am not only given the opportunity to conduct research, but I also have learned to connect my scientific knowledge to the society that we live in today. I took my first computer science course my sophomore year and was introduced to a world where I could tackle computer-based problems with real-world applications and solutions.

Q: Did you study abroad?
A: I participated in a service trip to South Africa over spring break my junior year. I volunteered and researched South Africans' daily activity, specifically the advantages and disadvantages of certain types of technology for physical labor.
