Favorite Class/Team/Club/Activity: My favorite team will always be the rowing team because not only did I fall in love with the sport but I LOVED the whole team; each year I had different rowers to look up to, whether it was Claire Miller or Sylvia Reed. Coach Berl mentored me to not only become the best athlete I could be, but the best teammate and person overall. 

What I miss the most Due to Virtual Term: Since the virtual term has began what I find I miss most about SAS is being on campus with my people. I miss the freshman piling on top of me during study hall, Katie and Molly snacking with me after study hall, playing four square on the Front Lawn, going on hikes, and sitting around the seminar table. 

Favorite SAS memory/tradition/place: My favorite place at St. Andrew’s is the grass docks. I have been able to create many memories there—our junior class paint party, watching the sunrise, or just laying down in the grass looking up at the stars. 

Powerful Experience: One of the most powerful experience I had at St. Andrew’s was when I realized that this was my home away from home. It was just another regular study hall night freshman year and Sofie Neil ’19 came to help me with math. After we were done, we ate pretzels and Oreos and just talked and got to know each other. This moment made me know that St. Andrew’s was different—everybody wants to be friends with one another and build the community. 

Community Impact Project: A project I’ve worked on while at SAS was interning for Communications this fall with Will Cook. We engaged with fall sports and activities, taking pictures and making videos. At the same time working with Will made us become closer to the point where he is now one of my best friends. 

Recall in a Decade: I know what will stick with me the most from my time at St. Andrew’s are the friendships that I have my made and the memories I created with them—canoeing/ flipping a canoe, tandem bike rides, swims in the pond, sitting down in classroom having long conversations and so many more. 

Three Words to describe SAS: Home, beautiful, loving.
