Favorite Class/Team/Club/Activity: While I wasn’t the fastest runner, I really enjoyed being a part of the girl’s cross-country team. At practices and races, I was able to challenge and push my body and mind as much as I wanted, and I loved how it never mattered if you were fast or slow or just joined the team—the girls and coaches were always there to cheer you on. 

What I miss the most Due to Virtual Term: I definitely miss all the spontaneous interactions that would take place after study hall, especially those that took place in the common rooms. I miss bonding and debriefing about the day with my dormmates over Ms. Pressman’s baked goods or the Dining Hall cookies. I miss how easy it was to just talk with the faculty on duty about random things like their spice preferences, ASMR sounds, or advice they would give to themselves at our age. It was small interactions like those that always seemed to make my day. 

Three Words to describe SAS: Exhausting, rewarding, home.

Advice to Underclassmen & Future Students: Don’t forget to take some time off for yourself. Try to find that balance between academics and other obligations that works best for you and remember that it’s okay to do nothing and just relax for a bit.
