Best class you have ever taken at GMC: That is a really hard question for me to answer because I have enjoyed so many of my classes here, and I have loved each of my professors. If I had to pick a favorite it would be the Shakti Tribal Dance, which was a class that combined belly dancing with philosophy, and was taught by Susanne Claxton. Other classes that I have really enjoyed are Psychology of Aging, Theories of Personality, and Images of Nature which is a 6 credit class that all first year students take.

Favorite activity on a Saturday afternoon: Sleeping in and having an opportunity to spend time with friends and go on adventures or just stay in and cuddle!

Best part about Vermont: The beautiful mountains and the down-to-earth feeling people have here.

Favorite part about attending Green Mountain College: I love the fact that GMC is a small college with an environmental mission. There is a wonderful community feeling here and I think that Green Mountain College provides a great opportunity for students to learn in a way that most colleges and universities do not provide. I absolutely love Green Mountain College, and I could not imagine studying anywhere else.
