Emily Stollman ’18 is a sophomore from Pottstown, Penn. She is a self-design major, focusing on language studies and graphic design with a minor in education.
“I chose Green Mountain because when I visited, I felt like it was a very progressive school, doing a lot to change how we live and work. People were very involved through things like SCGF (Student Campus Greening Fund) and I was impressed by it. And, I was looking for a small school where there would be close teacher-student relationships.”
Among her other aspirations, Emily is interested in becoming fluent in French. In 2012, she took a class trip to France. “I went with other people who were studying the language and we traveled to the west coast, Normandy, and visited a lot of tourist spots as well as small towns as we travelled west.” Emily is currently taking an independent study in conversational French with retired faculty member Mitch LesCarbeau’s wife Armelle–they meet every other week for lessons.
A talented artist and writer, Emily likes to draw and paint in her spare time, and is interested in doing more graphic design work, an enthusiasm she developed in high school while taking Illustrator and Photoshop classes. She also hopes to travel and see more of the world. Emily is the co-president of ICC, editor-in-chief of the school’s newspaper The Mountaineer, a member of the UNICEF club, and a peer tutor in the library.
“I’ve been really lucky to find a place where I engage all of my interests.”
