The intellectual vibrancy, strong community and quirky sense of humor!

Remarks on Swatties:
Swatties are very diverse in interests and personality, but are united by their supportiveness and their interest in what they're doing (as well as the sense of humor I mentioned above!) We're also very active, packing in work, multiple extracurriculars and fun; in any of these everyone is avidly pursuing their own interests without forgetting to also support their friends.
Favorite place on campus:
That's a tie between the beautiful amphitheater and the swing on the way from Sharples to the athletic facilities.
Improving my Mandarin by working at the embassy in Beijing and then law school (the dream is either reproductive rights litigation or prosecuting white collar crime).
