Caroline Colbert ’17

What were your interests in high school?
In high school I was a pretty serious flutist. I was in a competitive marching band and concert band and did solo projects on the side. I also did a brief stint on my school’s Girls’ Varsity weightlifting team.

What is your favorite activity outside of the classroom?
Nowadays, I like to spend my free time cooking, reading, and going to the ballet.

Why did you decide to major in course 22?
I decided on Course 22 because I thought it sounded fun and challenging. I was right on both counts.

What is you most memorable experience so far as a course 22 student?
My most memorable experiences in Course 22 have been the social events where I’ve gotten to know my professors and classmates in an informal context. These include dinners (and bowling) with my lab group, ANS barbecues and study breaks in the Chateau with the other undergrads.

What would you like to do after graduating?
I haven’t the slightest idea what I’m going do when I graduate. Whatever it is, I’m sure it will be fun.
