Class of 2012
Read my blog: A Moment of Happiness
Hometown: Alexandria, VA
Majors: Neuroscience, History of Science and Technology
Current residence: Off-campus
Campus involvement: JHU Tutorial Project, MSA, ASU, SHARE, JHU Democrats, and Admissions Representatives
Why I chose Johns Hopkins: Because of the incredible research opportunities, the strong program in neuroscience, the beautiful campus, and the world-renowned professors.
Favorite class: Bodyworks: Body, Medicine and Technology in the 21st Century. This class combined my favorite aspects of philosophy, history and science and allowed the students to explore the idea of having a body versus being embodied through discussion, films, media, articles, guest lecturers, etc. It was such an intellectually enriching class and environment that I not only learned so much but truly enjoyed interacting and learning.
Favorite professor: Dr. Stewart Hendry. The fact that Dr. Hendry's name comes up regularly when Hopkins students are asked about their favorite professor is no accident. To be a brilliant scientist and an marvelous lecturer while also keeping students interested and engaged and challenging them without making them want to die is a balance that very few professors have mastered, and Dr. Hendry does it like it is an art form.
Favorite place on the Homewood campus: Levering Hall: It is where Tutorial is held, it has my favorite coffee place Pura Vida, its study lounge is always quiet, and it is currently the oldest (non-renovated) building on campus.
Favorite place in Baltimore: The Book Thing. A little piece of heaven that happens to be located off of 31st street right near campus, basically a warehouse that houses mountains upon mountains of books. And you can walk in, look around, and walk out with free books. Free. Not as in library free where you have to return it but absolutely it is yours forever free. Do I really need to explain why this is heaven on earth?
Favorite Johns Hopkins memory: Celebrating the Obama victory November of my freshmen year until 4:00 a.m., students dancing in the street, cars honking, it was an amazing memory.
