On choosing Marlboro College
I had a relatively unsatisfactory high school experience in a large school in Memphis, Tennessee, and I was burnt out on what I thought was an academic lifestyle. I took a little over a year off doing internships around the country, and I wanted to bring my self-exploration to a community where such an enterprise would be supported. Coming to Marlboro has been that—and more: I have grown intellectually, and can still spend copious amounts of time doing the things I love outside. The first time I set foot on campus I could imagine myself going to school here because of the wooded landscape and the bucolic atmosphere.
