I love the single-sex environment because it gives us a chance to talk about topics we would normally not talk about in a classroom setting and gives us a freedom to be completely ourselves.

Favorite Subject
My favorite subject is Physiology. I like Physiology because we learn about topics that can have an immediate impact on our life, such as our anatomy and several diseases with their symptoms, which is always helpful.

Favorite School Activity
I like being on the Sign Language Club and Math Club. I like Math Club because it has given me an opportunity to get close to girls from the other grades. I like Sign Language Club because it has been a chance to learn a different language.

Favorite School Tradition
I love class retreats. At the end of the retreats, I always feel like I know my classmates better, even those I don't talk to that much. I just love the air of openness and togetherness that comes along with it.

Favorite Space/Classroom on Campus
I love the Williams Library because it has a great view and it is one of the quietest places to study on campus. It's also a plus that there are couches in there.

Best Part of Your Day
The best parts of my day are lunch and my free period. I like lunch because it is a time when I can see most of my friends, with whom I don't have classes, and it involves food, which is always a plus. I like my free period because I am able to get a lot of studying and homework done, and it gives me a time to rest and regenerate for the rest of my day.

Favorite School Project
I am really proud of my Sophomore Capstone Project. It was on a topic that most people didn't know much about and it was concentrated on a different country than the U.S., so it was a little challenging to find people to interview. However, despite the challenges, what made this project even more amazing was because it was about a topic I have always been passionate about.

Benefits of Single-Sex Classes, Co-ed Community
I love the single-sex environment because it gives us a chance to talk about topics we would normally not talk about in a classroom setting and gives us a freedom to be completely ourselves. The fact that we also have the co-ed environment enables us to get a different perspective on things and prepares us for the real world, which is in fact co-ed.
