    What has been your favorite class that you've taken at Thacher and why?

    My favorite class at Thacher so far has been Dr. Vyhnal’s Advanced Chemistry: Applications in Art and Archaeology. I am someone who has always been interested in chemistry, however this class opened my eyes to the interconnectivity of science, art, and history. From synthesizing pigments we would later paint with, to studying the first art known to humankind, this class made it clear that art and science can work together to reveal so much about history. This course, like many other interdisciplinary classes at Thacher, opened my eyes to the collaboration of two seemingly disconnected subject areas. It is definitely still the best class I’ve taken!

    How have you changed during your years here – or – How are your hopes, dreams, or ambitions for the future different from when you arrived?

    At the beginning of my freshman year I was someone who was afraid to fail. Whether it was missing a shot in lacrosse, or receiving a bad grade on a test, I wasn’t comfortable with the idea of taking risks out of fear of failing. As a senior, I feel more confident than ever in my ability to fail gracefully, something I think is a direct result of my time at Thacher.
