College is unlike any other time in your life, says Hannah Michelotti ’10. “There won’t be any other time in life that you can live on a campus away from home, take classes all day and live with your friends,” she says. “There won’t be another time where you can drop everything and go to France to study the language for four months. I’m pretty sad to know I’m actually leaving. It’s the best time of life.”
Hannah’s favorite place on campus?
The library. It’s one of the most beautiful buildings on campus because of the soft colors and natural light, it houses all the books on campus (and I love books), and I feel welcome when I walk in. I would live in the library if I had my choice of any space on campus.
