Principia highlight (so far):
I especially love being a member of Lazy Zipper, the student-run improv comedy group. We work hard, but have lots of fun! Also, I’ve had a very rewarding experience running on the cross country team. Finally, I’d definitely say my friends are the most important highlight of my Prin experience. I feel so blessed to be able to spend time with such extraordinary young men and women every day—learning from and with them all the time.

Thoughts about Principia:

I most value the uplifted thought and the supportive atmosphere at Principia, in addition to all of the amazing opportunities available to every student.
