Caroline P. '23


Hi, my name’s Caroline!

I’m a writer, theater nerd, Wisconsinite, giver of hugs, and life enthusiast who’s on a mission to discover the secrets of the universe and find free food whenever possible. If I had to pick, I would say my defining feature is curiosity. I always try to understand things even when I don’t need to understand them, and then I use that knowledge to make something new.

This trait explains my two main interests: The arts, which work to understand people, and STEM, which works to understand the world around us. I don’t even remotely know what I want to major in yet, but I enjoy physics (course 8), math (course 18), engineering (many, many different courses) and programming (course 6). That doesn't really narrow down my options too much, but I’m okay with that.

Other pertinent information about me includes the fact that I live in a lovely dorm called East Campus, I have an affinity for the outdoors, and I love to cook. At MIT, I hope to figure things out. Math equations, real-world problems, how to ride the Boston T, who I am, what the heck is going on, everything.

I’ll let you know how it goes!
