JONATHAN

HOMETOWN:
 Williamstown, MA
HIGH SCHOOL:
Northfield Mount Hermon School
MAJOR:
Psychology and Science in Society Program 
STUDY ABROAD:
Queen Mary University of London, UK
THESIS:

I hope to do extensive research on the correlation between relationships and personality. Right now, there is a lot of research that goes to show how our personality may affect how we act or treat people in the relationship we engage in—especially in romantic relationships. What I want to look at, however, is how relationships that we build throughout our lives in turn affect our personalities, especially looking at college “hook-up” culture.

FAVORITE CLASS:

Ebony Singers: Gospel Music with Pastor Marichal Monts. Singing is not something I came to Wesleyan expecting to pursue or enjoy. Now, every Monday night for the past three semesters at Wesleyan, I rush into the depths of the CFA to go to class, simply because it is the highlight of my week. Without fail, Pastor Monts ends class every class with influential, healing words—most of which have to do with our college experience and how we perceive ourselves in the world.

CAMPUS
ACTIVITIES:

On campus I have been heavily involved with the Office of Admission. For the past three years I have been a WesFest Intern, helping plan and organize the revisit day for admitted students in the spring. I am a member of the women’s track and field team and a sister in Wesleyan’s only sorority, Rho Epsilon Pi. I also completed my Emergency Medical Technician Certification through WesEMTs.

FAVORITE WESLEYAN EXPERIENCE:

When I was finishing up my college decision process, one of the most important things for me was to visit each school I was heavily considering and get to know the people. When I came on my visit during WesFest, I attended the all-campus barbeque. Little did I know that it was also the time of the year that the campus-wide Zombies Versus Humans game was going on. The zombies (current students) started to attack the new pre-frosh in a playful, incredibly funny way—definitely a favorite moment of mine.

OUTSIDE WESLEYAN:

I am a child at heart. When I’m not off saving the world, I love to hole up in my room at home with my twin sister and play The Sims.

AFTER WESLEYAN:

My goal is to attend medical school to get a degree to practice clinical psychiatry. I hope that someday I will be able to help make amendments to mental health policy in the United States and around the world.
