Weekly Current Student Highlight
Hello! My name is Juliet Fink. I'm a senior molecular biology major, and minoring in applied math and biochemistry. I am hoping to attend medical school following graduation! I moved to Colorado from rural New Hampshire, right in the White Mountain National Forest. I love getting outside to camp, ski and hike. I'm a huge peak bagger, so I'm working on some of the 14ers! When I'm not outside exploring you can find me studying in Barnes, working at the campus Quantitative Reasoning Center or practicing with the CC Nordic ski team. I also volunteer at Memorial Hospital downtown and hold a position in my sorority, Kappa Alpha Theta. If I'm not busy with all those things, I'm probably napping, hanging with friends or eating pasta. I'm so excited for my last year surrounded by the Colorado College campus community!
