Meet Chris Stone ’20

Chris Stone’ 20 was nominated by 20 of his peers (coincidence, probably) for Campus Profile!  Her Campus was happy to meet Chris Stone, the legend!

Tell me about where are you from:

I’m from Millburn, New Jersey. It’s in the northern part of the state and about a half hour outside of New York City. I know what you’re thinking about NJ, but it’s not actually that bad.

 

How does the weather at Amherst compare to the weather back home?:

It’s been pretty similar to back home so far, just a few degrees colder on average. The cool air was appreciated for the first couple weeks, but ask me again in the winter and you might get a different answer.

 

Why did you choose to attend Amherst?:

I was drawn to the small campus, open curriculum, and academic rigor. Those all played a part in my decision, but the main reason was to spite my sister who went to Williams.

What are you interested in both academically and leisurely?:

I’m still trying to figure out what I want to study during my time at Amherst. My economics and psychology classes so far this year have been really interesting and enjoyable, but I’m open to taking all kinds of different classes over the next four years. Leisurely, I love spending time playing golf when the weather allows, or Mariokart Double Dash when it doesn’t.

 

What are you passionate about the most?:

I’m probably most passionate about running and I’m looking forward to being on the cross country and track teams during college, but my true talent lies in water bottle flipping. 60% of the time, I land it every time.

 

Tell me the best memory of your first year:

The best memory so far this year is probably my LEAP trip during orientation week. I went canoeing and met a lot of cool people and had a great time, even if I had to go to the bathroom in the woods and couldn’t shower for three days.

 

What are your plans for the rest of your time at Amherst and beyond:

I don’t really have many plans set in place for my time at Amherst, just hoping to have a good time and meet new people and stay focused on academics. Hard to tell right now what I want to do after graduation. Just gonna take it day by day and see where that goes.

 

What is the best compliment you’ve received?:

“Chris Stone, you legend”
