What are you involved in on campus?

Currently I’m on the E-board of the Womyn’s Center and am working as a research assistant in the Digital Humanities department

How would you describe your style?

Goodwill. Poppin’ tagsss. Yeah honestly most of my stuff is from second-hand stores but I have my retail-splurge moments

What is your favorite item in your wardrobe?

I wear my mom’s old wax Barbour jacket all the time. It’s over 20 years old and it’s pretty ragged, but I don’t know, I just love it cause my mom used to wear it when she was a young mother and it reminds me of when I was a little kid. Actually, I distinctly remember thinking it was really ugly. I guess it is pretty ugly, but it has an old charm to it.

Polka dots or stripes?


Zebra or cheetah print?


Favorite food/drink to order at Opus?

Dirty chai latte ;)

In spirit, are you a light sider or a dark sider?

I’ve been very often told that I give off a “darkside vibe,” I don’t know though; I feel like I’m kind of a pseudo-darksider cause real darksiders are all like artists/thespians/dancers/musicians whereas I just kinda wear funky pants and spend too much time on Tumblr

Most important trait in a guy?

Oh, where do I begin? As a feminist I care a lot about the respect that a guy has for women. But that’s not just about equality; it’s about not having archaic or archetypal expectations for what a young woman should be. I would want to date someone who doesn’t make presumptions about who I am or how I should act. So I guess my most valued trait is the ability to judge with a discerning and accepting mind.

What are some adjectives your friends who use to describe you?

Lazy and skinny are probably the ones I get the most. 


Katherine is currently a sophomore at Hamilton College. She loves her school, penguins, dancing and is always down for a good adventure.
