Hi everyone! I'm Zoe and I'm planning to major in English and minor in Entrepreneurship and Management. Though I grew up on a farm outside of Baltimore, I went to high school just two miles from the wonderful Homewood campus. I'm very familiar with the area and pride myself on showing my friends the coolest spots around here. If you have any questions about Baltimore or the surrounding communities, please don't hesitate to ask!
I fell in love with Hopkins as soon as I stepped on campus. All of the professors I met constantly showed so much passion for what they do, and the students were engaged and enthusiastic about what they're involved in and what they're studying. When I was looking around at possible colleges, I didn't find any other school that simultaneously challenges and supports its students as well as Hopkins. At this university, you have the independence to push yourself academically and socially but still have support from all sides.

Outdoor Pursuits Current Instructor: Outdoor Pursuits is the organization that runs the pre-orientation programs for incoming freshmen in August, and some of the many outdoors trips that occur during your semesters at Homewood. I was accepted as a hiking leader this past fall, so I will be leading hiking trips a few weekends a semester during the rest of my time at Hopkins. I was also selected as a pre-orientation leader, so if you sign up for one of those trips (which I HIGHLY suggest) you might be with me!
DSAGA: DSAGA stands for the Diverse Sexuality and Gender Alliance (essentially like the GSA, or gay straight alliance, at most high schools.) At Hopkins, DSAGA meets once a week and works to promote awareness of diverse sexuality and gender issues throughout campus. I was involved with the GSA at my high school, and am continuing to show my support as an ally through DSAGA.
Student Activities Admissions Board: SAAB is the team behind all the resources of Hopkins Interactive which are generally directed at prospective students. When I came to Hopkins, SAAB was one group I absolutely knew I wanted to be part of. I love Hopkins and am always thrilled to talk to prospective students. This year, I am blogging for the class of 2015 (with a bunch of other great freshmen!) so that prospective students can get the inside perspective of what it's really like to be a first year Hopkins student.
My Dorm Life: I live in Wolman 7 (b)east, which is a fantastic dorm! Though we are not on the freshman quad like the other residences, at Wolman we have the luxuries of our own bathrooms, our own kitchens, and our own air conditioning. I live in a suite which consists of two double rooms, so there are four of us in total to share the kitchen and the bathroom. Wolman is convenient not only to the library which is right across the street and the Barnes and Noble on the opposite side of the block, but also to Charles Street Market (Char-Mar) which is directly under our building. Have a late night snack craving? No problem! We have the best assortment of fine foods right there!
