Sam '18

What activities are you involved in at Berwick?

I am involved in varsity soccer and varsity crew, as well as Berwick’s upper school musical. I am a head tour guide, a member of the SWAT (Student Wellness Advising Team), as well as acapella, peer tutoring, math team, mock trial, and drama club. I am also involved in some smaller singing groups on campus.

What is something that makes Berwick unique/special?

What drew me to Berwick my freshman year was the community that is here on campus. As a result of this community I have close relationships with my friends, of course, but I also have good relationships with my teachers and other faculty on campus. It fosters an environment that you truly cannot find in many other places in the world.

Why did you choose to come to (or stay at) Berwick?

I came to Berwick because I needed a more academic challenging environment than my other school options. Berwick certainly challenges me, both academically, and through sports and the arts. I can certainly say all of my classes through the years (and continuing now) have challenged me extensively.

Why do you like being a tour guide?

I really like being a tour guide, because I can share all my experiences about Berwick with others and help them see and experience what I do every day.
