Meet Maddy

A biology major from Washington, D.C.

STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS YOU’RE INVOLVED IN:

Alpha Omicron Pi, Alpha Chi Sigma, Rose Drama Club, Rock Climbing Club, and I've also done Swing Dance Club. I've held positions in AOII as Treasurer and Social/Activities Chair, which were some of the most fun and personal growth-inspiring things I've ever done. My extracurriculars are definitely how I've stayed sane at Rose. 

WHAT IS YOUR DREAM JOB?

Man, I have no clue. I've thought about genetically engineering bioluminescent cats or curating scientific exhibits or teaching or doing some kind of art...the world has too many cool things to just pick one, you know?

WHAT’S YOUR IDEAL WEEKEND?

Sleep, hang with friends, go on an adventure, get to do some chilling, repeat, and then get enough sleep for school on Monday. So about three or four days worth of things in one weekend...

STAR TREK OR STAR WARS?

Star Wars, but mostly because I've never seen Star Trek. 

WHAT IS THE NERDIEST THING YOU DO?

My phone's name is Nightwing, my iPad's name is Arsenal (but the old one was Roy Harper), my laptop's name is Alfred, and my bike's name was Batmobile. Also, I'd really like to be Lulu from League of Legends for Halloween one of these years, but first I need to find time to construct the costume. 

FAVORITE ICE CREAM FLAVOR?

So many choices...Ben and Jerry's Cinnamon Bun and Phish Food are both pretty phenomenal, but cookies and creme is almost never bad. 

WHAT’S THE BEST KEPT SECRET ON CAMPUS?

Love yourself or everything else falls apart. Does that count as a secret? Sleep, eat, shower, see your friends. 

WHY DID YOU WANT TO STUDY SCIENCE AT ROSE-HULMAN?

I originally came to Rose as a Chemical Engineering major because I didn't want to have to go to grad school. But biology is what I really wanted to do, so I switched. Rose's biology professors love us so, so much, and have the most incredible willingness to helps us learn and grow.
