Blog: Nicoletta '15 Found What She Was Looking for in a College

NAME Ariana Nicoletta ’15

HOMETOWN Staten Island, N.Y.

AREAS OF STUDY Double chemistry and English major in the premed program

WHY SHE CHOSE HOLY CROSS “I looked for three important characteristics throughout my college search: a small community, rigorous and challenging academics, and the chance to feel like I was a part of a family rather than a school. I was rewarded by having all of these at Holy Cross.”

ACTIVITIES “When I am not studying, I am either singing in the College Choir, assistant stage managing this year’s upcoming production of ‘Sweeney Todd,’ acting for a project in Alternate College Theatre (the student-run theater group), swimming, running, writing short stories, reading, speaking Italian and laughing and relaxing with my friends.”

WHAT SHE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “Having a successful freshman year, by which I mean doing well in classes, participating in amazing co-curricular activities, and having fun with friends.”

WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “Writing is one of my passions and because after spending only a few weeks at Holy Cross, I am in love with it already.”
