What’s a favorite memory from your first year at Princeton?
Outdoor Action! I had an amazing time on my hiking trip and made my first friends at Princeton!

What’s a Princeton class that has shaped the way you think and why?
COS 126, Computer Science: An Interdisciplinary Approach, was a challenging but eye-opening class for me. Not only did I learn how to code, but I also learned about the applications of computing and the skills needed to solve many of the problems in my classes and other areas of my life.

Hi! My name is Cristina and I'm from Princeton! Outside of classes, I am part of the Rehack subteam of the E-club, and I volunteer as an EMT at Princeton First Aid and Rescue Squad. As someone who has many interests outside of my major, such as economics, healthcare, and sustainability, I'd love to chat about how to make the most out of Princeton so you can explore all your academic and extracurricular interests, especially if your major has a lot of requirements. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions, whether it's related to academics or not! I'm excited to see you all around campus!
