Favorite food in commons: the meal that I am most excited about these days is the mac and cheese. It is very cheesy and very delicious. I am also a big fan of carrots and green beans and usually they will have these on the same day as the mac, so they go together quite well and make me quite happy.
Favorite class taken at Bates: Difficult to say...but right now I am taking "Field Geology of Maine," and it is definitely in the top 5. We've gone on lots of field trips (kayaking on the coast, hiking in the White Mountains...) and have learned a lot about rocks. The professor is also really enthusiastic so the class is a lot of fun.
