ELEANOR (NELL) BRIGGS '15
Nell is a 100 FLIER and 200 FREESTYLER from CONCORD, MA! Concord is a small town where many famous people have called home and where turning points in our nation's history have began. Henry David Thoreau lived at Walden Pond in Concord which was inspiration for later literary works. Concord was home to Ralph Waldo Emerson, Louisa May Alcott (Little Women), Nathaniel Hawthorne (The Scarlet Letter), and Steve Carell (The Office, etc). It was also the site of the first battle in the Revolutionary War (The Battle of Lexington and Concord, anyone?!)...Not bad for a small town, right??
Academic Interests: Undecided x 3
Fun Fact: Nell's middle name is Doubledee...it was her great-grandmother's maiden name and is her father's and grandfather's middle name!
Favorite Dessert: Strawberry Shortcake and Ice Cream...she has tried every Ben & Jerry's flavor and likes Chunky Monkey the best
If Nell was stranded on a deserted island she would want ice cream with her (as long as she can have a freezer as well).
