Out of Darkness Walk at Portsmouth!

Hey guys! It’s already been a month since school started! Lower year is going by so fast. I’ve been trying to spend a little more time working and doing other activities while still having fun with my friends!

So last Saturday the 27th, my best friend Meghana and I participated in the Walk for Suicide Prevention at Portsmouth, NH. It was hosted by Active Minds, an ESSO Club that mainly focuses on promoting healthy and friendly environment for students at Exeter. Around 40 people participated from our school, and we raised more than $2500 by selling awareness bracelets! It was a fun, relaxing walk for a great purpose! This was the first time Exeter participated in the walk as a team, and I hope this continues in the coming years.

Hey Guys! My name is Serena and I am an upper in Langdell Hall! I was born in Seoul, Korea but my family moved to Weston, MA a few years ago. My favorite thing about Exeter is the opportunities it offers for you to be your best self. Not only are you encouraged to take your previous commitments and passions to another level, Exeter also helps you step out of your comfort zone by exploring something new! One way Exeter does this is by offering fun, challenging classes in diverse topics. Some of the most interesting classes I've taken are Art and the State, Advanced Physics, and Faith and Doubt. Outside of classes, I'm involved in a lot of clubs and activities. I'm on the girls varsity squash team in winter term. I love everyone on my team and this past season has really helped me to get better as an athlete and also as a teammate! I also really love going to Current Events and International Relations club, Model UN, ESSO, the Council for Equity and Social Justice, and Philosophy club! My last two years at Exeter has been amazing and I'm looking to make the best out of my last two years, too!
