Caroline Strapp is the Yearbook Managing Editor at UConn’s Nutmeg Publishing, a position she stepped into this past winter. She also works seasonally as a ski instructor at Ski Sundown. Caroline is a member of Kappa Alpha Theta where she has held two positions, the Philanthropy Chair and (currently) the Graphics Chair.
Lots of small things! My favorite tradition is probably Mountain Day. For a fond memory… It’s a tie between getting a lunch table with your best friends, and dance practice with Ms. Soule and all my teammates.
This is such a tough question… I think Ms. Soule gets the win for this one. She was also my advisor and dance teacher (7th-12th grade!) and was always around for guidance, creative inspiration, and a smile. She made the dance studio a place equal parts creative, comfortable, and challenging, a balance that for me fostered a lot of growth.
Mr. Barker’s Graphic Publication (aka the yearbook) was my favorite class. It was the perfect combination of my favorite subjects and Mr. Barker is a great teacher, his class has such great energy.
The dance studio, hands down.
Walker’s gave me the space to find out who I am and to become a strong version of that person. Walker’s also challenged me academically but in a way that to this day makes me want to learn and be the best I can be.
Use your voice and be authentic.
My favorite job so far has been working as a ski instructor. I also got to design the season’s staff sweatshirt. I founded (alongside my best friend Isabel) the BB Bulletin my senior year of Walker’s. I can speak a little bit of Italian.
