14 Dec

Alexandra Frazier ’13

Hometown: Columbia, SC

Major(s)/Minor(s): English/Creative Writing

What clubs/activities are you involved in on campus? President, Panhellenic Council; Mock Convention Publications Committee Member; College Democrats Member; Design Editor, Ring Tum Phi; Model United Nations Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural Chair; Pi Beta Phi Member

How are you involved in the Lexington community? I’ve recently adopted a Little Sister through the United Way Big Brothers Big Sisters Program, and I frequently volunteer with Campus Kitchens and the Nabors Service League.

What are some of your other hobbies/interests? Traveling, reading and writing, dancing, spending time with my friends, cooking, and “finger painting” on my iPad

Favorite weekend activity? I have quite a few—Sunday brunch at the Bistro, lounging in bed on lazy Saturday mornings, having the time to actually cook for my friends and read the news, bonding with my apartment mates, taking the occasional trip to Charlottesville or DC… it’s wonderful to be able to unwind after a stressful week of classes!

Favorite thing about Lexington? The small town atmosphere and friendly vibe are probably my favorite things about the city. The speaking tradition seems to extend beyond the colonnade, and everyone is just so genuinely nice in town. I practically have surrogate mothers in a couple of the local shopkeepers!

What’s your favorite W&L memory? Orientation week. It was a blur, and honestly I don’t remember half of it, but it was quite possibly one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. The upperclassmen were exceptionally helpful when it came to navigating campus, and I made friends through the course of that week that I currently live with, rushed with, and will forever be friends with.

What’s the best encounter you’ve had with a faculty or staff member? The best encounter I’ve had with a faculty member was my spring term endangered plant science class with Professor Charles Winder. He made a biology class engaging for a group of non-science majors, and our class was spent outdoors instead of cooped up in a lab. Plus, his Dalmatian is precious!
