Leslie Peard ’13

Hometown: Atlanta, GA

Major(s)/Minor(s): Biochemistry/Math

What clubs/activities are you involved in on campus? I am involved with Career Service’s Internship and Opportunity Initiative program, First-Year Orientation Committee and Kappa Delta Sorority.

How are you involved in the Lexington community? I volunteer regularly at the Rockbridge Free Clinic.

What are some of your other hobbies/interests? Baking

Favorite weekend activity? Going on drives with my friends out into the country, especially in the Spring.

Favorite thing about Lexington?  I love that it is so different than Atlanta as such a small town.  It has an ambiance that just makes it such a nice break from the city.  I think it is the perfect place to be for four years.  It also has a foam henge and safari petting zoo within half an hour.

What’s your favorite W&L memory? I would have to say dancing with Cadavers in the Kappa Delta kitchen.

What’s the best encounter you’ve had with a faculty or staff member? Last Spring Term, after finishing Chem 112, I received a cryptic email from my professor Dr. Pleva telling me that he needed to see me in his office at some point that week.  I of course thought there must be something wrong, but instead he just wanted to chat about chemistry and give me a Chemistry department T-shirt, which of course said “I live for lab.” It was classic.
