Meet Bridget

Where are you from?

 I’m from Greenwich, Connecticut.

What made you choose Taft?

I chose Taft because of the vibrant community I saw on my revisit day. Everyone seemed so happy, and I knew I wanted to go there. 

What activities do you participate in on campus?

I’m a school monitor, dorm monitor, co-head of Red Ink, co-head of the Sexual Assault Awareness Prevention Club (SAAP), and writer for Global Journal. I play varsity field hockey and captain varsity squash and lacrosse. 

What has been your favorite class so far at Taft?

My favorite class so far at Taft was my Upper Mid-English class with Mr. Magee. It was my favorite because we had great class discussions, and I improved my writing skills so much. We read interesting books, and I loved my classmates.

What is your favorite spot on campus?

My favorite spot on campus is the Jig because everyone hangs out there after assemblies and at night. Also, the food is great, and I recommend the bacon, egg, and cheese on toast with a hashbrown and the special seasoning!

What has been your most memorable Taft moment?

My most memorable Taft moment has been Super Sunday. It is much fun because the entire school comes together to play field games and tug-of-war, and everyone is covered in paint at the end. It’s a great event that brings the entire community together, and everyone is so happy.  

What do you love most about Taft?

I love the community that Taft has. Everyone is so kind to each other, and we all know we have a place on campus. 

What does it mean to be a Rhino?

Being a Rhino means embracing the entire community with open arms and supporting one another. It also means learning from each other and your mistakes and striving to become a better person, student, and Rhino.
