Senior Snapshot: Lindsay Garten

The Nine Ways of Knowing has decided to profile some of the amazing women of the class of 2013… and we’re so sad to see them leave!! If you’d like to be featured on the blog or know someone who should definitely be profiled, fill out our tip form or email us at

Name: Lindsay Garten
Hometown: Baltimore, MD
Major: Environmental Science

What are you involved in?
Several SGA committees such as Sustainable Initiatives Consulting Board and Constitutional Review Committee.

Guilty pleasure?
Since I live in 110, I’m above Chipotle and Five Guys, so they’re become my guilty pleasures 🙂

Favorite memory from Barnard?
Not sure if I can pinpoint a favorite memory, but if I had to then it would probably either be picking up my cap and gown this year or the feeling of relief I had when I turned in my thesis proposal.

Biggest regret of college?
Definitely that I didn’t study abroad. I really wish that I had taken the initiative to apply to Reid Hall in Paris.

Biggest leap of faith during college?
Probably creating this blog. It was really intimidating as a sophomore transfer student to create a new club on campus, but in the end the club ended up becoming an SGA recognize group and the blog took off!

What will you miss?
Definitely being able to sleep in late when I don’t have class in the morning! It will be difficult to wake up early everyday next year when I have a job.

What won’t you miss?
Working on my thesis, but seriously I won’t miss final exams (they’re the worst!)

Favorite place on or off campus
Definitely the Diana Center would be my favorite place on campus.

In 5 words or less, what’s next?
Hoping to find a job

Who will play you in the biopic of your life?
Not really sure. Ask me over the summer when my brain isn’t fried from working on my thesis.
