Senior Snapshot: Claire Bouchard

The Nine Ways of Knowing has decided to profile some of the amazing women of the class of 2015, 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, email us at

Name: Claire Bouchard
Hometown: Oyster Bay Cove, New York
Major: Philosophy of Language

What are You Involved In?
RA, Speaking Fellows, Senior Interviewer with Admissions

Guilty Pleasure?
Coffee. All of the coffee.

Biggest Leap of Faith During College?
There comes a time for every college student where they have to decide on a major. As a sophomore, this seems like the biggest decision of our lives and something that can dictate how the rest of our professional careers manifest themselves. This was also the time where I decided to create my own major: Philosophy of Language. Barnard encourages it’s students to unapologetically follow their dreams and for me, academically, that meant deviating from the status quo.

What Will You Miss?
The incredible conversations that occur on this campus and the amazing people with which they happen.

What Won’t You Miss?
The stress to always appear put together…

Favorite Place On or Off Campus?
Anywhere with coffee

In 5 Words or Less, What’s Next?
Time to see the world.

Midnight Breakfast or Orgo Night?
Midnight Breakfast. Always.

If you were a Morningside Heights Bar or Restaurant Which Would You Be?
I’d say Joe’s, but I don’t think that I’m hipster enough to pull that off.
