Sarah Coburn ’07


Where are you from?

Waterbury, Conn.

Did you always know you wanted to come to Smith?

Not at all. But once I knew, I knew.


Who gets the most face time with you?

My co-workers. I work in a resource center in North Philadelphia and it is quickly taking over my life.

When was the last time you wore a dress?

Yesterday. It looked real nice tucked into my bike shorts during my commute to work.

What are you reading now?

Anna Karenina. It's book #2 on my life of "Books I Should Have Read as an English Lit Major But Never Did."

Do you eat fast food?

No, but I can eat food fast, if necessary.

What do you miss most about home?

Not paying rent. Free food. My cats.

What is your favorite movie?

Godard's Breathless.

If you suddenly had two hours of free time, what would you do?

Sleep, read, listen to NPR.

What is your favorite wall hanging in your room?

The Maltese flag. Represent!

Do you consider yourself an urban, suburban or rural person?

A mix of urban and rural. It's a real dilemma.

What annoys the heck out of you? 

New England weather. Drivers who don't give bicyclists the right of way. When my coffee gets cold. When there are no vegan options. When I can't help my clients because the social services system is build against them. The price of beer in NYC.

Who are your role models?

Gloria Steinem!

What single piece of advice would you give to President Christ?

Do everything and anything to maintain house community and stop putting suites in the houses!
