Samantha Chaplin ’10


Where are you from?

Long Island, New York.

Did you always know you wanted to come to Smith?

I always knew that when I found the perfect school, I'd know immediately. And that's what happened when I visited Smith.


Who gets the most face time with you?

My best friends, Chris Geary and Nuni Borenstein.

When was the last time you wore a dress?

I'm actually wearing a dress right now. Over a unitard!

What are you reading now?

I'm reading Miranda July's book of short stories, No One Belongs Here More Than You.

Do you eat fast food?

I love Taco Bell. It's a family tradition to go probably once a year or so.

What do you miss most about home?

I miss my sister, she's probably the most awesome person I've met in my life thus far. But it's okay because hopefully she'll be a member of the class of 2012.

What is your favorite movie?

Showgirls is my favorite movie of all time.

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

It's summer, so I have a lot of free time. I would probably go shop for sneakers at Bodega or Karmaloop.

What is your favorite wall hanging in your room?

My collection of Beyoncé posters.

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

Probably a mash-up of all three.

What annoys the heck out of you? 

Writing papers.

Who are your role models?

The cast of Paris is Burning.

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

Have more house parties...and invites us. Please?
