Wheaton College Norton, Massachusetts

Nicole T. D. Francis

Activities? I am currently the captain of Sole Step Team and treasurer of the Pre-Health society. I’m also a member of Black Students Association and the Distinguished Women of Color Collective.

Why Wheaton? I like the small student body population, because it’s easier to get to know those people within your year and make stronger bonds to last outside of Wheaton.

Favorite class? My favorite class so far has been Drugs and Behavior. In the course, we analyzed the history and societal consequences of drugs. My favorite professors are Professor Kalberg and Professor Lane from the Chemistry Department. They are amazing teachers and very easy to talk to. I wish I were in their class again.

Something interesting about me? Before I came to college, I was a majorette for seven years.

Favorite meal? Mac and cheese, baked pork chops and veggies.

Favorite concert? I think it had to be the Common concert last year during homecoming. His band was amazing and Common was so cool.

Most memorable news story? Barack Obama becoming president.

Favorite adventure? Getting lost in Boston after midnight in November freshman year with a close friend from home.
