Hi Team! The final gnotable gnomie of the 2016-2017 school year is me (Isabel Mendia, DC ’18), the writer of this very blog! Davenport is one of my favorite places in the world. I’ve been an Aide here since October of my freshman year, have been a Dive Worker since my freshman spring, and have been the Davenport theater liaison since one of my first conversations with Barbara Munck that same year. I have directed the Davenport Holiday Play three years in a row, and this year was a co-writer of the original “musical” The Gnome Who Stole Christmas. Next year, I’ll be one of the inaugural members of the first coed Cottage in Davenport history!
When not spending all of my time in the Dive, the Dport Dining Hall, or reading in the Dport Courtyard when the weather is nice, I am probably working on a Yale theater production or doing my radio show for WYBC-Yale Radio.
Thanks for sticking around and see you in the fall for more introductions to the special people that make up our college!
