I Found My Niche at Colorado College
Student Name: Katherine Beard
School: Colorado College
Major: Film and Media Studies
Hi everyone! My name is Katherine Beard (she/her/hers), and I am a junior at Colorado College. I am a Film and Media Studies major with minors in Spanish and Journalism and an emphasis in Computer Science. I am sort of all over the board!
CC is unlike any other school. We use the block plan which means taking one class for 3.5 weeks at a time… Read my Niche blog post, “All About the Block Plan from a Colorado College Student” about it to learn more!
I am super involved on campus, working as a photographer for the student newspaper, holding a position as VPO of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, and working as Photo Editor for the Colorado College Outdoor Journal!
I have gotten to explore many states in the Southwest U.S. and even take a class in NYC! There are endless opportunities to explore and try new things, from climbing to hiking to skiing/snowboarding. I had never been camping or backpacking before coming to CC, but these are two of my favorite weekend activities now!
If you want to connect with me and all of my adventures, my Instagram is @katherine.beard and @katherinebeardphotography!
