Last Call: Chanelle Adams

As the semester progresses at the speed of light, the senior class is beginning to make peace with that fateful day in May: Commencement. Until the class of 2015 leaves us, BlogDH wants to highlight all the interesting things they’ve been up to. To this end, we’re (re)starting the series Last Call, which features seniors reflecting on their experiences at Brown. Each featured senior will tag another senior for the next installment. Find this year’s other “Last Call” chain here and our RISD “Last Call” chain here.

People might know me as… that lady over there talking about the “core issues” in inappropriate settings.

In my time at Brown, I am most proud of… everything I cultivated in my life outside of Brown.

On a Friday night, you might find me… convincing my roommates to watch a creepy cult film, and then immediately falling asleep once we finally start the movie.

The best class/professor at Brown is… The Intimate State (Politics of the Family) with Prof Self. I took it with an amazing bunch of people and the course content helped shape my interest in using historical frameworks in activist spaces.

Three things you wish you knew freshman year:

  1. You don’t have to coordinate to eat dinner with 15 people every single night.
  2. Make friends with Professors ASAP because advising stops v. abruptly after the first year.
  3. Only take classes that are exciting to attend. If a class is boring, but the material looks good, just take the syllabus and nerd out over the readings during the summer.

Ratty vs. V-Dub? Rat-tay Galore

The best random thing you did in your time at Brown is… learned Contact Improv.

One thing you wish you had done… some sort of performance.

After graduation, you plan to… go back to Madagascar to do research.

What’s the hardest class you’ve taken at Brown? If you could do it over, would you still take it? CHEM. No, definitely not worth it.

What’s been the most rewarding extracurricular that you’ve been a part of during your four years? Why? Bluestockings, because cultivating and participating in intentional community is a priority of mine.

Sum up your thesis in one sentence, lolmythesis style. 

Malagasy medico-botanical knowledge does not need your validation.

One piece of advice for underclassmen?

Take care of yourself. Stop bragging about how many all-nighters you can do in a row and go to sleep… now!

Victor’s Question: Raven or Lizzie?

They’re both phony as hell. But I’ll go with Raven.
