Rose Levenson

 Harriet Newhall Fellow


Rose Levenson, class of 2016, majors in Psychology and Education. After returning from her junior spring semester abroad in Jerusalem as a fellow of the pioneer cohort of the Nachshon Project, Rose delved back into her study of self-directed learning and progressive education.  As a senior, Rose is excited to be working with her advisor and mentor, Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology and Education Amy Grillo on both her senior thesis and a seminar on self-directed learning.  After her upcoming graduation in May 2016, Rose will be pursuing graduate studies and fellowships in the fields of Social Work, Education, Non-Profit Management, and Jewish Professional Leadership.  

Rose currently volunteers at Book and Plow Farm at Amherst College and is a religious school teacher at Beit Ahavah, the Reform Synagogue of Northampton, MA. In her final semester, she is interning with both URJ Crane Lake Camp and the Foundation for Jewish Camp. On campus, she has been involved in musical ensembles and the varsity squash team. Rose continues to be inspired by walks along Upper Lake and culinary adventures in the Pioneer Valley—thanks to its many restaurants.
