Flynn Vickowski, class of 2014 and double major in Neuroscience and Behavior and Spanish, spent the past summer studying Spanish and interning in a therapeutic riding barn in Cordoba, Argentina. She’s currently crafting her senior thesis, which explores the importance of the tail in Anolis carolinesnsis for controlling in-air stability. In addition to conducting research in the Gary Gillis Research Lab, Flynn is the Captain of the Hunt Seat Riding Team and a member of Mount Holyoke’s performance belly-dance club, RAQS MHC. What she likes best about her home campus is that “MHC treats each student as an independent thinker and provides them with a level of resourcefulness, freedom, and responsibility not found at many other schools,” and she is “very proud of the women that this school fosters and what these women have and will accomplish upon graduation.” Flynn has her sights set on continued study: she has applied to PhD programs at Cambridge and Oxford Universities as well as for a Fulbright Award to study in Chile.
