Megan believes that the Ath is a high-water-mark of student life at CMC and looks forward to serving as an Athenaeum Fellow during her senior year. Megan, originally from Seattle, has spent time interning in New York and Washington, D.C., and hopes to be able to bring some speakers to the Ath using the contacts she made there. When she's not at the Ath, you can usually find Megan whipping up a scrumptious vegetarian meal in her kitchen in the student apartments, or possibly slaving away on another PPE paper in the computer lab.


Sarah is a dual major in government and literature, and will also complete the minor in Italian studies at Scripps College. In her free time she enjoys going to museums, people-watching, and eating sushi. This past summer Sarah interned at the U.S. Embassy in Rome. After graduation she hopes to enter the U.S. Foreign Service or pursue graduate study in Italian literature. Sarah hopes that the CMC community will enjoy this year's interesting and eclectic program.

Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum

The Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum was conceived as a place where students and faculty could gather for intellectual discourse in an intimate and relaxed setting and integrate their academic and social lives. Public programs are scheduled Monday through Thursday during the academic year and are publicized through the bi-weekly newsletter, The Fortnightly.

While events are primarily for students, the Athenaeum hosts lunches, dinners, and receptions for academic classes, student organizations, and official functions of the College.
