Chair of Community Engagement: Natalie Guarino ’21
Hi all, my name is Natalie Guarino! I am from central Massachusetts but spent so much of my childhood in Maine, I just had to end up at Colby! I am a Psychology major and Creative Writing minor, but my Colby experience has been most largely defined by my freshman year first semester spent as a GES Dijon program member. I have never been involved in SGA until my senior year during which I will be the Executive Board Chair of Community Engagement, but my time spent working for the Colby Volunteer Center in past years has prepared me well for this role. 2020 has been a turbulent year that has challenged us as a country, as a college, and as individuals. I look forward to engaging with the Colby and Waterville communities this year in ways that promote critical thinking and allow for a range of voices to be heard.
