Beatrix Bondor, a member of the Class of 2023, is one of two students awarded this year’s George B. Wood Legacy Junior Prize. The prize is awarded to members of the senior class in recognition of exceptional academic achievement during junior year.
Bondor, a member of New College West, is an English concentrator pursuing certificates in European Cultural Studies, French language and culture, and creative writing (poetry). For her senior thesis, she is writing a collection of poems, advised by Michael Dickman, lecturer in creative writing and the Lewis Center for the Arts. The collection will tell the story of Virginia’s founding period and cultural collisions.
Bondor is a member of the Behrman Undergraduate Society of Fellows, a group of juniors and seniors who are committed to the study of humanistic inquiry meet formally once a month during term to discuss and debate matters of common interest in the company of a few members of the faculty and distinguished guests.
Outside of the classroom, Bondor is also co-chair of Orange Key student tour guides, a campus visit ambassador with the Office of Admission, managing editor of the Nassau Literary Review, and a member of the Pre-Law Society.
