Name: Magdalena Raska Housing Community: School House

I’m Magdalena Raska, a ’20 from Morristown New Jersey. I’m a biology major, with a possible music minor. I’ve been playing violin for 12 years and it’s something I’m really passionate about. On campus I’m also involved in the Christian Union, service trips through Aquinas House, shadowing at DHMC, and several School House committees. I’m hoping to join the varsity equestrian team next term after a year off due to an injury. After shadowing last summer, I’m tentatively leaning towards cardiology as a speciality. In addition to my academic interests I love to travel and most of my family is still in the Czech Republic so we visit them very often! I’m looking forward to doing microbiology research on Svalbard this summer with a group of Czech university students.
