Sophie Druffner ’19

Hi! What’s your name?

I’m Sophie from Dallas, Texas, and I’m a current junior in Vandy’s Class of 2019! I’m on track for the Applied Math Major, violin performance minor, completing the pre-med track (Y’all it’s FUN!), and a series of Honors Seminars as part of being a Cornelius Vanderbilt Scholar in the College of Arts and Sciences. Wow, I’m going to take a deep breath. I promise it’s not as crazy as it sounds; just a ton of walking across campus, but who doesn’t love well-toned calves? (Maybe I’ll love them once I actually have them…)

Outside of office hours, innumerable math proofs, and E flat major scales, I love dancing, game nights, and changing my hair. For the past two years, I’ve volunteered by teaching violin lessons weekly and playing at a nursing home once a month with people who are my second grandparents. I’ve also co-founded the Scholars Council, the student leadership arm of the Cornelius Vanderbilt Scholarship, now in its third year. I’m currently President of Sigma Phi Lambda, the Christian sorority on campus, directing the first-year outreach program for University Catholic next year, and a research assistant in the SyBBURE Undergraduate Research Program. I’m also extremely interested in the developing fields of narrative medicine and palliative care, and am looking into graduate program sin Community Psychology before (hopefully) medical school.

Things about me to know: I love bringing people together, introducing people to one another no matter how awkward it is, lovely coffee dates with lovelier people, and Dove dark chocolate more than anything except daily mass. 

Through this blog, I hope to tell you everything that everyone didn’t tell me! And lastly… friends, don’t be afraid to email me. Seriously. You can ask me anything about anything, including the weird things I’ll (probably) be talking about from biology class or whatever strange Catholic thing I might have mentioned. So hit me up and ask me anything! If I’m not a pre-law Theatre major, then I can find someone who is. :)
