Sophie Goldsmith ’24 smiling

Hi! My name is Sophie Goldsmith (she/her), and I am a senior at Amherst College. I currently live in Atlanta, but grew up in Tampa, FL. I’m a biology and French double major, and am on the pre-med track. I am the president of Amherst’s Democrats club, am on the Hillel e-board, and participate in the Outing Club and the water polo team. In my free time, I love to read, do crossword puzzles, crochet, and run marathons.

This year, I will complete my final few major requirements, finish up pre-med requirements, study for the MCAT, write a French thesis, and train for and run a marathon. I will apply to some fellowships for post-graduation, and think about life after Amherst while trying to savor every moment I have left here.

I would love to get in touch with anyone who is interested in Amherst. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me about classes, being Jewish at Amherst, STEM research at Amherst, double majors, or any other questions at
