Caroline Coen '25

Computer Science (A.B.)

Hello everyone! My name is Caroline Coen, and I'm from Pacific Grove, CA (a small town on the Central Coast a couple hours south of the Bay Area). I am majoring in Computer Science (AB) and earning certificates in Italian and Humanistic Studies. I love exploring the outdoors, a passion I pursue on campus with both Princeton Running Club and Princeton Cycling Club. I am also involved with Princeton Christian Fellowship and enjoy sharing my love of Princeton as an Orange Key Tour Guide. In my free time, I enjoy baking banana muffins and reading good books. I love hearing people's stories and am so excited to meet you this year.

What's a favorite memory from your first year at Princeton?
I loved bonding with my friends from the Humanities Sequence on our various field trips to museums and theaters in New York City.

What's a Princeton class that has shaped the way you think and why?
SPA 207S: Studies in Spanish Language and Style. I took this course in Summer 2022 with Princeton in Spain. The course focused on art history, and we studied paintings, sculptures, and architecture from Spain in the early modern period. For the first time I learned to view art and architecture not only as a form of creativity but also as a lens into the cultural and societal complexities of an era. I have learned to appreciate art as I appreciate literature, and I will never walk around an art museum or through the streets of a city in the same way.
