Victoria Escalante '22

Psychology
ve3@princeton.edu

My name is Vicky Escalante and I'm a senior from Chicago, IL. I am majoring in Psychology and on the pre-med track to pursue a career in the medical field. On campus I play club softball, am part of Princeton Latinos y Amigos, and volunteer with BigSibs, an organization that supports local Princeton elementary students. I also work at Campus Rec with group fitness and a research assistant in the psychology department. When I'm not studying or working I am usually rewatching Modern Family (I've seen all 11 seasons more than 3 times) or just hanging out in Frist. Feel free to reach out to me about classes, resources, social life, or anything else, I am always more than happy and available to chat! I'm very excited to meet all of you!

What’s a favorite memory from your first year at Princeton?
My favorite memory from my first year at Princeton is Deans Date during the winter semester. I remember submitting my Deans Date assignments with my friends and heading to the McCosh courtyard for the Deans Date celebration. It was really fun waiting in line for the winter hat and then getting in line for the food trucks while the marching band played music.

What’s a Princeton class that has shaped the way you think and why?
PSY 400 is a Princeton class that has shaped the way I think. This is because it allowed me to see how research can be used to understand how society works. It also gave me insight into why certain things happen and impact interactions.
