Eli Kaufman ’15

EliKaufmanHeadshot1smallerName:  Eli Kaufman

Class:  2015

Hometown:  Toledo, Ohio

Major:  Communications and Media Studies
Minor:  Psychology

Interests:  Both watching and playing sports, meeting new people, and music (hip-hop, Top 40, and starting to get into country). I’m a huge fan of board games, particularly Settlers of Catan. I’ve done a lot of traveling, from Nicaragua with Goucher’s Hillel for an Alternative Break and two trips to Israel to Jamaica, Mexico, Italy, and China.

Involvement on Campus:  Hillel (President 2012-2013); Ambassador; Orientation Committee; Intramural Basketball; Flag Football; Ultimate Frisbee; Club Baseball; Academic Honor Board; Student Government Association (Class of 2015 VP); Psychology Research Team focusing on positive psychology and feng shui

Why I Love Goucher:  Goucher is one big family. Professors are always looking out for you and they want you to succeed. The students are so nice and friendly. It is not uncommon to receive three hugs, two high fives, and a fist bump on the way to class.

Ambitions:  I want to go to graduate school and own an advertising and PR agency. I would love to live in DC for a bit, but I think I will find myself back in the Midwest when I settle down.
