Michelle Hunter '24


Major: SPIA
College: Whitman
International Experience: SPIA Program at University of Cape Town
Location: Cape Town, South Africa

I’m currently a senior in the SPIA department, with a certificate in East Asian Studies. I’m from Newark, NJ. I studied abroad at the University of Cape Town in South Africa in Spring 2023. I took a range of courses from Psychology, to Literature, to Politics, while also working on the SPIA Task Force independent work on social protection. I also got the chance to travel to Botswana for research and stopped at Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe as well. I enjoyed all of the different sights, nature, history, and culture that was gathered in Cape Town and the independence that I was able to develop abroad. On campus I work at the Frist Welcome Desk (come say hi!) and I am also a CLA for Whitman! I enjoy going to sporting events (an avid football and volleyball fan!) and hanging out with my friends as well.

Student organization(s) I'm a part of at Princeton:
Community Life Advisors (Whitman), and Dorobucci Dance Company
