Each month, the YU Observer aims to highlight some of the YU undergraduate students who have written articles for us over the course of the semester. For the May 2022 edition, the YU Observer is highlighting Sophie Frankenthal

Name: Sophie Frankenthal 

College: Stern College for Women

Major: Sociology Major and Biology Minor 

Year: Third

Favorite part of being on (or back on) campus? The social aspect of campus, as well as the ability to take part in campus events and opportunities. Broadway’s also a pretty cool perk. 🙂

What do you miss most about Zoom school? The flexibility to participate in class from anywhere in the world- and of course the ability to spend more time with my family (I live in Chicago).

Currently Reading: The Ghost Writer by Philip Roth 

Currently watching: A variety of different murder and cult documentaries.  

Coke or Pepsi? Not such a soda fan… 

Android or Apple? Android 

What’s a quote/thought/or piece of advice you have for your fellow students? “We spend so much of life forcing ourselves to walk in high heels, but at the end of the day- we’d all be a lot happier in slippers.”
