Hello! My name is Chelsie Batten. I’m currently a junior at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC. Of course, I’m a math major, but I am also receiving a minor in Chemical Physics. I’ve lived in a small town in the eastern part of North Carolina my whole life. I have an older brother and a younger sister making me – the middle child.
Last summer I studied abroad in London – for the most part – and I spent some time in Dublin and Edinburgh, as well as a few other places in England. It was an amazing experience. As much as I will miss being abroad this summer, I am very excited about the REU program at UNCA and feel that it will be as beneficial for me as my previous summer experience. I think Asheville is going to be a wonderful place to spend the summer!
I'm excited to meet all of you!
