#TerrierTuesdays: Caroline Olesky (CGS‘20, CAS‘22)
Weekly social media series focuses on students who are making an impact in, and out of, the classroom
During the summer months, BU Today is revisiting some of the past year’s favorite stories. This week, we feature the weekly #TerrierTuesdays social media series, which focuses on students making an impact in, and out of, the classroom.
Meet Caroline Olesky (CGS’20, CAS’22), a Californian turned Bostonian. After spending a gap semester in Maine and visiting Boston as she grew up, she fell in love with the city and the opportunities BU has to offer. For Caroline, it was all about discovering new experiences. She found her voice as she left suburbia and launched her fashion blog just before beginning her BU journey in @BUCGS’s London program. Since then, she’s learned what it takes to work with brands in a professional environment.
Currently, Caroline is competing with the BU snowboarding team for the first time and finds motivation by leaning on her Kappa Alpha Theta (@bostonkao) sisters, whom she says are the most intelligent women she’s met. She also works at the Community Service Center as a @FYSOP leader and as an Alternative Service Breaks coordinator. Service has helped define her college experience through her passion to educate others about sustainable service. After graduation, the political science major hopes to continue her stride and work in public policy—although she has thought about getting a master’s degree (double Terrier, anyone?). Her advice to her fellow Terriers: “Take advantage of every opportunity. Ask your professors about research opportunities. And don’t forget to thank the people who got you here.”
