Graduating Seniors 2016


Colleen Murphy: Rowing my own boat

Whenever things seemed impossible, I leaned on the biggest lesson I’ve learned over the past four years at The Hatchet: I can’t control everything, so I must row my own boat.


Zach Montellaro: To infinity and beyond

The Hatchet has been an institution I have poured literal blood, sweat and tears into. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.


Nora Princiotti: Playing for keeps

When I got hired as The Hatchet’s sports editor, I knew what I was signing up for. What I didn’t know, though, was why I was signing up for it.


Sarah Blugis: Well, I guess this is growing up

Looking back on my time at The Hatchet, I think I finally understand what it means to grow up, and to grow as a person.


Sam LaFrance: In screaming color

The Hatchet gave me an instant family on campus when it didn’t know how badly I needed it.


Desiree Halpern: I’m not crying, I’m just photographing onions

Sarah Mann:Learning to focus

Brandon Lee: A different kind of growth spurt

Each and every new responsibility I took under my wing was just another inch to eagerly tickmark on my bedroom door with a Sharpie. I have everyone at this institution to thank for each one.


Grace Koçlar:Saying goodbye is all too easy

I’m more worried about how to say my goodbye than the goodbye itself. The goodbye is easy. I always know it’s coming. Welcome to the life of a TCK – a Third Culture Kid.
