Allison Zhou, Stamps Scholar

Stamps Scholar Allison Zhou

High school and hometown: Westview High School in Portland, Oregon

My biggest academic accomplishment so far: Receiving the Stamps Leadership Scholarship and being admitted to the Robert D. Clark Honors College.

My academic interests include: Chemistry and ethnic studies, but I definitely want to explore different fields of study. The best part of being in the honors college is I'm guaranteed to explore a variety of academic fields during my time at the UO

What I like to do for fun: Hiking, shopping, traveling with my sisters, and sometimes just sitting on the couch and watching a good movie

People might be surprised to know: I have a severe case of wanderlust

The one thing I’m most nervous about: How I'm going to wake up on time for my 8:30 a.m. classes

The one thing I’m most excited about: Meeting new people and taking classes in subjects I didn't get to in high school

I chose Oregon because: I've been a proud Oregon Duck since the day I was born

Scholarships I've received include: Stamps Leadership Scholarship

When I think of Oregon: I think "Home"

The one key piece of rain gear I must bring to campus: Boots, because they're functional and fashionable

The thing about college I'm most looking forward to is: Studying abroad
