Hi! My name is Rachel Smookler, and I am so excited to begin my SGB experience on the First Year Council. I am originally from Wilmington, DE, and in my free time, I love to run, thrift, listen to music (my favorite artists right now are Noah Kahan, Lizzie McAlpine, and Dominic Fike), read, and crochet. Outside of SGB, I am currently involved in RSA hall council, Pitt’s Women in Law club, and Pages of Lavender book club.

Which building on Pitt's campus would you be and why?

I would be the Hillman Library. I love coffee and books, and I like a mix of quiet, alone time and time spent talking with friends.

If you were chancellor of Pitt for a day, what is the first thing you would do?

If I was chancellor for the day, I would expand the availability of allergen safe options in the dining halls and at meal swap locations.

What is a question that is always on your mind?

Does everyone see colors the same? How would we know that the color blue looks the same to everyone?
