Wash U’s U.S. Figure Skating Champs, Taxidermists, and Travel Cello Designers

But statistics, as we have long suggested, are boring and offer little insight into the makeup of an incoming class. We always root on universities that offer more specifics — by way of examples — about admitted students. Wash U’s admissions office did just that this year. As Wash U’s admissions office reports, “Now, a little more info about the incredible students admitted to the WashU Class of 2023! Among you are: National Student Poet for the Southeast; recipient of the Congressional Gold Medal; US Figure Skating double gold medalist; T-Mobile Social Entrepreneurship Award winner; top 100 chess player; world class Rubik’s Cube professional speed solver; nationally ranked triathlete; designer of a travel cello that meets FAA regulations; founder of the National Student Table Tennis Association.”

Wash U’s extensive list continues, “Earner of the most active merit badges in the history of Boy Scouts (138 merit badges); designer of an app to help students learn math; performer on The Voice China; Taxidermist; founder of a registered non-profit organization; professional esports athlete; Intel Foundation Young Scientist; member of the Irish national softball team; world champion gymnast; professional Scrabble player; YouTuber; Team USA synchronized skater; nationally ranked debater; national jump roping champion; and contributor to The Student Scientist online publication.”

Congratulations to all students who earned admission to Wash U’s Class of 2023!
