Robin Spiess
College student (who needs some sleep), writer (who needs more time), and traveler (who needs to see the world)

Robin Spiess is a current student at Princeton University. She is enrolled in the Woodrow Wilson School of Public Policy and International Affairs and is pursuing certificates in Creative Writing and in Values and Public Life. Her passion for politics has directed her in her pursuit of a future in law, and has encouraged her active membership in the Whig-Cliosophic Political Society, the College Republicans, and the Pre-Law Society on her campus. She is also an avid writer, and as such she writes for the Princeton Traveler Magazine and serves as a copy-editor for both the Princeton Traveler and The Daily Princetonian. She is an active member of both Princeton's QuestBridge Scholars Society and its Hidden Minority Council, for which she respectively serves as President and as a member of the Outreach Committee. As a junior she began working as a peer academic adviser, a position in which her main goal has been to help freshmen adjust to life at Princeton, and she will continue serving in this role throughout her senior year. Robin also works two part-time jobs at the Frist Welcome Desk and the Architecture Library on her campus. She loves dogs, New Orleans cuisine, and travel.
