Ross Student Goes to Bates
Amagansett resident Alexandra E. Strada, daughter of Robert Strada and Michelle Murphy-Strada, and a 2006 graduate of Ross School, is among the 518 students starting at Bates College this fall. The Maine-based college was founded in 1855 by abolitionists and it has always made strides for diversity. On top of having a 10-1 student-faculty ratio and the ability to study abroad, Bates is regarded as one of the top liberal arts schools in the United States.
