Lucas Gimbel is a Freshman at Yale University. He previously attended Manhattan’s Collegiate School where he wrote avidly for the Collegiate Journal, and participated in the school’s Symbol’s Task Force –– a committee charged with examining how symbols from the school’s nearly four hundred year history fit with its current mission and values. He regularly volunteers at the Lenox Hill Neighborhood House. In the future, Lucas hopes to study the humanities –– with an eye to history and literature. His favorite novel is Lampedusa’s The Leopard, and he is reading Robert Caro’s Master of the Senate.
