Meet Jacqlyn Blatteis

In an effort to share my experience as an older undergrad at Brown University, I am introducing some of the people that I spend time with here in Rhode Island. I am doing so via the same podcast feed that I launched in 2017 when I did a series of interviews with different members of the ski community. You can find it by searching for “Noah Hoffman” wherever you podcast, or you can follow along via SoundCloud.

The first person that I’d like you to meet is Jacqulyn Blatteis. Jac is a traditionally aged senior from Los Angeles, California. She is graduating from Brown in two weeks with a degree in neuroscience. She is the co-director of a student group called HOPE (Housing Opportunities for People Everywhere), and she is a remarkable human being. I hope you enjoy getting to know her as much as have!

I would love to hear your feedback about this conversation and this idea of sharing my experience through the people in my life. Please email me at or get in touch via Facebook or Instagram.
