New Student Spotlight: Ray Volkin ’21

Happy August, Honorites! This week we’re spotlighting Ray Volkin, an incoming freshman Biochemistry major from North Attleboro, Massachusetts. Learn more about her below!


What are you passionate about? What do you love to do?

I love nature and photography – you can find me carrying my camera on hikes through the mountains! I enjoy playing music, whether it be piano or guitar or even the harmonica. I also love getting outside and getting some exercise on the fields playing field hockey.

What are you most excited for about Ithaca College?

Getting involved in lots of student organizations, meeting new people, and learning new things from my classes.

What have you been up to this summer?

Orientation was a lot of fun! I will be heading to South Carolina and hitting the beach! My favorite memory was when I went to this huge botanical garden in Virginia because I love looking at plants.

We’re always looking for interesting students to highlight in our Spotlight series.
