Style Advisor: Nicole Russell

avatar School: Bates College Hi everybody! My name is Nicole and I was born and raised in Boca Raton, Florida. Following my high school graduation. I decided to make the trek to the Northeast to attend Bates College in Lewiston, Maine. It was a completely different experience from what I was used to, but totally worth it! I am currently getting ready for my fourth year at Bates. I have been playing both volleyball and tennis for the past three years, but when I am not on the court, I love decorating, designing, and redesigning my dorm room, especially since I spend most of my time inside during the long winter months! I love the beach; I am crazy about my family, and love to laugh at any joke. Stay tuned for my next blog entry!
