Classroom

Carlin Hudson has excelled in the classroom during her time at Yale. She is an applied math major with a 3.82 grade-point average. She interned a Credit Suisse in equity research last summer and before that at an energy start up in San Francisco. In addition, she is the head IM secretary for Berkeley College at Yale and a member of YSAAC and the Kiphuth Leadership Academy.

Character

Hudson suffered a season-ending knee injury in the first game of her sophomore season but worked hard to return to full strength for the 2016 season. She was rewarded by starting all 16 games. As a testament to her leadership and character, she was elected as the captain of the 2017 Yale women’s soccer team. At Yale, there is only one captain for each varsity sport.

Community

Hudson has been an active part of the New Haven and Yale communities. She volunteers with the Boys & Girls Club of New Haven where she has helped direct an after-school sports program to foster teamwork in inner-city youth. In addition, she planned and executed the Yale Women in Leadership “Women Empowering Women” Conference, which had more than 250 attendees, two keynote speakers and 13 panels.

Competition

Hudson has anchored the Yale defense since the day she arrived. In her career, she has started 37 of the 38 games in which she has played and earned All-Ivy recognition in both of the seasons she was healthy (honorable mention in 2014 and second-team in 2016). As a freshman, she played all 710 minutes in seven Ivy games, often being the opponent’s top offensive player. In 2016, she earned second-team All-Ivy recognition after playing 1,483 of a possible 1,502 minutes. This season, she has helped the Bulldogs to a 5-0 start to the season, the best in over a decade.
