Aidan Clark
Hi, I'm Aidan! I study mathematics, computer science and classical languages. I think tensors are cool, and people should be less afraid of them. I'm also really interested in late Roman poetry, but have shamefully never finished The Aeneid.
Alex Jing
I am a third year CS major. I enjoy getting wrecked by all the fun CS stuff and then try to clear things up only to get wrecked again. When I am not getting wrecked, I enjoy long hikes, running and mint mojito. I recently picked up a fountain pen because I think we use keyboard way too much.
Alexander Hwang
Hey! Call me Alex. I enjoy introspecting, consuming/creating good stories, solving puzzles, and jamming on Spotify. Since childhood, one of my biggest dreams has been to have the ability to fly, but telekinesis or teleportation would be cool as well. You'll often find me wearing a straw hat. Say hello if you see me around! I'll most likely recognize you, but perhaps not by name.
