Eli (sadovnik), '17

Course 18

I was going to write a satirical bio about why I’m a Trump supporter (lolnope), but it turns out I’m too scared someone would take it seriously. That’s one thing you’ll learn about me if you know me well. I like to project this persona where the highest joy I get is in doing the most clever thing in whatever situation I’m in, regardless of what other people will think of me (I mean just look at this stupid, pretentious, self-reflective bio – this shit is supposed to be light-hearted). Ironically, in reality I’m just an asshole who wants people to think he’s smart. So think I’m smart. Please?

William (wqian94), '16

Course 6-3/18

Once upon a time (2012), in a land far, far away (Maseeh), a young then-freshman (yours truly) lived in a red brick castle (see above). For years he thought that college had everything he could ask for. Then, everything changed when the grades attacked. Only true family could save this lost soul, and when he needed them the most, benolds invited him into 2e.
Other than mixing references and being a general nerd (see: vidya games, anime, star trek, and CS jokes), I also like to confuse the unsuspecting with my history on 2e.
Anyways, I like to learn a bit of everything, so if you have something fun/interesting/cool/etc to share, count me in.
