Rachel Dinh, C ‘17

“The dating scene is definitely better during exams. Tips? Cuter boys come in around midterms and finals, because then it’s not just the nerds, like me, here.”

Allison Bachner, C ‘16

“My dream job is to work for the English Premier League. I’m going to get a piece of paper that says "Wharton" on it. So I think that should help. I’m studying here instead of Huntsman because the environment is too asshole–y.”

Andrew “Zero” Witherspoon, W ‘18

 “I’m a mechanical engineering major. My partner and I made a laser–cut press–fit racecar. Press–fit means that there are no adhesives used, so everything is cut to a thousandth of an inch so that the parts fit together perfectly. I’m running into some issues right now because the axels won’t turn.”

Ros Shinkle E ‘18

“The dating scene here? Um, there are a lot of APES guys here.“      

Seema Patel, C ‘16

“The only thing inspiring me at this point are the dirty carpets and the smell of feet.“

Sufyan Dabbous, W ‘18

“I am most grateful for the fact that Mark’s is open until 3 and Axis is open 24/7.”

 Keren Murillo, C '16

“After midnight, the weirdest people come in. There’s a man in Mark’s with literally piles of books and paper and there’s a guy who looks like the grandpa from Up who strolls around. There’s a man with one leg that chills here, too.”

Alexy Abelanet, C ‘15

“The dating scene down here isn’t great. Probably because talking out loud is really frowned upon.” (Ed. note: Jeez, I can take a hint.)
