Ego of the Week: Jason Karsh

Undergraduate Assembly chairman and College senior Jason Karsh loves Colorado, YouTube and *NSYNC. This Sphinx member lets us in on why those UA buses are so much fun and how John McCain made him lose his "lover." Street: What exactly is your role as chairman of the UA? JK: Essentially, I run a lot of meetings, sit on countless committees and represent undergraduates and UA projects to our administration as the "student voice." Street: Please explain this whole YouTube thing you started. JK: Well, I think I should start off by addressing what everyone's thinking right now - I didn't start YouTube.

College sophomore Preston Hershorn is something of a student government impresario, lending a hand as Social Planning and Events Committee (SPEC) Music Director and as member of the Nominations and Elections Committee (NEC). The Kansas (yes, Kansas!) native can also add employee of tennis star Martina Navratilova and Real World expert to his already impressive resume. Street: If the NEC and SPEC were to engage in a duel.

We asked Yasmin "everybody knows her" Radjy how to make friends and influence people. Street: Why do they call you "Big Pun?"

In The House

We give ourselves names in order to belong, in order to give ourselves a history. Although few Penn students are likely to be involved in any official street gang or mob activity, the need to create a family endures.
