Austin Culver, Social
Class of 2012, Biomedical Engineering
As historian, I have to interact with Austin a lot. Mostly, I bug him every Saturday night/Sunday
morning to update the Google Calendar/plan the social events for the week. Thus, I’ve gotten to
know him rather well. He probably spends too much time in the rec lounge playing COD4: ModernWarfare; sometimes I find him playing at 5am. During these hours, I ask him if he has started his
BME problem sets due in four hours. His usual response is, “I’ll do it soon.” Somehow, I doubt him.
Despite his mass procrastination, Austin is a very dependable guy
if I ever want to throw arounda Frisbee, I know who I can ask. That, however, will not stop him from using his monstrous strength
to throw people into the snow. Don’t be fooled by this; Austin is a giant tedd

Brittany Zhang, Philanthropy
Class of 2013, Biology
Hola! I’m Brittany Zhang, but you can call me B
-Zhang! A member of the Class of 2013, I am yourenthusiastic, overly-social, and crazy philanthropy chair from Michigan. To show you just howenthusiastic I am, here are some instances last year that tell a bit about who I am. When running forphilanthropy chair, I talked to almost every person I could to see what the job was and what the jobcould potentially be. At Dance Marathon, I spent most of my time dancing with a man in a chickensuit. I was the MC for the Slivka Bachelor Auction, and during this auction, I did a dance to Lady
Gaga’s “Bad Romance” with your treasurer,
Jimmy Clifton. Check out those Facebook pics!
Anyway, I can’t wait to meet you freshman! Get excited for the best years of your life!

Derek Morris, IT
Class of 2012, Computer Science
When he came to Northwestern, Derek was covered in glossy, thick, dark brown fur, spoke noEnglish, and was an efficient and deadly predator. His floor-mates, awash with both pity for hisdegenerate state and a healthy respect for his razor-sharp incisors, taught him to speak, dresshimself, and develop websites. Derek is now a successful and happy computer science major in theengineering school with a strong interest in cognitive science and only the occasional glimpse of hisferal nature is apparent to the casual onlooker.

Jen Dotrong, Historian
Class of 2013, Biomedical Engineering
Well, I know Jen is going to destroy me regardless of what I write, so I'll go for broke. Jen is famousfor being the angriest and shortest member of the Lollipop Guild. True story, check the credits. Shedecided the Munchkin life was not for her, and so decided to move from Ohio to study BiomedicalEngineering and Religious Studies at Northwestern. She seems harmless enough, but don't let the
“cute little happy Asian girl”
act fool you! She once beat me up and stole my backpack! Jen is alsowell known for being hit in the face in every sport ever invented (or as she calls it, she "plays IMsports"). She's Slivka's historian, which means she writes awesome weekly newsletters for us,maintains the calendars, and yells at Austin a lot.
