Class of 2025 Major: Literally no clue College: Grace Hopper Hometown: Washington, DC Activities: Piano (repertoire contains 2 songs on repeat), dance, painting, and re-watching the Great British Bake Off to calm down from facing minor inconveniences. About: Grace has an irrational fear of toe socks (they're freaky) and has one younger sister. These two facts are unrelated. She is from actual DC and has recently learned that some people like to say they're from DC when they're NOT. This is upsetting for obvious reasons. Grace danced for many years and deeply internalized when her instructor said "you have the hamstrings of a 70 year old woman." She is slightly afraid of gyms, but weightlifters also have the hamstrings of 70 year old women, so at least she knows she's not alone. Grace likes the color green and bagels with too much cream cheese. She is too indecisive to know what else to put in this bio.
Class of 2025 Major: EPE / TAPS College: Benjamin Franklin Hometown: Denver, Colorado Activities: Improv, skiing, running, and other attention-seeking behavior. About: Vivek has three big personality traits. 1: his experience as an employee in a Mediterranean Restaurant that didn’t serve falafel. 2: the time he got second to last in the state championships for cross country, but only because another runner literally passed out. 3: being vegetarian. He also gets bullied by Luke Tyson for being bad at mock trial. To be fair: about half of Luke’s statements are objectively true.
Class of 2025 Major: Electrical Engineering / Undecided College: Davenport Hometown: Denver, Colorado Activities: Code Haven, Yale Camerata, Writing lots of long and useless books About: Yes, there is another Jordan Davidson at Yale University. No, this is not him. This Jordan is the less functional version who sometimes doesn’t reappear from the depths of whatever book she’s currently reading for days. Most of her friends are book characters. Mock trial combines learning social interaction with being book characters, which is why Jordan likes it.
Class of 2025 Major: Undecided (probably Political Science/American Studies + Spanish) College: Pauli Murray Hometown: Ventura, California Activities: YDN, tutoring, riding my bike (his name is Milo) About: Lion King fan, em dash enthusiast, and amateur coffee connoisseur. Lover of puzzles—like ~puzzles~ puzzles—and sudoku. Grammar books: the best genre. Has never had a big mac or any other similar provision, burger-like in nature, from McDonalds. Does not and will not understand football. Long walks in the woods zealot.
Class of 2025 Major: Engineering (discipline undecided) and Computer Science College: Jonathan Edwards Hometown: Los Angeles, California Activities: YMTA, Yale Society of Women Engineers, Chi Alpha About: Noemi is a lover of nature, a supporter to all, and a hater of speaking in third person. You can pronounce my name as if I've been denied an Emmy award.
Class of 2025 Major: IDK College: Benjamin Franklin Hometown: Pittsburgh, PA Activities: Procrastinating, eating, losing his AirPods, calling his mom About: On the rare occasion that Luke is not actively pondering truth, justice, and the law, one might find him playing Mario Kart, napping, or hiding the fact that he's in DS. He's in the top .1% of Khalid listeners on Spotify and does not, as has been alleged, bully Vivek.
Class of 2025 Major: Undecided :) College: Saybrook Hometown: Turlock, California and Reykjavik, Iceland Activities: Taekwondo (please don't ask me if I could beat you up :) ) About: This night is sparkling, don't you let it go I'm wonder struck, blushing all the way home I'll spend forever wondering if you knew I was enchanted to meet you. If you recognized those lyrics as the chorus from my favorite song "Enchanted" by Taylor Swift, I can tell you and I are going to get along well.
Class of 2025 Major: Political Science College: Pierson Hometown: Richmond, Kentucky (about 11 hours outside of Brooklyn) Activities: Mock Trial, every intramural sport (other than soccer), and investing far too much emotional energy into the Philadelphia 76ers (#lickface). About: Everett began his mock trial career in 6th grade because he enjoyed the sound of his own voice; it continues because he enjoys the sound of the accents he performs. Everett hopes this constitutes some sort of personal growth. When he is not pretending to enjoy crumpets, linguine, or shrimp on the barbie, Everett actually enjoys playing basketball (poorly), drinking unsweetened iced tea (pourly), and shopping for sneakers he cannot afford (poor-ly). In the future, Everett hopes to become President or set precedent. If these hopes don't appear, don’t fear, his rhyming skills promise an illustrious SoundCloud rapping career (ya hear?).
Class of 2025 Major: Undecided College: Timothy Dwight Hometown: Shreveport, Louisiana Activities: YMTA, MUNTY About: When he is not carefully reducing his online presence, Henry can be found complaining about Yale dining Gumbo or sleeping on his common room couch.
Class of 2025 Major: English College: Jonathan Edwards Hometown: Palo Alto, California Activities: Hiking, tap dancing, reading, and converting people who don't know they like Taylor Swift into liking Taylor Swift About: Madeline is considering a career in interior design. Recently, Madeline willfully purchased a purple velvet couch for her common room. Her suitemate's father commented it looks like if Barney died and came back to life as a couch. Madeline feels great about it. Reach out to her for any and all room decor needs. Her current hobbies include peddling propaganda about Directed Studies to freshman and being fake on BeReal. She is passionate about pickles (dill only), Nick Miller from New Girl, and the indisputable fact that California is the best state.
Class of 2025 Major: History of Science, Medicine, and Public Health College: Morse Hometown: Holly Springs, North Carolina Activities: Yale Undergraduate Moot Court (yikes!), Morse College Council (patriot), Yale College Council (political shill?), finding room in schedule to nap (proficient), micro dosing allergens to build immunity (genius) About: Jenesis is allergic to a truly embarrassing number of foods, which will not be revealed here for safety reasons (re: assassination). When she is not accidentally (or deliberately) poisoning herself in the dining hall, she spends a lot of time preparing for doomsday, pondering the genius of the Esteemed Lady Ms. Taylor Swift, or being surprised at the consequences of her own actions. If you are looking for her, she is probably right behind you.
Class of 2025 Major: Hopefully Global Affairs and Sociology College: Ezra Stiles Hometown: San Ramon, California Activities: Theater, Yale College Democrats, music production, boxing, and cinematography About: 1. José hates the ocean, but likes long walks on the beach. 2. José is a supertaster (look it up), which means he's picky... but with flair. 3. José is originally from Buffalo, New York. No Buffalo Bills slander will be tolerated in his presence. 4. José does not look like Ross Lynch (from Austin and Ally) or Ellen Degeneres, so stop saying that. Instead, tell him he looks like Jack Frost, specifically from the 2012 movie Rise of the Guardians (74% on Rotten Tomatoes). He would appreciate that. 5. José's favorite number is 5. Give him 5 dollars. 6. José is Venezuelan American. If you enjoy Venezuelan arepas (NOT COLOMBIAN AREPAS), we will be friends. 7. José reminds you that under NO CIRCUMSTANCES should you ever microwave a Pop-Tart for more than 3 seconds at a time. 15. José doesn't want to tell you this one. It's a secret.
