Name: Priya Arya

Currently on my quest to become Mindy Kaling.

Name: Tyler Ball
Residence Hall: Field

Name: Veda Berg
Residence Hall: Montag
Greetings loved ones; let’s take a journey. First and foremost, I have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with the internet; that includes YouTube, reddit, imgur, and ALL the social media. I also love petting cats and enjoy partaking in binge-sessions of various shows on Netflix. When I’m not spending time online, I’m either attempting to exercise at the CRC, procrastinating my homework, or marching around at band practice. Like everyone else on this campus, I wanna be the very best, like no one ever was. But if there’s one thing for sure I am that other people aren’t, it’s that upside, inside out, I'm Livin' la "Veda" Loca.​

Name: Sam Burke
Residence Hall: Smith​
Same as the last person but better.
A. Clawson.jpg
Name: Annika Clawson
Residence Hall: Harrison
Once upon a time, in a mythical, magical place called Wisconsin, a baby was born. The new mother, unfortunately, had lost a bet, and forfeited all rights to naming her new daughter. The father, deciding his daughter was going to have a "cool" name, picked the name Annika. This decision led to a future of botched pronunciations, references to a certain Star Wars character, and misspelled Starbucks cups. Additionally, the couple decided to raise their daughter in the Midwest, giving her a basically Canadian accent and an overwhelming, maternal aesthetic. However, in spite of all of these disadvantages bestowed upon the poor girl, Annika managed to achieve awesomeness. She can quote every episode of Friends, enjoys Disney movie marathons, and calls everyone "hun." And she just really loves her dog.

Name: Kate Dixon
Residence Hall: Freeman
Fresh out of the mean streets of Lombard, Illinois, Kate was born at a very young age. She is also gearing up to drop her next mixtape without causing massive fire damage (this time). Kate is composed of 63% sleep, 34% existentialist crises, 75% water, and 89% math knowledge. Kate's motto is "expect The Unexpected." Hit her up if you're interested in terrible puns and extreme napping!

Name: Kristen English
Residence Hall: Woodruff North
Just an average girl with an unusual obsession of coffee, Buzzfeed, and FAB. Providing the world with overenthusiastic underachievement since '97, Kristen is a renowned procrastinator with the ability to write a biography in ten minutes or less. Kristen has been described by most (mainly just her mom) as a successful individual with an award winning smile and personality. When she's not watching funny cat videos on Youtube or having a nervous breakdown in the CULC, you can usually find her chilling with her FABabes. ​

Name: Emily Finger
Residence Hall: Matheson​
Greetingz loved onez. My name's Emily and I'm an IAML major. I'm an avid Blue Donkey Coffee drinker and BuzzFeed quiz taker. Fun fact: according to BuzzFeed, my spirit cheese is gorgonzola (tangy, colorful, and one classy mofo). I love FAB more than Mindy Kaling, Christmas, and Broadway showtunes, which is a TON! I am so excited to be apart of FAB this year and I can't wait to plan some ***Flawless events for GT'19! ​

​Name: Emily Hale
Residence Hall: Field
(to be read in a British accent) Hi, I’m Emily… Yes I’m from the UK, I live just north of London… No you won’t have heard of the town I live in… No I don’t live near Oxford… Yes I drink tea… No I don’t like One Direction, neither do I consider them ‘my people’… No I haven’t met your friend who lives in Manchester… Oh, you visited London this summer, that’s nice, I wasn’t in the country at the time… I decided to go to Georgia Tech because it has a good engineering school… Yes I have visited the US before, my mother is American… Yes, I am in FAB, its great!
Congratulations you’ve just had the same first conversation I’ve had with most of the people I’ve met on campus! Come out to the FAB events this year because they’re going to be wonderful and I’ve met the Duke of Edinburgh so if you meet me you’re only two handshakes away from royalty. ​

​Name: Sriram Iyer
Residence Hall: Towers
​Who am I? You sure you want to know? The story of my life is not for the faint of heart. If somebody said it was a happy little tale... if somebody told you I was just your average ordinary guy, not a care in the world... somebody lied. I grew up in the harsh city of Herndon, Virginia, where both the distance between chain restaurants and the teen pregnancy rate was practically zero.

Times were tough.

To keep up my street cred in a world that was trying to make me into a protected, suburban, bubble-brewed child, I turned to hip-hop, blasting Jay-Z and Kendrick Lamar from the speakers of my Dad's Lexus. I even took up Debate on my high school's Lincoln-Douglas debate team to sharpen my tongue and started DJing to avoid seeming like just another ABCD in a math and science high school.

Growing up, I never had to struggle for much, other than the right to stay up past 12 on a school night.

Whatever Georgia Tech holds in store for me, I will never forget these words: "With no power comes no responsibility."

This is my gift, my curse.

Who am I?

I'm Sriram Iyer.

​Name: Hal Jarrett
Residence Hall: Hopkins
Once upon a time, in a land far, far, away, a man and a woman loved each other very much, and thus, here I am. I was always the cool kid growing up, which was why I had the candles on my tenth birthday cake lit in binary. You better believe I had the sickist Sketchers light-ups on the cul-de-sac. I once tossed a sibling out of a second story window in the name of fire safety. I enjoy long walks on the beach, and getting to know people on a deep, personal level. I could survive the rest of my life on breakfast food alone. My hobbies include making distasteful puns and laughing at inappropriate times. I collect t-shirts, koozies, and emotional baggage. If you ever need to talk in confidence, I will never, ever share it. I value a strong work ethic, and believe in the fundamental value and dignity of all people. My perfect date is April 25, because it is not to hot, not to cold, perfect for a light sweater. I love to travel, and hope to one day have set foot in every country on Earth. I choose to be an optimist, and to see the best in everyone.​

Name: Sarah Jory
Residence Hall: Field
Sarah is a business major.  Her hobbies include watching football, talking too loudly and losing her voice screaming for the Jackets on Saturday afternoons.  During the week you can find her at Piedmont Park running or taking pictures of cute puppies by the dog park..(the real reason she runs is to puppy stalk). ((:

​Name: Chase Lewis
Residence Hall: Perry
​Born in the hostile environment of deep space, Chase first emerged into the world with a flourish of grace. However, as his entire past would take much too long to retrace, this brief summary will simply touch base: If you ever face him in cards, beware of his poker face, for he may have yet to play his ace. Additionally, while he enjoys fruit, turnips and beets are despised by Chase, although to be fair he is rather fond of turn-ups and beats (assuming there is good bass). On a final note, if you ever need a warm embrace, give him a call and he’ll be on the case.
*Sorry if the rhyming was out of place*

​Name: Perri Neuner
Residence Hall: Harrison
Hi, my name is Perri and I'm a shopaholic. I'm also the token FAB ginger. My hobbies (besides shopping) include smiling too much, laughing too loudly, surfing too infrequently, and running my car into parked cars who happen to randomly fling open their doors with no warning. But above all, I'm fergalicious.​

​Name: Nikita Patel
Residence Hall: Matheson
Hi, my name is Nikita Patel. I don't like long walks on the beach. I hate sand. I despise the outdoors. But you know what I love!? Funny faces, food, and FAB! ​

Name: Nick Restivo
Residence Hall: Field​
My longboard's name is Chelsea, and I ride her around campus so people stare as we glide past them with a calm swagger that makes them stare and admire my incredible poise. My goal at Tech is to get so good at shredding the asphalt that I never have to get off my board even when I awkwardly walk to class with a girl while carrying my board. Chelsea gets lonely when she is carried, so one day she threw me off after I tried to ride her after carrying her for a while. I was forced to limp around campus for a week. But through the thick and thin our love persisted I learned my lesson and now devote all my campus travels to Chelsea, rain or shine. I engraved Restivo on her underside, so you could say we are pretty official. If you want to be my friend, give me a sticker to put on her and you can be a part of our strong campus presence and passionate relationship.​

​Name: Noah Sannes
Residence Hall: Glenn
Hi! My name is Noah, and I am from Milton, Georgia. I am studying architecture here at Tech, and hope to pursue a career in sustainable residential design and development. Outside of the studio, I enjoy swimming competitively and volunteering with Habitat for Humanity. I am very excited to be a part of FAB this year to work toward providing unique events that both unite and excite my classmates. ​

Name: Nick Sherrard
Residence Hall: Towers
I consider myself to be like a sea sponge. Always changing and growing, filter feeding on the particles of knowledge that life’s currents bring my way. Not quite Spongebob, but also somewhat Spongebob. I’m a real free thinker; I like to think about free things. College may be hard and expensive but gummy candy isn’t either of those things. And now for some facts about me. Typically will score just over 100 if and when I go bowling. I'm still looking for a pet store that sells Pokémon. Once I finished an entire stick of chapstick without losing it. And finally, If you need something to start a fire, take a look at some of my tweets.​

​Name: Tara Sidhu
Residence Hall: Folk
I've been to the year 3000, not much has changed but they lived underwater. ​

​Nam: Evan Smoot
Residence Hall: Smith
There once was a boy from Northeast
To him, the name Evan bequeathed
To Tech he took a cab
Where he then joined FAB
So the boredom at Tech was decreased

​Name: Will (Sunshine) Thomas
Residence Hall: Hefner
This is a story all about how
My life got flip-turned upside down
And I liked to take a minute and sit right there
And tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel Air

In west Philadelphia born and raised
On the playground was where I spent most of my days
Chilling' out, maxing', relaxing' all cool
And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school

When a couple of guys who were up to no good
Starting' makinig trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one lil' fight and my mom got scared
She said you're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel Air

I whistled for a cab and when it came near
The license plate said fresh and it had dice in the mirror
If anything I can say this cab is rare
But I thought now forget it yo homes to Bel Air

I pulled up to the house about 7 or 8
And I yelled to the cab "yo homes, smell ya later!"
I looked at my kingdom, I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the Prince of Bel Air​

Name: Jessica Thornberry
Residence Hall: Harrison​
Hey there woes and bros. Here's a rambling wreck from Georgia Tech and a helluva business major. Jessica (or Jess or Thornberry) has memorized every line in all 8 Harry Potter movies, never seen Star Wars, and has a slight obsession with bagels. Her goal for freshmen year is to tell FABulous dad jokes to somebody everyday. While she's not saving puppies and putting out house fires, Jess enjoys bird watching, underwater basket weaving, and appearing in Snapchat stories.

Name: Giancarlo (Johnny) Vargas
Residence Hall: Perry​
A somber individual, Giancarlo Vargas likes hand holding, watching sunsets, going on long walks on the beach, and crying himself to sleep. He once met the Pope and was congratulated on his great looks and Barack Obama describes him as "a pretty cool  guy."

The son of Puerto Rican parents, Giancarlo Emmanuel Vargas was given an Italian first name and a Hebrew middle name despite being neither Jewish nor Italiano.

Giancarlo's hobbies include running, annoying his older sister, and practicing conversations and situations he may or may not ever have. If you ever see him on campus feel free to start a conversation and ask him for his autograph. If he seizes up and doesn't talk to you, don't worry, he probably just hasn't practiced this conversation.

Giancarlo's favorite things in the world are his family, his friends, his hall, and of course FAB! If you aren't convinced that you should befriend this kid than let these reviews change your mind:

"10/10 would hang with again" - IGN
"He's alright, I guess" - His mother
"I use his mixtape to heat my house" -Drake
"Dang, that's the guy that stole my girl" - Every guy ever

Name: Drew Vincent
Residence Hall: Hopkins​
I am Drew Vincent, however my friends sometimes call me Cheese head because of my love for the Packers. However, I do not bleed green and gold, that is unhealthy. I went to high school in Atlanta. Where exactly? I am not going to tell you. That’s how stalking happens. I try to be athletic and you may see me practicing with the club soccer team. In my free time I enjoy promising myself that I will get a ton of work done and then getting distracted and wasting all of that time. My hero is whoever got the ice cream machine back at North Ave. He is the true MVP. Currently I am working on my mixtape which needs help because it is “Not fire”-New York Times (my photo is one of the scenes from my music video). I am a Business major so you can often spot me late for class at Scheller tripping as I run up several flights of stairs. If you see me around campus please introduce yourself. I love meeting people! Good luck to us all as we try to survive Tech! 

​Name: Jake Williams
Residence Hall: Towers
​Hey, I'm Jake, and I am currently a CS Major. I'm from Suwanee GA, which is about 30 minutes North of Georgia Tech. On campus, I am involved in FAB (Obviously), a Computing club called Humani-tech, and I am planning on joining the Club Swim Team in the Spring. I tend to be pretty sarcastic, and I really like puns.

​Name: Meredith Wolpert
Residence Hall: Hanson
  I’m Meredith Wolpert straight outta Bawstawn, MA. I laugh really loud and I like bagels, but I don’t enjoy spending money on them. People say that they get lost in my eyes. I’m involved with FAB, the Society of Women in Business, DanceTech, a sister of Zeta Tau Alpha, a candidate for who can be involved in the most groups on campus, and founder of IDHAFTIML (I-don’t-have-any-free-time-in-my-life). I have an unhealthy obsession with my abnormally-fat-camera-shy cat, Jenna, and Breaking Bad— you can find Heisenberg on the back of my car. Feel free to say hi to me around campus because I love making new friends :)​
