JACOB GRAYZEL

Vice President

Jacob (he/him/his) is a second-year from just New Jersey studying something in Weinberg that changes every other week. He used to be a competitive jump roper and bird watcher, but now he is Willard Vice President. His favorite room in Willard is the collab room and he has a physical revulsion to Fran’s after eating too much of it. He says to watch out for the 1002 chicken nuggets event next fall.

KONRAD SCHMID

Treasurer

Konrad (he/him/his) is a second-year from Highland Park, IL majoring in physics, minoring in mathematics, and possibly pursuing a Secondary Teaching Certificate from SESP. His hobbies include hanging out with friends, swimming (somewhat) competitively, and playing water polo. When he's not at class or hanging out at Willard, you can usually find him at SPAC. He likes talking and learning about fitness, movies, and all genres of music (old and new) so he can keep expanding his Spotify playlists.

CAROLINE HARMS

Secretary

Caroline (she/her/hers) is a second-year studying Materials Science and Engineering.  A self-professed chai aficionado, future contestant on the Great British Bake-Off (once she learns how to bake), and aspiring poet, you can often find her in the Collab Room trying to figure out MATLAB and planning her next Trader Joe’s run. She also LOVES a good rant session, so feel free to come talk/complain to her if something’s on your mind!

According to the moral alignment test, she is chaotic good, and she consumes approximately three coffees a day. If she’s not in the collab room or RCMA, you can find her dying her hair (usually pink) or on her way to a house show somewhere in Chicago. If you see her, please ask her for her Letterboxd.

QUINN SCHWAGER

Social Chair

Quinn (he/him/his) is a second-year student studying Biological Sciences on the pre-med track. He is from Wheaton, Illinois, only an hour southwest of campus. You can catch Quinn in the WFFL or collaboration room working for hours on end (pre-med life be like that). But if he does catch a break from his studies, he'll usually be watching Netflix, hanging out with friends, or making Tik Toks. He is always open to talking to people, so if you have an idea for an event, don’t be shy to talk to him.

ANNALISE BIESTERFELD

Fellows Chair

Annalise (she/her/hers) is a second-year from Denver, Colorado in the Bienen/Weinberg dual degree program majoring in Voice and Opera Performance and Economics, with a minor in Anthropology.

When you see her next, feel free to say hi and ask her about her carefully curated Spotify playlists, which she considers her most prized possessions.

RYDER MCDANIEL

Food and Firesides Chair

Ryder (he/him/his o’ they/them/theirs) is a second-year theatre major studying dance and musical theatre. Ryder’s core passions are: being aggressively Californian, sleeping, eating, reading, and is known to occasionally speak when pressured. He is also quite friendly despite his resting unfriendly face. Legend has it that if you introduce him to a new good syfy/fantasy book, he will give you a map to hidden treasure in Willard.
