She is on the board of UChicago’s Korean Student Organization, works in a Neurobiology lab on campus and is involved in the sorority Alpha Omicron Pi.

Eliana Melmed, Class of 2021
Eliana Melmed is a third-year majoring in public policy with a minor in media, arts, and design. When she’s not trying to maintain balance while walking backwards on campus tours, you can find her practicing her Moot Court argument or making way too many lists in her bullet journal. In the rare event she has free time, she likes to indulge in her guilty pleasure of reading poorly-written YA science fiction novels and marvel at the wonders of tiny plastic boxes at the Container Store.
Andrew Emerson, Class of 2020
Andrew Emerson is a fourth-year in the College. In his free time, he works as a freelance film critic for various online publications. When he’s not watching too many movies for his own good, Andrew enjoys going on long runs, obsessively following politics and reading 19th-century French poetry with a terrible accent.
Ege Yalcindag, Class of 2021
Ege Yalcindag is third-year pursuing a biological sciences major and French minor. She has never met an animal she hasn’t liked, and she loves listening to podcasts.

Aly Tantawy is a second-year studying near eastern languages and civilizations. He aspires to pursue a career in human rights in the Middle East. When he’s not in class or writing for the team, you can find him playing soccer, going out to Chicago’s neighborhoods, or freestyling with his friends.
Devon Wenzel, Class of 2022
Devon Wenzel is a second-year majoring in English; and, as such, uses punctuation liberally as she tries to channel Dickens’ excessive (but appropriate) use of semicolons. Outside of classes, she calls herself an amateur cat photographer (her love of tea is only eclipsed by her love of cats); plays on the rugby team; helps manage a dance group (RBIM); and tries her hand at stand-up comedy; she’s working on that last one.
Lily Levine, Class of 2022
Lily Levine is a second-year pursuing a major in global studies and a minor in human rights. On campus, she is involved with the community service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega, the sorority Alpha Omicron Pi and Bite Magazine.
