Editor At Large


Andrew Kim is a economics and computer science major. Formerly part of twelve orchestras, he is an avid double bassist, a mediocre pianist, a terrible guitarist, and an even worse singer, who is constantly looking for other musicians to jam with. After multitasking two internships in the Silicon Valley and simultaneously participating in 5 road trips, he is currently looking forward to eating and hibernating.

In addition to being a graphic designer at the Claremont Radius, John is on the CMC Model United Nations team and a manager at the Roberts Environmental Center.

Gabriella Del Greco is a undecided major frantically trying to figure out what she wants to do with her life. She's currently a member of the Scripps Advocates, a contributing staff member of the Scripps Yearbook, and a mentor at Pomona's Weekly Writing Workshop. When not in class, you can find her hoarding copious amounts of fruit from the dining hall and strolling across the 5cs at a leisurely pace.



Hava Parker is a (potential!) computer science and mathematical/computational biology double major, though if she weren't concerned with the job market, she would likely be studying art history instead. She is a current member of the Women's Blue & White, a 5C acapella group, and can often be found scream-singing on her dorm room floor, watching Vine compilations, or eating ungodly amounts of Korean barbecue.


Kai O'Neill will most likely major in government. He's on CMC's Mock Trial team, and is passionate about history, politics, and international relations. Loving travel, Kai's been to over sixty countries across six continents. 





Julian Thesseling is a government-history dual major with an interest in how the private and public sectors intersect.

Max Fisher is a government and economics dual major. He is an admissions associate and is involved with several jobs on campus, including working at the Hub. After a summer busy with traveling across the country, Max is excited to be back on campus and to hone in on his interests, ranging from economic trends through government issues to marine biology. When he is not working, Max is usually outdoors, whether that entails surfing, skiing or lounging at the beach, and he is interested in becoming a chess master by the end of college.



Naomi Tilles is an intended International Relations major at Pomona College. Having grown up in the US and Ireland, she is especially interested in the politics of the European Union.

Maya Shah is a Film Literature major. She is currently an entertainment writer for Affinity Magazine and author of the Demon's Angel.
