Akshitha Vijay

Hi everyone! I am a rising junior studying bioengineering (BSE) here at Penn. I’m from all over the place — Chicago, Bay Area, Sacramento, Seattle, and Princeton. Career-wise, I’m on the consulting track, hoping to do healthcare management consulting. In high school, I was super involved in student government and continued that through my involvement in the Undergraduate Assembly (UA). At Penn, I’m President of SEAS Wellness, a consultant in GRC, in the finance committee of Wharton Undergraduate Healthcare Club (WUHC), a member of UPenn South Asia Society (SAS), and am a singer in Penn’s all-female South Asian acapella group, Penn Atma. In my free time, I love to play video games on my PS4, bake, crochet, do yoga, and mix tracks. Also, I’m a huge cinephile and love watching high-quality TV shows. Look forward to meeting y’all!

Erik Mucollari

My name is Erik Mucollari and I’m a rising senior studying Computer Science and Economics. I was born and raised in Philly and am a huge Sixers fan. When I’m on campus, I love spending time at pottruck, on locust walk, and highrise field! Not really sure what else is appropriate to say here so I will leave a quote from one of my favorite sports interviews of all time. “I mean there’s more questions you have to ask me in order for me to tell you about myself” -Kawhi Leonard

Campbell Phalen

I’m a rising Junior from Chicago studying NETS. On campus, I have a passion for computer science and software development. I help build products for students on campus with Penn Labs, mainly I work on the Penn Clubs application. I’m a teaching assistant for two courses at Penn: CIS 120 and CIS 188 (a half credit elective course). I also play goalie for the club lacrosse team at Penn (although I haven’t played in over a year thanks to quarantine)! Outside of school, I enjoy old movies, musical theater, drinking coffee, and playing board games.

Dale Kim

My name is Dale and I’m currently a rising junior in BE (BSE) on a pre-med track with minors in chemistry and creative writing. I’ve done both wet lab and dry lab research for the past ~4 years and am currently doing research at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. I plan to apply to medical school next cycle with interests in pediatrics, infectious diseases, and immunology and hope to be a physician scientist in the future. I’m from Colorado, so I love skiing, hiking, running, and the snow. I also like to write (speculative fiction and urban fantasies are the jam) and binge-watch shows (Game of Thrones and Brooklyn 99 are also the jam). In addition to English, I speak fluent Korean and a teensy bit of Mandarin. My star sign is Libra, my house is Ravenclaw (although Slytherin is a close second), my faction is Erudite, and I am an airbender according to the last Buzzfeed quiz I’ve taken.

Anna Feng

Hi! I’m Anna. I’m a sophomore studying Mechanical Engineering and came to Penn Engineering CD. I’ve lived all over the northeast but spent most of my life living in Boston, Massachusetts. I love photography, hiking, sunsets, long walks, and the dog park next to the Schuylkill. At Penn, I’m a swimmer on Penn Swim and Dive and a research assistant at Penn Medicine. I also love being a part of PSA for photography, Penn Appetit, and AOE (pre-professional sorority).

David Adler

Hi! My name’s David and I’m a MEAM major in SEAS. After growing up on Long Island, I took a gap year in Israel before starting Penn. I’m currently involved with the Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity as well as the Hillel on campus and would love to help some of you find some suitable activities while at Penn, they’ll give you great community! If you have any questions at all about your transition to Penn or just want to talk, feel free to reach out.
