Jason Hom

Hello! My name is Jason and I’m a rising senior studying Computer Science, minoring in math and French. I grew up in Long Island, New York. On campus, I’m the vice director for PennApps. In addition, I’m a TA for some CIS courses. My first year, I lived in Fisher Hassenfeld College House. This past summer, I interned as a software engineer and before Penn, I went to a public school where I took AP classes.

Andy Eskenazi

Hi! It is a pleasure to meet you all! My name is Andy, and I am a math and
mechanical engineering student from Buenos Aires, Argentina enrolled in the VIPER
program. On campus, you’ll usually find me rushing on the hallways of the second
floor of the Towne building either heading to Towne 205 (where MEAM 101 is
taught!), my lab (I work with Prof. Igor Bargatin on energy converting devices) or the
ecafe to get a sandwich before class. Outside of the classroom, I enjoy playing tennis,
cycling, and playing the euphonium at the amazing Penn Band (which you should
totally join!).
