Kristina Roberts

I am a sophomore Biomaterials Engineering major. I love math, but I also have a deep appreciation for the importance of words and communication in our society. I enjoy the analytical approach to formal writing, finding a way to connect creative expression with professional intentions. Aside from doing schoolwork, I am an active member of the Alfred University Track and Field team, having formed a passion for triple jumping.

Emily Tuttle

I am a senior biology major, and I am completing a psychology minor and pre-vet concentration with a goal of becoming an equine vet.  I’m from Connecticut, and I love eating (maybe a little too much), reading, writing, horseback riding, and playing board games, but I could talk for hours about almost anything!  I enjoy working on any part of the writing process, especially the beginning stages!

Angela VanBuskirk

 I’m a sophomore majoring in English. An introvert at heart, I have an uncanny knack for transforming myself into a blanket burrito and have been known to contemplate the many perplexities of the universe for hours on end. When I’m not writing fiction or devouring another novel, I love going on adventures with my dog, Pandora.
