Last Call: Uday Agrawal


As the semester progresses at the speed of light, the senior class is beginning to make peace with that fateful day in May: Commencement. Until the class of 2015 leaves us, BlogDH wants to highlight all the interesting things they’ve been up to. To this end, we’re (re)starting the series Last Call, which features seniors reflecting on their experiences at Brown. Each featured senior will tag another senior for the next installment. Find this year’s other “Last Call” chain here and our RISD “Last Call” chain here.

People might know me as… Udy-booty.

In my time at Brown, I am most proud of… Putting up with my crazy but lovable roommate(s) for the past 4 years.

On Friday night, you might find yourself…
 At Kabob and Curry!

Three things you wish you knew freshman year…
  1. You can print directly from your laptop to PAWPrints.
  2. Tea in Sahara is the best place to pretend to study, and the Watson Institute is the best place to actually study.
  3. The best way to save money is to participate in every single research experiment and go to all the events with free food.
Ratty vs. V-Dub… Ratty, obviously.

The best thing you did in your time at Brown is…
Flooding Emma Watson’s old suite by leaving a bowl in the sink.

One thing you wish you had done at Brown is…
Get a full razor shave from Chez Moustache.

After graduation, you plan to…
 Poke Buddhists and Tai Chi practitioners with electrodes.

What’s the hardest class you’ve taken at Brown? If you could do it over, would you still take it?
Neural Dynamics with Christopher Moore and Stephanie Jones — this class was as hard as you wanted it to be, but it is with two of the best professors I know, and it’s a great time to push yourself with amazing support and feedback.

What’s the most rewarding extracurricular you’ve been a part of? Why?
 Badmaash! I got to meet lovely people, pretend to know how to dance, and travel to Vegas for free!

One piece of advice for underclassmen?
 Reach out to upperclassmen, faculty, and staff and really try and find a mentor — it’s easier than you think and more rewarding than you imagine. Also, 20 meals a week is definitely the way to go.

Describe your thesis, lolmythesis style…
Zapping people’s brains is good for pain and kind of like meditating.

question: If you had $100 to spend at the Brown Bookstore, what would you spend it on?
 Gifts for all of my favorite people! (Because its bad karma to buy gifts for yourself!!)
