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 the other Brown Last Call chain here and RISD Last Call chain here.
People might know me as… Based/Clyde Lawrence’s friend/ ††Slug Christ 2.0††.
In my time at Brown, I am most proud of… MILC (formerly Milk Supply Co). It’s my baby. I launched the site on my 21st birthday junior year. In the year and a half since then, MILC has been picked up in stores, written up in blogs from Cali to the UK, and sponsored a pop-up show in Chicago with original artwork and clothes. I’m still working on it and things keep picking up (on the low). The experience has taught me about inventory, manufacturing, networking, marketing, design, overall hustling, etc. Also it’s been really fun. By far the most grueling/rewarding/educational experience in my time here.
On a Friday night, you might find yourself… Cooking in the kitchen.
The best class/professor at Brown is… Other classes can finish but Art of the Book with Lara Henderson is the best class of all time. Students get access to the John Hay print shop which has incredibly rare printing presses that only a dozen or so students can use per semester. Also: shout-out to Joseph Pucci as the best professor.
Three things you wish you knew freshman year… 1) This school is smaller than you think. 2) The street sign you and Adam put in your Emery dorm room is going to slip and seriously damage the wall, you idiot, you don’t even need a street sign, why would you possibly need a full street sign with the pole still attached throw it away. 3) The best way to make friends is to find the toughest person you know and beat them up.
