One time he went to Russia and built a spaceship. Another time he interpretive danced and hula hooped his way to (almost) becoming Mr. Martel. His hoops don’t lie, guys. And let’s not forget about the time he took over Martel spaces by becoming our Vice President. Jeremy does it all and does it well. This senior mechanical engineering major also coaches Martel powderpuff, builds cool things like ballot boxes, and, not to mention, is a Martel Head Mentor. This means you’re in luck: you get an in with the snack choices. Ask him to watch a movie with you, and he’ll likely quote the entire script or tell you where every actor/actress is from, no big deal. Or ask him about Mason, TX, and he’ll share with you his expertise on rocks and geology. Fun fact: he is the guy you want on your trivia team because he actually knows all things random and useless. Prepare yourself for the best combination of sass and charm in an advisor that is Jeremy Dowell.
Don’t let Austin’s cool exterior fool you. Beneath that lies one of the sassiest and smartest people I know. Prepare yourself for a conversation with him; you’ll come away laughing so much you get a stitch. (This will probably be due to the latest story of Austin falling down. Seriously, he has dramatically fallen four times in the past semester.) As an electrical engineer, Austin will explain everything about transistors, capacitors, and cir- cuits to you over a double iced caramel latte in Coffeehouse, his second home. He is undoubtedly more hip than the city of Austin, Texas. If you ask him, he will attribute his coolness to his glori- ous childhood in Walnut, California. At the end of the day, Austin is one of the most dependable, funny, and caring people at this university. You are in for sassy, but wonderful ride in O-Week!
