Andrew is a second-year student majoring in political science and economics. As is easily inferred, he enjoys sports, politics and money. In his free time, he consistently beats his best friend at Madden and throws movie nights for his friends on what they describe as his giant TV. If he isn’t doing that, then he’s probably giving a tour for the university or avoiding human interaction in his room. Andrew is also a member of Phi Alpha Delta, a professional pre-law fraternity. He has yet to find anyone at this institution who has heard of his hometown of Urbana, Ohio. If you have heard of this town, live there, or want to debate sports or politics, his email is arf76@case.edu.
