(10/25/17 3:58pm)

Cole Medan, an English major with a concentration in Creative Writing (C '19), thought teaching would be perfect for him. He imagined himself becoming a John Keating of sorts, prompting his students to stand on desks and vandalize books in his honor.

It’s 5:00 pm after my three hour chemistry lab. In years past, this was the best time of the evening.
