Description

Ask current Yale students questions about academics, campus life, dorm living, and more. Livestream viewers will get to vote on questions and ask their own!

Meet the panelists: Aki, Matt, Sammy, and Teava

Aki is a junior from Upper Saddle River, New Jersey double-majoring in Chemistry and Economics. Aki introduces visitors to Yale as a campus tour guide and science tour guide. She is the former Secretary-General of the Yale Model United Nations Conference and a member of the competitive Model UN team. In her free time, she enjoys baking, playing with her dog, and watching reality TV!

Matt is a junior from South Florida studying History. He's an award-winning documentary filmmaker and serves as Video Projects Editor for The Politic, Yale's politics and culture newsmagazine. He's also a writer and performer for Red Hot Poker, Yale's premier sketch comedy group. When he's not Zooming into classes, you can find Matt chugging coffee (black), talking about Freud (obsessively), and mocking people who like Peloton (which he recently discovered is actually kind of a good app but don't tell any of the people he has mocked).

Sammy hails from Westchester NY and is a junior Humanities major. Sammy is an award winning member of Yale’s Model United Nations team and the director of Yale’s financial aid working group, which advocates for more equitable Yale financial aid policies. You can get Sammy to do pretty much anything so long as you promise him a good espresso or a solid music rec.

Teava is a junior from sunny Honolulu, Hawaii. He is pursuing a B.S. in Mathematics with a certificate in French. He is a member of Yale's competitive Model United Nations team and the former president of the New Haven Urban Debate League, a nonprofit that brings debate programs to New Haven public schools. He can often be found running, writing, or lost in a good conversation.
