"Hello, everyone! My name is Jeremy Bernius, and I am lucky to say that I am one of your Whitman College RCAs! I am originally from rural Georgia, and the only accent I can reliably do is an exaggerated Southern one ripped right out of my home. I am a junior concentrating in the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs, and I am pursuing certificates in Technology and Society and Values and Public Life. I plan on going into public interest technology and technology policy, but I am passionate about anything policy related. On campus, I am a part of Envision, a student group focused on everything futurism, and work with SIFP, a group by and for first-generation, low-income students. I also volunteer with centers focused on diversity and inclusion, and I act and direct on the side for fun. As for my personal hobbies, I love to cook new foods, dance (poorly) to music, work on DIY projects, make bad jokes and puns, read classic literature, and watch either artistic or trashy movies and TV (there is no in between).
As an RCA in Whitman, I look forward to not only helping your transition into this Princeton life but to also make it feel like a warm and welcoming home, much like my own RCA did for me my freshman year. Through exciting and relaxing study breaks, one-on-ones, community involvement, peer support, and advice, I hope to foster an inclusive community and a sense of belonging. I look forward to welcoming you to Princeton and especially to our new home in Whitman!"
