I’m Meir, a senior from New Jersey and this is my fourth year living in Whitman College. I’m majoring in computer science and minoring in creative writing, which means I get to spend my senior year writing a novel (about the most fun a person can have writing a thesis). I'm involved in Jewish life on campus and at this point, I’m basically part of the furniture at the Center for Jewish Life. This past summer, I worked at a computer vision startup, using neural networks to recognize crime. Before that, I traveled Patagonia in the dead of winter in search of inspiration and alpacas - sponsored by the legendary Lewis Center. In my spare time, I read dark comedy, hike remote places, and try to write. Can’t wait to spend another amazing year with the Whitman family!
