Tessa Haining '23, Social Chair

Tessa is a first-year in Pennypacker, aiming to concentrate in Chemistry and Comparative Literature. When she's not playing violin in BachSoc, you can spot Tessa on the Charlescompeting for women's heavyweight rowing, bolting into her 9am at a cool 9:03, obsessing over a crossword puzzle, trying not to fall into the Charles, or most likely loudly telling a story about some combination of the above.

Chris Sun '21, Poster Design

Chris is a junior in Eliot studying one of the biology concentrations (don't worry about which one, he's not even totally sure himself). His favorite thing about BachSoc is being able to design the posters, especially during orgo lectures. BachSoc posters are really Chris's only opportunity to be creative (he's a premed), so next time you see one, take a moment to admire it. His least favorite thing about BachSoc is helping with tickets, so be sure to console him on concert days!
