Jared is a freshman financial economics major, but he would also like to do something in astronomy and anthropology. He hails from Goshen, N.Y. In his free time he likes to play ‘death frisbee” with his hallmates and hang out on Tiernan 4. He is one of the new Midnight Ramblers and a member of the Campus Activity Board. He enjoys going to Chabad and is looking foward to applying to be a Meridian in the late fall.
