Jake and I became friends through his mom. Janet was the dean of first year students who helped me when I was struggling with depression my first year at Bowdoin. Jake is equally as wonderful, and is about to embark on a study abroad program in Germany. We’re lucky to have him around for these few weeks this spring. He is an expert marshmallow roaster and a great friend (and physics nerd). We’re excited to steal him from his a capella group and introduce him to the band life. Welcome Jake!
