Lucky us! Introducing our firecracker Spring interns!
Name: Justin Beaudrot

Best college moment (so far): Going to the High Museum of Art with my World Lit. class.
Name: Andrew J. Garner
Major: English and Journalism
Guilty pleasure: I try not to feel guilty about most things I enjoy, but my friends would probably say my Taylor Swift listening habits!
Favorite Hooch piece: “New Nests Blown Loose,” by Paul Nelson (Animal issue)
Best college moment (so far): Getting to learn so much about writing!
Name: Farhin Lilywala
Guilty pleasure: My guilty pleasure would probably be singing at the top of my lungs while I drive, along with yelling at others on the road who don’t know how to drive. Sometimes, my mood changes with the mood of the song. Oh, but when I get to my favorite part of the song, I forget the other drivers and sing, loud.
Favorite Hooch piece: My favorite piece would still probably be “Snake Life,” by David Bajo (Animal issue).
Best college moment (so far): My best college moment so far would be when the previous Editor-in-Chief called me to congratulate me on becoming the next Editor-in-Chief of the Collegian. I remember smiling so hard my face hurt and screaming.

Best college moment (so far): Indian summer on the Broad River, listening to Neil with Fletch (dog).
Name: Tiffany Nicole Trivett
Guilty pleasure: I dance around my house and sing pop and hip-hop songs at the top of my lungs, but I don’t feel guilty about it.
Favorite Hooch piece: “Hush, Please,” by Phong Nguyen (Animal issue)
