Feel free to reach out with any thoughts or concerns you may have.


Interim Social Chair

Keira Byno '19

Hello, reader. Welcome to the (Interim) Social Chair section of our (sometimes) troll website. Things Keira enjoys: pranking other members of AO, fencing, listening to music, dancing horribly, speaking German, killin it as Corrin during Sm4sh games, ensuring that you have a gooooood time at Tails, and Keira also apparently enjoys talking in third person about herself. Blitz her (aka meeee) if you have any questions about tails-related events or general AO questions!


Treasurer

Yolanda Huerta '19

HEY-OH! I'm Yolanda '19 and yearlong treasurer for Alpha Theta Gender Inclusive Greek House. I'm an Environmental Studies and Studio Art double major concentrating in Architecture as well as an urban studies minor. In the future, I hope to work with disaster relief programs to rebuild crucially needed infrastructure as well as to revitalize low income or abandoned housing/neighborhoods. At Dartmouth, I've worked in the sustainability office since my freshman fall and will gladly talk to you about getting involved with sustainability at Dartmouth or in life. This term, I am working on bringing back Dartmouth's Architecture Club. I am also a self proclaimed activist fighting for environmental and immigrant rights. If you ever want to talk about about these issues let me know!


House Manager

Annie Furman '19

Hwæt, we gar-dena in geardagum, þeodcyninga þrym gefrunon – wait, Will, were you serious about just letting me put up Beowulf as my bio? No? Okay fine… “Now is the winter of our discontent” – wait I can’t just quote Richard III either? What is this? Well if you insist on an actual bio…

Hey, I’m Annie and I enjoy fixing things and yelling at people, hence why I’m a house beast. Hailing from the wilds of upstate New York, I enjoy finding new silly hats for my horse to wear and travelling to places that are not upstate New York. At Dartmouth, I’m a linguistics/theater double major who works for the costume shop, rides for the Dressage Club, and is an active member of the Dartmouth Rude Mechanicals. My list of highly predictable hobbies includes sewing medieval dresses, writing novels, and making bad Shakespeare jokes.


House Manager

Ned Darling '19

Hi! I’m Ned and I’m one of the house managers of Alpha Theta! I’m an Environmental Studies major interested in wildlife conservation and land management. Outside the house, I’m a leader in the Cabin and Trail division of the Outing Club and a member of the Woodsmen Team. Also, I’m an active member of Movement Against Violence (a sexual assault prevention organization) and the College Folk Society (an open bluegrass and folk music group). I love to spend time outdoors and bluegrass music makes my day. Talk to me about the fine art of overalls and fires.

Non-Academic Chair

Stephen Banks '18

Yo I'm Stephen and I'm the Non-Ac chair for Alpha Theta! I'm an '18, and an English and Philosophy major, so anxiety about future employment is at an all time high! I'm in charge of organizing all of our weekly events like Mellows and Movie Night, as well as larger events for our membership. Feel free to contact me if you'd like more information about our weekly events, or if you have any general questions about the house.



Interim Community Service Chair

Lauren Bishop '19

Lauren Bishop ’19 comes from Jacksonville, Florida and graduated from The Bolles School as a recipient of the Dean’s Award for Leadership. At Dartmouth, Lauren is majoring in history and minoring in public policy with a focus on foreign relations. She is the Student Assistant for the Internships Program in the Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Public Policy, the Under Secretary General for Historical and Future Crisis Committees within Dartmouth’s Model United Nations Team, as well as a War and Peace Fellow, and a devoted member of the Dartmouth Outing Club. During fall 2016, Lauren interned at the White House under President Obama in the Office of Presidential Correspondence where she read and responded to letters from the American people on behalf of the president. She has a passion for traveling and has visited 22 countries as well as Antarctica.


Interim Academic Chair

Palden Flynn '18

Palden Flynn is an Alaskan trying her best to masquerade as a "normal" person. When she's not longing for her days in the mountains, fighting bears and befriending moose, she is probably either listening to the sweet sounds of David Bowie or playing with someone else's dog. She is also a B+ cook who enjoys making mac and cheese almost as much as she loves eating it. Palden is majoring in her all-time favorite subject: lunch. She hopes to make her house academically awesome by bribing Alpha Thetians with full-size candy bars and a bulk bag of skittles.


Interim Member Development Chair

Owen O'Leary '19

Owen O'Leary '19 hails from bucolic Hanover, New Hampshire and is majoring in Theater at Dartmouth. He is one of the Member Development chairs for this spring, so he helps educate new members and run events to integrate new members into the house and bring the membership together. Outside of Alpha Theta, Owen sings a cappella in The Sing Dynasty and is involved in theatrical productions through the Theater Department. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions!


Interim Member Development Chair

Lex Foote '19

Lex Foote is from Tallahassee, Florida and spends most of his time at Dartmouth regretting that he moved to somewhere with snow. He’s majoring in English and minoring in environmental studies, so his life plan is either to write the next Great American Novel or to run away from academia and work on an organic farm. Find him in Alpha Theta, in the Sanborn basement, or holed away in his room waiting for summer. As a Member Development chair, he’s responsible for welcoming and integrating new members into the house, so feel free to hit him up with any questions, suggestions, or just to say hey!


Jock Chair

Lauren Mendelsohn '19

Wait, what? This is actually an exec position? I guess so. I’m Lauren, and I’m a ’19 from Philadelphia, PA. I am a Chemistry and Earth Sciences major. If you ever want to talk about how chemical reactions model romantic relationships, or Che Guevara, or 70s folk rock, I’m your girl. At Dartmouth, I am a leader in Cabin and Trail and a captain of the Woodsmen’s team. Might be why they made me jock chair. Is Woodsmen’s a real sport? Yes. You try single bucking and get back to me. I am also a member of the College Folk Society and a resident of the Sustainable Living Center. Furthermore, I spend too many hours per week poisoning myself with chemicals in the pursuit of catalysis. Worth it. Just like exercising. Push through the pain my children.


Secretary

Jennifer Wu '19

I’m Jen, and I write emails! Please talk to me about pretty fonts and funny gifs. And dogs. Especially my dog or your dog.

On a more serious note: I am a QSS and AMES with an East Asian Concentration double major and a Government minor. When I am not at Alpha Theta, you can find me on the Japanese Floor or on FFB somewhat doing work. Because I study at FFB, I am often buy KAF in the mornings. (Or is it Y causes X? Or just a correlation? Probably the latter.) At the end of the term, I tend to have DBA leftover, so go ahead and finesse a drink or meal out of me. I am also active in Dartmouth Japan Society and Dartmouth College Fencing Club; and during my free time I enjoy eating, reading, adventuring/traveling, and admiring art.


Interim Webmaster

Will Maresco '19


WOW! Congratulations on making it to the bottom of this page! Below you will find the thirteenth and most important bio.

Will Maresco is a ‘19 majoring in Theater and Engineering from Syracuse, New York. He gets the distinct honor of managing this glorious monstrosity of a website. If it is broken its probably his fault, but he will find a way to blame somebody else. On campus Will enjoys working on theatrical productions, including The Baltimore Waltz, Chicago, The Cotton Patch Gospel, Urinetown and, most recently, as the lighting designer for Trifles. When not in a booth or in the wings, Will can be found working in the theater scene shop. Will likes to spend any free time cooking, skiing, or sleeping. Will also serves on the Gender-Inclusive Greek Council as the Treasurer.
