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.

Social Chair

Keira Byno '19


Treasurer

Emma Mazzuchi '19

Hi! I’m Emma and I have been placed in charge of guarding our treasure, because I am a linguist who can vaguely do math. As treasurer, I am in charge of collecting dues, approving or denying purchases, and generally making sure our house stays financially afloat. I am a linguistics major, I minor in Arabic, I’m a drill instructor for French, I’m a research assistant for a project on Seenku, and in my spare time I work on Samoan. This never confuses me. Catch me speaking the wrong language, either in our kitchen making food, leading Cabin and Trail trips to the mountains, or consuming worrying amounts of coffee. If you have any questions about our finances, or if you just want to say hi, please don’t hesitate to come talk to me!


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 forestry. Outside the house, I’m a leader in the DOC hiking club Cabin and Trail and a member of the Woodsmen’s Team. Also, I’m also a discussion facilitator in Movement Against Violence (a peer sexual assault prevention organization). I love to spend time outdoors, cook delicious food, and play music with friends (music makes my day). Talk to me about the fine arts of fire building and tasteful flannel.



Academic 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 French and Environmental Studies, because he’s some kind of overachiever and didn’t want any time to take non-degree classes apparently. Find him in Alpha Theta, in the Sanborn basement, or, now that spring is finally here, on the Green basking in the sun like a lizard. As Academic Chair, he rewards the most motivated members with candy and schmoozes our favorite professors with catered dinner and fancy cheeses.


Non-Academic Chair

Jen Wu '19

Hi, I'm Jen. I'm majoring in QSS (Quantum Submarine Studies), with a minor in Japanese Government. In my free time, I like to play video games and exclude most of the vowels and capital letters from texts. I'm on the Dartmouth Fencing team, where I am one of the co-Captains. It's a great pleasure to put on Alpha Theta events for my siblings, but I really do it so I can control the execs from behind the scenes.


Recruitment Chair

Veselin Nanov '20


Member Development Chair

Lawrence Abu-Hammour '19

My name is Lawrence Abu-Hammour! I'm a '19 at Dartmouth that loves really anything and everything. I am an Engineering Sciences major with a concentration in Mechanical Engineering and a modified major in American History and Arabic Culture and History. I used to be in search of a community where I can feel right at home and today, Alpha Theta is that place. I am a Youtuber and love doing it and have been doing it for a long time now. I love anime, video games, and watching great TV shows and movies. I'm a huge Netflix junkie honestly. Video games from Nintendo and Sony, and any anime but I love comedic animes. I work at the Thayer School Machine Shop and Dartmouth on campus. I'm starting to get into professional photography and want to learn more programming languages. I'm a history junkie and love getting into political discussions or discussions in general. In my free time, I spend my evenings at the house playing board and video games and chilling with my many friends from the house. I love a nice, clean board game. Finally, I'm all around very big on exploring and would love to get to know the membership and any potential new members a lot better. Fun Fact: my guidance counselor from High School was a Dartmouth '73 and is a trustee at Dartmouth and he was also an Alpha Thetian!


Community Service Chair

Dominika Cornejo '20

Hi, I’m Dominika Cornejo, a '20 from Wichita, Kansas. I’m pre-med majoring in Neuroscience and maybe minoring in Global Health or WGSS. On campus, I’m a member of the Dartmouth policy debate team and am the External Communications Director for Globemed at Dartmouth. I’m also the student assistant for the Internships Program at Rocky. Feel free to contact me if you want to learn more about the house or want to discuss finding or getting funding for an internship.


Secretary

Owen O'Leary '19

Owen "Danger Boy" O'Leary '19 is Alpha Theta's secretary this year. You know him! He hails from bucolic Hanover, New Hampshire, and is majoring in Theater at Dartmouth with a minor in Education. What a nerd! Outside of Alpha Theta, Owen sings a cappella in The Sing Dynasty and is involved in theatrical productions through the Theater Department. As secretary, Owen takes minutes, sends emails, and manages listservs. Fun! If you need to get on Fi-Uh, let him know.


Wellness Chair

Tara Sweeney '19

Tara is a ’19 from Oyster Bay, New York and is double majoring in Linguistics and German. If she forgets English words sometimes, it’s because she spent her junior fall and winter studying abroad and interning in Germany. Tara volunteers at the Spark! Community Center, is Vice President of the German Club, and conducts linguistic research as a Presidential Scholar. In her spare time, she likes to run towards bears in Pine Park, run away from said bears, hang with friends, eat dessert, and dance around using her hairbrush as a microphone.
