Hi, my name is Pirzada Ahmad, and I am an '18 from South Florida. I'm majoring in Government, minoring in WGSS. I plan on going to law school after I'm finished here. I love sports, care deeply about issues of social justice, listen to an unhealthy mix of top-40 pop/edm and trap music, and enjoy a good meme every now and then. Please feel free to reach out to me regarding the house (whether that be an issue, concern, question, or comment). I am also super friendly and down to grab a meal and talk about Alpha Theta any time in general - hiiiiit meeee upppp, fam.

House Manager

Keira Byno '19

Hello, reader. Welcome to the (Interim) House Manager 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!


House Manager

Will Maresco '19

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 house. 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.


Member Development Chair

Jennifer Wu '19

I’m Jen, and I dev mems! 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 focused on East Asia double major and a Government minor. When I am not at Alpha Theta, you can find me on the Japanese Floor or on FFB/2FB somewhat doing work. Because I study on FFB, I 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 left over, so go ahead and finesse a drink or meal out of me. On campus, besides doing secretarial work for Alpha Theta, I am active in Dartmouth Japan Society and Dartmouth College Fencing Club. During my free time I enjoy eating, reading, playing video games, adventuring/traveling, and admiring art.


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.

I live off of DDs spicy salmon avocado sushi and KAF chocolate milk. I will be Majoring in either Sociology or Native American Studies, and Minoring in Studio Art.


Jock Chair

Hallie Sala '19

Hallie Sala is not particularly athletic, and considers her (re-)election as jock chair a damning indictment of the entire house. A Russian major and math minor, Hallie enjoys writing, kayaking, knitting, trawling the internet, and composing angry haikus about DDS (“Efficient markets / through arbitrage, find balance. / DDS mocks me.”). You can contact her by blitz or by whispering her name three times into a Scrabble board while waving a ripe avocado.
