Emily Waite
Emily Waite | Class of 2020 | Major: Engineering Physics | Hometown: Franklin, MA
In case you were wondering, I am awesome. That's all you really need to know. If you want a longer bio, then I guess here it is: I grew up in a boring town in Massachusetts called Franklin and went to Franklin High School. Here at Cornell, I am part of the class of 2020 and I plan to major in engineering physics. In terms of band, I am part of both the pep band and marching band and am in Rank E for Excellent.

Harrison Hidalgo
Harrison Hidalgo | Class of 2020 | Major: Mechanical Engineering | Hometown: Litchfield, New Hampshire
I am a real nerd, I run D&D. If you want in, talk to me. I love comedy and have a rather dark sense of it so be warned. Rank Z is ze best.
Jameela Suleiman
Jameela Suleiman | Class of 2020 | Major: Government & Religious Studies | Hometown: Temecula, California
Yooooooo....So to sum myself up in one sentence: My name is Jameela, I'm from SoCal, and I'm a Muslim-Buddhist Palestinian -Mexican Bisexual American woman. Try saying that ten times fast. So no,I'm most definitely not a Trump supporter, in case you're so dim-witted that the above description didn't tell you that already. I like food. And kittens. And if you're not a Disney fan, I'm sorry, but I don't trust you..Kay I'm done.

Maya Bradley
Maya Bradley | Class of 2020 | Major: Government & Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies | Hometown: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Rank E Leader '17
I'm the one walking around pretending that they know what they're doing, but if you talk to me I'll probably invite you to Zumba so you can laugh at me trying to dance. Interests of the moment include Game of Thrones, confused-looking prefrosh parents, caffeine, and band (of course).

Michael Earle
Michael Earle | Class of 2020 | Major: Mechanical Engineering | Hometown: Ossining, NY
Pep Band Secretary '17, Lynah Telephone '17-'20
Likes: Shouting, hockey, motorcycles, sailing. Dislikes: Pandas, concrete canoes, when birds walk across the road. When you consider the classification of food, you need to not only look at the physical structure, but the evolution. Wraps are in the same family as sandwiches

Natalie Parker
Natalie Parker | Class of 2020 | Major: French and Nutrition | Hometown: Ridgefield, Connecticut
Pep Band Manager '19, Alumni Relations Chair '18, Historian '18
I used to study Math and was pre-med, but then I decided to be a French major and drop the whole doctor thing. I get way too excited over BRBAA meetings and I used to bring PMilk to parties. I love Birkenstocks, bubble tea, Pep Band, and screaming during games. I don't know how to play Davy. Someday I want to be a Dietitian for low income families and make the world a healthier, happier place :)

My favorite foods are corn bread and frozen peas. Every night I fall asleep listening to the audiobook of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Audrey Guo
Audrey Guo | Class of 2021 | Major: Biomedical Engineering | Hometown: Basically Princeton, NJ
Head Librarian '18, Treasurer '19
Hi! I'm an (sad) engineer, so you can probably find me in Duffield complaining about how messy my classes are when I'm not in the middle of band things. I enjoy cats and other soft animals (rip allergies) and do origami and read in my spare time. I don't actually play clarinet, I just pretend I do, so don't let any lack of musical skill scare you away from band. :Dc

Caressa | Class of 2021 | Major: Biology | Hometown: Chesapeake
Fundraising chair
hello I am either hopefully a bio major or ece major. I have a pet mouse named clover she’s the love of my life along with my dog Le Pew. It’s kinda sad that I can’t think of anything to say except introducing my pets but it’s fine. My favorite food is Mac n cheese. The end.

Jinny Gui
Jinny Gui | Class of 2021 | Major: Electrical and Computer Engineering, maybe CS minor? | Hometown: Chapel Hill, NC
Watches too much YouTube and Twitch, maybe the occasional 'TV' when the Olympics or NCAA basketball tournament rolls around. Possibly the most random person, but only when I'm very tired and done with the shyte that is lyfe. I have recently realized how much fun yelling and hockey combined are. Find me "living" in Duffield. #ZBestRankZ

Hey guys, I'm Kwame, from Poughkeepsie NY, don't let that fool you though I am not a real New Yorker. I was born in Michigan and spent a lot of my childhood in Connecticut. Anyways I'm one of the few band kids in AEM and I hope to one day be a successful Wall Street investor, but who knows, life is full of surprises.

Matthew Ziron
Matthew Ziron | Class of 2021 | Major: Operations Research and Engineering | Hometown: Hebron, CT
Greetings, I am Matthew I of the soon to be Zironian Dynasty. I like to indulge in the freshest and dankest of memes just like any other red (and white and blue) blooded American. I also enjoy SpongeBob, spending time with man's best friend (the clarinet), and doing things that irritate others ever so slightly. Come talk to me about things such as why Dan Quayle is the greatest Vice President of all time, and all your life's questions will be answered, including but not limited to: "Why is this guy's best friend a clarinet?"

Robbie Goldberg
Robbie Goldberg * | Class of 2021 | Major: Computer Science | Hometown: Weston, Florida
Sad BOI *who now has* a bio (also Section Leader 2019)
Hi! I'm Robbie. I love video games, stand-up comedy, EDM, and BoJack Horseman. I've only been in marching band for one semester (and pep band for two), but band has become my whole social life at Cornell, and I love it.
All things in moderation, including moderation.

Jess Sakamoto
Jess Sakamoto | Class of 2022 | Major: Engineering | Hometown: Huntington Beach, CA
I'm actually a violinist-pianist-percussionist trying to blend in with the clarinets. It's going well so far - some of them have noticed, but surely the audience won't. I love salad and procrastinating homework with Ava.
Life is good!
