Zoe Elizabeth Weland is one of the most endearingly odd people I know. This five-foot, eleven-inch tall junior is quiet when you first meet her, but be warned: if you become her friend, get ready for a whole lot of amazing, ingenious craziness. She is ridiculously witty and weird, so it's not surprising...

You may know of him from his notorious coffee shop, “Cup of Joe”, but there is far more to Joe Bean than his ability to make a mean cup of coffee. Not many students can say that they have lived in multiple countries, are bilingual, opened up their own coffee shop, and are also in a band. Bean has...
