Hi! My name is Anna Buchmueller (she/her), and I am a senior from Westchester, NY. I am double majoring in Theater and American Studies. I am very involved in theater on campus, whether through Second Stage or the Theater Department. I am also a member of Alpha Delta Phi, a co-ed Greek literary society. If I’m not in rehearsal or doing homework, you’ll most likely find me watching a movie or reading a book. I am so excited to share all of the amazing technological resources Wesleyan offers with you!

Hello! My name is Kai Tripician, and I’m a sophomore in the class of 2024 interested in learning just about everything. I grew up in a small island town on the coast of southern New Jersey. When not in the classroom, you will probably find me birding around campus. At home, I’m usually working as a stand up paddleboard instructor, befriending the neighborhood crows, playing board games, or in the middle of a D&D session. I’m incredibly excited to be one of your Peer Technology Specialists, and more than happy to answer any and all of your questions, so don't hesitate to reach out to me at!
