    Hello! My name is Kai Tripician, and I'm a senior in the class of 2024 pursuing a self-designed University Major in Ecosystems and human impact.

  • Lilly Hochhauser (she/her/hers)

    2025: Earth and Environmental Science

    Liaison Groups: Class of 2024, Peer Programs / Support Offices, Graduate Students

    Hello! My name is Lilly (she/her), I'm a rising Junior from Park City, Utah, and I’m majoring in Earth and environmental science. Outside of being a Peer Technology Specialist, I am involved in many different organizations on campus. I am currently a member of Wesleyan's Co-ed Club water polo team. Prior to coming to Wesleyan, I had never played Water Polo, I have since fallen in love with both the sport and the people who play it. I also work as a student curator at Wesleyan's Joe Webb Peoples Museum of Natural History. Where I work to catalog, research, and restore specimens from Sonhofen, Germany. This summer, I have started independent research that looks into how earthquakes affect rock melt which I aim to continue through graduation. In my free time, I enjoy cooking, reading, and spending time with my friends in Middletown. If you have questions or concerns, feel free to reach out. I'm looking forward to meeting you all!

  • Natalia Rueda (she/her/hers)

    Liaison Groups: Class of 2025, Accessibility, Transfer Students

    Hi everyone!! I’m Natalia Rueda (she/her) and I am a rising junior double majoring in Psychology and Hispanic Literatures and Cultures with a minor in Education Studies. If you have any questions related to those areas of study, I’d be more than happy to discuss them with you! In my free time, I love being active, whether that be going on walks, skateboarding, playing soccer, working out, or simply spending a day exploring my whereabouts. I’m from New York City, so on a nice summer day, you can find me out with my loved ones, enjoying the beautiful weather and adventuring far and wide. I’m also a huge fan of photography and bass. Here at Wesleyan, I’ve had the privilege of exploring some of these interests through Women’s Club Soccer, Wes Photo Club, and Private Music Lessons. I also work at Summerfields and recently participated in Wesleyan Preschool Math Games as a Math Ambassador. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or just want to chat!
