Campus leaders reminisce What will the Class of 2013 miss the most from the old building? Acacia Dai:

Minh Bui: ‘Žȹ‹ŠÂ?Â‘Â›Â˜Â˜Â–ČąÂŠÂ‹Â˜Â&#x;ŽȹŠžÂ?•˜‹

Class of 2013 President

’••Ž—’ž–ȹ ˜ž›Â?¢Š›Â?

“

To be completely honest, the place I’m going to miss the most is the bathroom right upstairs from the audlob. It’s always been the best bathroom to go to because no one ever uses it and in the winter its always so warm. I always remember gossiping with my friends in there since freshman year. — Minh Bui

Allison Chou: ¢–ȹŗ

SGA President

�

“

I’ll miss Gym 1 the most. It’s the place where some of my favorite TJ memories took place – Homecoming pep rallies and dances, basketball games and Monticello Maniacs heckling, and President Obama’s visit. Not to mention wearing hairnets during the rollerblading unit in gym glass! — Allison Chou

Naomi Naik: ‘›Žœ‘˜•Â?ČąŠÂ&#x;ÂŽ

Threshold Editor-in-Chief

“

Threshold has been my favorite part of TJ. I made so many lifelong friends and was able to pursue my passion. — Naomi Naik

�

Lauren Revere, Kayuri Shah and Priyal Gandhi: Â˜Â˜Â–ČąĹ—Ĺ–Ĺœ Techniques Editors-in-Chief

“

106 is our home. We have a couch, and we always have snacks. It’s really comfy, and we hang out there even when we are not working on the yearbook. — Lauren Revere

�

�

Relay for Life Event Chair

“

I’ll miss the millenium courtyard the most. It’s nice to be able to spend lunch outside after a long morning of being cooped up indoors. — Acacia Dai

�

Alex Sands: ÂŽÂ—Â’Â˜Â›Čą˜ž—Â?ÂŽ FBLA President

George Wang: Â˜Â˜Â–ČąĹ—ĹšĹ?

Teknos Editor-in-Chief

“

I’ll miss Room 147 where Teknos spent many late nights working. I stayed there once until 11:30 p.m. — George Wang

�

“

With renovations underway, I will sorely miss the Senior Lounge. It was a great spot to sit, talk and relax with friends or play an intense game of ping pong . — Alex Sands
