Jared Acosta (Class of 2019)
What advice would you give to incoming Juniors and upcoming Seniors?
“Don’t leave everything to the night before. It kills you every time and I’ve done it every single time.”
Who was the most influential person for you at TAMS?
“Probably Nick. Nick Le. He was the first person I met and we made a little group of friends. We’re still a core group of friends. We used to go up to one of the RA’s rooms and watch a movie or play a game.”
What was your happiest and saddest moment at TAMS?
“Saddest moment getting here, happiest moment leaving. Just kidding, it wasn’t that bad, but high school would have definitely been a lot easier, but I suppose we didn’t come here to make it easy. I suppose my saddest moment was that I missed my Biology A by a question, a quarter of a point, and the professor wouldn’t bump me.”
If there was one thing that you could improve at TAMS, what would it be?
“Definitely WiFi would really help when you’re studying after 1:00 AM. I see why they don’t keep it on, but if you want to stay up and play some stupid video game then go ahead.”
If you redo one thing at TAMS, what would it be?
“Um, I would have taken Perez this semester. Just kidding, but I would probably choose better electives. I some that would have been easier the first two semesters and they were just boring, so yeah.”
Which McConnell staff or resident represents you best?
“Represents me best? That’s tough, I don’t even know how to start. Honestly, I have no idea. I would say Samir from last year. He was always chill and he didn’t really care about many things. He’s just a cool guy.”
