Vishnu Gupta ’18,  Co-Multimedia Editor
Vishnu is a prospective Econ and Math double major. He comes of India, where they correctly call Math as Maths. These nuances greatly agitate him. He refuses the accept the imperial system, and occasionally miscalculates the weather because of his stubbornness to use Celsius measurements instead of Fahrenheit.

Also, his favorite TV show is Doctor Who.
