Ben Ellis
Major: Biological sciences
Standing: Junior
Born and raised in Colorado, Ben moved away as soon as they possibly could, living in Wasilla for a few more years before finally settling down in Fairbanks. They plan on getting their degree in biological sciences, and then to move on to a postgrad degree in biomedical engineering outside of the states, before settling down in Ireland. For fun they enjoy fencing, listening to music way too loudly, and playing games with their friends.
