A Little About Our Writers…
Raktim Basu ’24
Raktim is from balmy Chester Springs, PA, with a major in the oh-so-longly-named Applied Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (Biotech for the sane) and minors in Biochemistry and Global Studies! Raktim is involved in a variety of RSOs, the most notable ones being RSA (Resident Student Association), HENS (Honors Engaging in Neighborhood Service), and Galadrim and Critical Failure, UD’s tabletop roleplaying clubs! If he’s not looking at weirdly shaped organic molecules, he’s probably shuffling his Magic deck for the next duel of Commander, sharpening his pencil for the next game of D&D, or taking a nice walk around campus!
