Alex House

Email Address:

Hey Rocky! My name is Alex, and I'm from Upton, Massachusetts. I'm a senior in the English department, also completing a certificate in French. My academic interests are all over the place, but I do my independent work primarily with film, and I have a special affinity for the Coen brothers. Aside from ingesting stacks on stacks of reading, I spend most of my time training and competing as a varsity fencer. If you want any advice on handling the demands of being a student-athlete, or time management in general, I'm a good person to talk to. I love to chat, especially over a nice shot of espresso (I'm a bit obsessed with coffee), so don't hesitate to reach out! Looking forward to meeting you guys.
