Meet Alex Seidler (not Seedler, contrary to his best efforts to confuse the greater BC/worldwide population) a junior in the Carroll School of Management that’s trying to get through his marketing degree one day at a time, and never doing it without a smile. Alex spent his last semester in Australia, but since he’s been back he has made himself very comfortable back on the 5th floor of Fulton – home of his favorite spot to nap – and off-campus on Foster St. where all the fun happens. Alex has a big heart, a great personality, and isn’t afraid to laugh at his embarrassing moments. He’s smart, he’s fun, and he’s a great friend, if you’re good you might be able to beat him at golf, and if you splurge on a cookie for Alex at Hillside or a cupcake for him at Addies, you’re sure to have his heart. #AmIRightAl?
