Andrew Mades

With a charming smile and a killer sense of humor, Andrew Mades excels at all the history classes he takes and probably even the ones he doesn’t take. You might find him throwing a frisbee on campus or reciting the Declaration of Independence. Either way, stop by and say hi, you won’t regret it.
