NSO Leaders

NSO leader Joanna HoJoanna Ho


Hi everyone! My name is Joanna, and I’m very excited to be one of your 2015 NSO Leaders! I’m an engineering major in the class of 2017, and I’m originally from Sunnyvale, California, about an hour away from San Francisco. In my free time, I enjoy hanging out in nature through hiking and backpacking, as well as yoga, zumba, and just generally hanging out with the amazing community Mudd has to offer. Orientation was a great introduction to this community, which is why I’m looking forward to it so much, as well as the new Orientation Adventures! I can’t wait to meet the incoming class, and I hope you are just as thrilled as I am!

Hey everyone! My name is Achintaya, though most people just call me Ace, and I’m super excited to be one of your NSO Leaders for 2015! I’m from Fremont, California, which is an hour’s drive from San Francisco and I’m an engineering major in the class of 2017. In my free time, I love spending time outdoors, usually by throwing around a Frisbee, and playing video games, like League of Legends and Portal. I am also passionate about music and play three different musical instruments: the piano, guitar, and saxophone. I’m really looking forward to meeting the incoming class and making Orientation as awesome as possible! With the new Orientation Adventures, it will be nothing like we’ve seen before, and I hope everyone is as excited as I am!
