It’s been a wonderful semester for Phi Kappa, and we’ve admitted many new members. We’re so excited to see our society grow and gain so many new siblings. Here’s a short introduction to our young Phi Kappans:
Brother Ryan Mikulka is a first year Journalism major at the University of Georgia (who used to be noted in the minutes as “Septum Piercing”). Some might call him a David Bowie enthusiast who wears pinstripes when he’s feeling fancy. Atop seeking to improve his speaking on the floor, he can also tell you everything there is to know about techno.
Brother William Dasher is a first year, pre-law Political Science major from Millen, GA. When he isn’t playing guiter and writing music, he’s trouncing the competition on his competetive dodgeball team, The Dodgefathers. He hopes to one day be a United States Attorney.
Sister Alexis Robinson is a fabulous junior hailing from the Terry College of Business as a Finance major. She is tall, sassy, and takes getting a weekly hug very seriously. Her style, outspokenness, and riot-inducing sense of humor always adds a positive environment to the Hall.
Brother Hunter Smith was born in Athens, GA while both of his parents were students at the University of Georgia, but was raised in Jesup, GA. He is the eldest son of Tanya Smith and the late Christopher Smith. After losing his father at age 11, Hunter embarked on a lifelong journey to serve the world around him through his leadership, passion, and charisma. He is excited to return to UGA as a first year student double majoring in Journalism and Political Science, and minoring in Sociology. Hunter is also seeking a certificate in Personal and Organizational Leadership with the intent to seek his Masters in Public Administration and law degree. He aspires to serve in state and federal government, as a Senator or Governor.
Sister Halle Hammond is a first year soon-to-be double major in English and Romance Languages from Woodstock (yes), GA. She has a gift for language and a pen that never seems to run out of ink. Her speeches are just as eloquently crafted as her creative writings, and she is a lovely addition to any conversation regarding feminism and The Craft.
Brother Ben Walker, a first year Finance major, was born in Norman, Oklahoma, but he calls Green Bay, Wisconsin home. He loves movies, Memento and Vertigo in particular, but also anything directed by Christopher Nolan or mob related. Despite his film taste, however, Brother Walker is always pleasant, usually smiling, and lovely for a good hug.
Brother Austin Hattori is a first year Latin major and Music minor from Duluth, Georgia. He was homeschooled for much of his life and has now graced our public university campus with his dapper style and rockin’ jawbone (as the multitudes have said). He has also professed a deep love both for Tina Fey and Thai Spoon.
Sister Song Kue is a first year master’s student majoring in Bioprocessing and Bioengineering from Acworth, GA. She just turned 25, English is her second language and you will always know her by the stylish blazers she dons to each meeting.
Sister Sarah Anne Owens is a freshman from Atlanta, Georgia majoring in Journalism and Linguistics. She is a second soprano and loves to sing in the choirs here at UGA. She is addicted to hot tea. Last year, for Halloween, she and her two best friends dressed up as hipster Disney princesses. She was Belle and she sported a sign that said, “Men are too mainstream. I date beasts.” She was President of the Thespian Society in high school and is proud to now be Sister Owens.
Sister Victoria Pekala is a freshman at the University of Georgia from Manitowoc, Wisconsin studying Environmental Economics and Management. She avidly participates in creative writings and loves to take time out of her day to read a classic.
Brother Clark Veazey is a first year Astrophysics major from Melbourne, Australia. He is a former fencer and heavily involved student on this campus, taking 17 credit hours with a hankering for Benthamism and a knack for spontaneously injuring himself.
