The executive board of Slivka is a group of students that plan events for current residents, alumni, and faculty fellows. They are in charge of most events in the dorm, from the smaller daily events to the larger events like Slivka Formal. They are always happy to answer any questions you have about Slivka or anything else!
President: Christina Wu
Hey, I’m Christina Wu (she/her) or Tina for short. I’m an econ major and business institutions minor in the class of 2024. I was born and raised in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois and luckily prefer the cold weather over the sweltering hot sauna of summer. Slivka has definitely become my family away from home and you’ll find me helping out with events in the rec lounge. If not, I might holed up in my room playing Valorant or TFT or Genshin, stress cleaning, or grinding for a midterm I procrastinated on. Definitely reach out if you feel like taking an econ class, want some study tunes, need a caffeine drinking buddy, or just want to chat. I’m super excited to hang out with y’all!
Vice President: Kayleigh Peng
Hi! I’m Kayleigh Peng (she/her), and I’m a computer science major and design minor in the class of 2023. I was born in Cleveland, but Chicago (yes, real Chicago) has been my home for the past 15 years. Some things I enjoy doing are taking walks, playing Animal Crossing and Tetris 99, and baking. You can find me either in the rec lounge creating chaos or at the Ford autobay pretending to be an engineer. Definitely reach out if you’re interested in anything I mentioned before or if you’re just looking for a friend!
Treasurer: Justin Chen
Hey everybody! My name is Justin Chen (he/him), and I’m studying industrial engineering in the class 2023. I was born and raised Chicago all my life (actual Chicago, not the suburbs) , so if you need a recommendation about Chicago, let me know! If I’m not currently suffering from classes, I’ll probably be in the rec lounge suffering from the thought of classes. I also really love cooking so if you want to share recipes or hacks, feel free to reach out!
Academic Chair: Jeremy White
Hello! My name is Jeremy White (he/him), and I am a chemical engineering major in the class of 2025 originally from Los Angeles, CA. I enjoy politics and history, particularly outside the United States. In that vein, I’m an international studies minor and involved in Northwestern’s Model United Nations program. I’m also very much a morning person, and enjoy spending time in the rec lounge during the quieter first hours of the day as well as during Slivka’s many lively evenings. So if you ever want to chat about East African politics or are awake at 7AM, feel free to reach out. I’m looking forward to a great term as your academic chair!
Fellows Chair: Christopher Lee
High people! My name is Christopher Lee (he/him) and I am a mechanical engineering student in the class of 2024. I’m from the city suburbs of Minnesota, so I took a tropical vacation and moved to Illinois for college. I really like folding paper, drawing, and other visual arts (ask me if you want to join any art clubs!). I also like running outside, paleontology, and digging holes in the ground. You might find me with aluminum foil and glue sticks in the DR or in the rec lounge kitchen washing Jason’s dishes. Feel free to reach out to me about anything at my Discord (@1000 paper cranes for a hat#2131)!
Social Chair: Jason Hoang
Ello 8) My name is Jason (he/him). As a current industrial engineer in the class of 2024, I spend my time sleeping, napping, taking a break, and of course snacking. While I’m not extremely busy with those, I make a mess in the kitchen (ty Chris), play league (toxic I know), and play board games. I am awake at ungodly hours of the day and love just sitting on my 6ft snorlax plushie or walking around the lakefill. I am also part of the marching band, the formula racing team, Supply for Dreams, science olympiad, and VSA. If you ever want to talk to me, I will simply open my door if you bring me a juice box 🙂
Philanthropy Chair: Alex Gerber
Hi! I’m Alex (she/her), and I’m a biomedical engineering major and Spanish minor (class of 2025). I’m from the Chicago area, but I’ve lived in a few different places. In my free time, I like to play piano, do ceramics, play with my dog, and spend time with friends and family. If you ever have any questions, concerns, or just feel like talking, please feel free to reach out!
Facilities Chair: Cameron Briskin
Heyo, I’m Cameron (he/him), I’m a ’25 studying manufacturing and design engineering. I’m a Jewish, trans guy from Cleveland, Ohio. I love overanalyzing movies, listening to the same music over-and-over again, and spending time doing even the most mundane tasks with friends! If you have opinions on murder and/or mental health podcasts, 2014 Youtube trends, or any of the Disney Channel Original Movies, same. Feel free to hit me up about all things Northwestern and Slivka (I see y’all prospective students, I was you just last year!) or for basically anything!
IT Chair: Jessie Sheflin
Howdy! I’m Jessie (she/her), and I’m a sophomore (class of 2025) studying biomedical engineering with my sights set on a MS in computer science. I’m from a ranch in the mountains of Livermore, Colorado, about an hour away from Ft. Collins and Colorado State University. In my free time I like to play video games, play bass, read books, and bike around campus. The quickest way to my heart is with a bag of Takis <3. Please feel free to leave all questions and concerns nailed to my door, signed in blood.
Publications Chair: Mariama Bah
Hey-o! My name is Mariama Bah (she/her), I am in the class of 2025 studying computer science in the School of Engineering. I was born in Evanston, but raised in the small, far-northern suburb of Zion, Illinois. I love creative hobbies like drawing (digitally or traditionally), crocheting, and writing. I also love to read and spend time browsing books at nearby libraries. I am an animation nerd, and I love discussing cartoons new and old. When the weather is nicer, you might see me biking around campus, looking and listening for wildlife. Feel free to ask me for book or cartoon recs!
