Andrew Santana

Thanks for checking out my awesome blog. My name is Andy and I am government major here on the slope. Born in the rural foothills of San Francisco, I speak in a thick San Francisco dialect. Words like progressive and liberal mean moderate in my native tongue, so I would not consider myself a radical. Rather, I am idealistic and naive college student who wants to just chat about how he sees the world. One of Cornell's founding missions is to provide an education in government and the law in order to right societal wrongs. Therefore, in my own little way I try to share my opinion with the world to right such injustices. But enough about me, I want to hear from y'all. Send me whatever you want at andrew.santana@slopemedia.org
