Self-Satisfying Sport Chic

Let’s be frank: the best-dressed person at Reed is probably Samrath. A junior math-stats major who testifies to being “all about my legs,” Samrath is a regular renaissance man who spends his time brunching at Proud Mary, making his own face masks, and dancing. Among his favorite things, lemurs rank pretty high. You can catch him working at the Duke Lemur Center, where he has spent the last five summers, during his time away from Reed. Among some other favorites are poetry and pictures of himself (sources say he displayed framed photos of himself and his lemurs in his dorm during his first year at Reed). If he could recommend one book to our readers it would probably be The History of Silence by Pedro Zarraluki. From this book he learned the power and beauty of every now and then shutting the fuck up and enjoying the silence. Most importantly, Samrath describes his look as “self-satisfying sport chic and always fun.”
