My name is Alex Mines and I am from Peoria, IL. I am a Chemistry major with an emphasis in Criminalistics subletting into DNA Analysis. This is my 2nd year being a Resident Assistant and my 2nd year in Southwest (the first being on 6th floor). The outdoors hold a great appeal to me, especially when it storms. I regurally attend events held by the Confucius Institute, athletic events, and any event where you can win free stuff. This year I really look forward to chatting and getting to know all of you. If you ever have any questions don’t hesitate to ask, one of my favorite things is to talk with people about almost anything.
