Stephen Lee | RUG 2
Stephen “Smiley” Lee is a sophomore business major from Irvine, California. If ever you need to conduct business in China, he’s your man because he’s fluent in Chinese.

Julianne Tanella | RUG 6
Picture a woman, waterskiing competitively with great white sharks snapping their jaws all around her while she sings “Before He Cheats”, and you’ve got an only slightly fictionalized depiction of Julianne Tanella. She sings with the SMU Belle Tones, is on a competitive water ski team, has broken 13 bones, and has been cage diving with great white sharks.
