Meet the Head Gryphons: Eden Weinflash

All summer long, the Office of Residence Life will be doing a series for incoming first-years and returning students to get to know their 2016-2017 Head Gryphons. Head Gryphons are residential student staff leaders who serve as role models for the entire Gryphon Society. They are encouraged to promote an inclusive environment in which individual and community rights are upheld. The 2016-2017 Head Gryphon staff ranges from juniors to graduate students and comes from various academic backgrounds. To get to know them better, each Head Gryphon wrote about who they are, what they are involved in, and what they love about Lehigh. First up is Eden Weinflash!
