Farhan Abedin’11


Farhan Abedin is a Math major in his junior year at Lafayette College. He has been in the Reeder House for one year, and he enjoys the domiciliary nature of his abode. His alter ego is an amateur musician with a particularly noted bias towards heavy metal and progressive music. In his altered state of mind, Farhan frequently composes epic yet completely unappreciated music. Some of his other passions include chocolate, positive scalar curvature, God, sleeping in the shower, and the mafia (namely Silvio Dante from the Sopranos). It should be noted that the little girl in the picture with Farhan is his 8 year old cousin. As it can be clearly observed, Farhan loves children dearly, as long as they don’t pull on his beard.
