This is Bernard.

There are students who carry around more than one cell phone (so I’ve heard); he carries around more than one computer. He has his ASUS notebook for coursework, and his Samsung Galaxy S6 lite Tablet, complete with stylus, for art.

If you think you hear Frank Sinatra crooning in our halls, chances are good that it’s Alex and his portable speaker.
