My name is Elizabeth Cao and I'm a sophomore at University of Wisconsin-Madison. I'm majoring in International Studies with a concentration in Politics and Policy in the Global Economy and Mathematics (Kind of random, I know). Outside of classes and clubs, you can find me watching old episodes of Arrested Development or 30 Rock, eating a panini or cheering on the Wisconsin Badgers.
