Chris McVey

Hi everyone! My name is Chris and I am a junior at NYU's College of Arts and Science studying Computer Science and Economics. I am originally from Bucks County, PA, but I currently live in the East Village, where I love to go for runs at the East River track and try all of the different restaurants in my area - with my current favorite being San Marzano (on 7th and 2nd - make sure to get the brussel sprouts!). On campus, in addition to working with our admissions center as a Student Ambassador, I am a College Leader at CAS, a member of our Economics Society, and a frequent competitor in our HackNYU hackathons, which I promise are not as nerdy as they sound!
