Reader tributes

From our days in Stark to goading me into partying up in North Quad, I will always remember Atul as one of the smartest most hilarious people I have ever met. We had the strangest of customs where he would teach me about rap music and ebonics and I taught him Yiddish. He always kicked my butt to work out at the gym with him more. When I did go to the gym we would come back and he would school me in supersmash brothers.

As he said to me many times: "You my Mensch Dawg."
