Hi Everyone! My name is Mela Brown and In super excited to be serving as the Vice Chair of SOCS this year! On campus, I'm an active member of Women and Law and I am a Pitt Pathfinder. After graduating, I will be attending law school to get J.D. and then hopefully focus in government or corporate law work. I love to read and spend time with my dog in my free time! :)

Which building on Pitt's campus would you be and why?

I feel like I would be the Starbucks in Amos Hall. There is always a lot going in there and the workers keep a really tight schedule to maintain order. I relate to this HEAVILY, also I am just a fiend for Starbuck's seasonal drinks.

If you were chancellor of Pitt for a day, what is the first thing you would do?

If I was chancellor of Pitt for a day I would enforce that the ice cream machines in the eatery would be open till minimum 1 AM every day. I feel like every time I'm like "wow i would love ice cream right now," I go and the machine is put away for the night. This is genuinely detrimental to my already unstable pre-law college student mental health and I feel like this needs rectified immediately.

What is a question that is always on your mind?

A question that's always on my mind is why people walk slow. This is a cross that I bear anytime i walk anywhere on campus. My legs are really long and i essentially sprint everywhere and for some reason, think everyone should move at my pace all the time. It's unrealistic but something I ponder often.
