Josh Gavin 


Graduate Student (2020)


Hi all! I'm Josh Gavin, a native Minnesotan which gives me 50% resistance to frost damage (yes, I wore this same fall jacket through winter) but also lowers my Speech trait by 20% (ope). I've spent time volunteering with Chemists-in-the-Library and SciMentors, and donating blood and platelets. I went to a small liberal arts college called St. John's University, up the road in central MN. I love me a good MN brewery, rooftop dining in the summer, and concerts at the Minnesota Orchestra (virtually even). I also play the euphonium, and spent my first year at UMN playing with the university band.
