Veronica Little - President/Supreme Despot
Veronica Little is from Parkland, Florida, but acts like she's from Miami. Extremely interested in historical conspiracy theories, she's dedicated her undergraduate education to the search for the real remains of James A. Garfield, who she claims lived well into the 1890s and is the true inventor of velcro. Veronica will major in philosophy to prepare herself for a career as a starbucks barista or hostess at PF Chang's (whichever pays better), but she ultimately plans to retire early and donate her estate to Temple Grandin, her childhood hero. Veronica lives in Lewis Hall and is in the process of getting adopted by Professor/Sorcerer David Proctor.
