Charles Hess is a sophomore Writing student that additionally studies English, Art History, and Philosophy as a means of assembling a more curious spectrum in the refinement of his work; in other words, he is a pursuer of questions that he knows will never be answered in his lifetime. To him, the universe is merely made up of matter, empty space, and opinions. Yet, despite all of this, he remains an optimist. He will still sit down and indulge in a hot cup of coffee with you, no matter what state of mind you possess. Scrita Manent–“what is written endures”.
