CV Executive Council

Veda Tsai
I’m Veda Tsai and I am a Healthcare Studies junior. I hope to pursue a career combining my love for medicine & law. I am currently interning at a specialty pharmaceuticals company working on international contracts. I’m one of our National Merit student directors, a captain for Mock Trial, an officer for Alpha Epsilon Delta, the chair for the Student Advisory Board for the Center for Asian Studies, and on the mediation team. My favorite event has been the National Merit Book Party. In my free time I enjoy running, painting, and cooking, all while watching Netflix.

Olivia Cooper
I’m Olivia Cooper and a sophomore Political Science major. This is my second year on the CV Council and I love planning all of our amazing events. I am also involved in the John Marshall Pre-Law Society on campus, and after college my plan is to attend law school. In my free time, I enjoy playing tennis and petting dogs.

Caleb Fick
I’m Caleb Fick and I’m a pre-law student in my second year majoring in political science. I participate in Moot Court and am a member of the John Marshall Pre-Law Society. I am enjoying my first year on CV Council helping to plan events for y’all. I’m originally from St. Louis, so I love the Blues and Cardinals, as well as playing with my dog in my free time.

Lane Hughes
My name is Lane Hughes and I’m a sophomore Biology major on the pre-med track. When I’m not busy with exams or watching shows, I enjoy volunteering around DFW and playing Nintendo games. I’m also a UTD Student Ambassador, a National Merit Ambassador, and Secretary for the American Medical Student Association. As a side hobby, I enjoy collecting Converse; I’ve got a #UTDschoolspirit pair and I’m one pair away from completing the rainbow. I can’t wait to show everyone when we get back to campus!

William Novalany
I’m William Novalany. I’m majoring in Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Computer Science. I work on programming projects, like developing an advanced autoclicker and production process planning software. Over breaks, I work as an intern at a precision machining company, where I production-engineer, assemble, and inspect products like aircraft landing gear components, missile battery casings, and naval electrical enclosures. In my free time I read, play video games, and write music.

Vineet Sadarangani
My name is Vineet Sadarangani and I’m a junior Healthcare Studies major on the Pre-Med track. On top of being part of your CV Council, I work three medical jobs, work with my fellow officers for WeCare UTD, and work as a chair for the Student Advisory Board for the Center for Asian Studies. In my free time you can find me exploring local coffee shops and aesthetic restaurants, cooking up a storm in the kitchen, shopping for more Vineyard Vine shirts or giving friends my expert advice.

Merry Wang
My name is Merry Wang and I'm a junior Biochemistry major. After undergrad, I hope to attend medical school. One of my favorite things to do pre-pandemic was attending Thomsen Fund events, especially the performances put on by the Dallas Theatre Center. The Honors College offers tickets to students for free! In my free time, I enjoy photography and going on walks.

The Collegium V Constitution provides a framework for the privileges and responsibilities of the Executive Council and Collegium V members.

The CV Lounge

One of the benefits from participating in Collegium V is gaining access to the CV Lounge. Located in the Green Center (GC 1.202), the Lounge is the place where CV students come together to work and socialize 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The Lounge is comprised of five rooms: two computer rooms, the Clark Reading Library, a TV/video room, and a small kitchen.

If you are having issues with accessing the CV Lounge please email Cheryl Janes or bring your Comet Card by the HWHC Office in GC 2.2.
