Jonathan Xiong

My name is Jonathan (Jon) Xiong, and I am very excited to serve as an Allocations Committee liaison for the 2020-2021 academic year. This is my first year within SGB, but I cannot wait to hit the ground running. I am from “just north of Philly” like everyone else. Outside of SGB, I am part of Global Brigades, an organization trying to help local communities internationally in a sustainable way. I am also very interested in research. More specifically within the immunology field. When I have free time, I usually work out. Feel free to contact me via email. #H2P

Favorite Quote:

“Look again at that dot. That’s here. That’s home. That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives…the history of our species lived there—on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam” Carl Sagan
