Chris Gaarder is Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Claremont Independent and a senior at Claremont McKenna College studying International Relations. Chris loves voyaging to Star Trek conventions; jumping on the couch to watch The Office, Parks and Recreation, Arrested Development, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek: TOS, and Star Trek: TNG on Netflix; climbing into bed; and running into funny posts on 9GAG. He gets unhappy when people confuse politics and policy, and is more than slightly nervous around the squirrels on campus.
