My name is Jiahao Han, but I prefer if you call me Jacky. You might guess that my name has something to do with Jacky Chan, but actually no, my English teacher randomly picked this name for me.
I’m an international student from Xi’an, China, the old capital of China for 13 dynasty, including Qin Dynasty. The famous Terra Cotta Warriors were located within one hour driving distance from my home, and yes, I have the autograph of the farmer who found the first warrior.
I still remember I got my first laptop when I was 12, and unfortunately it was stolen 3 months later. (A thief actually went into my house and stole it!) But my love for technology-related stuff never went away. I love photography, video-editing, music, and of course playing video games. (In case you’re interested, my LOL name is BananaHak)
As you can see from the category, I will become a student assistant in the media center next year. I am really excited about the job, and really looking forward to working with you! I will be sitting in the office and waiting for you like this:
Nah! Just kidding, I will look like this:
Anyway, please stop by the media center and find me. We have really cool stuff to show you!

Today at the media center we’ve been playing with a new Pick Punch! We’re recycling old media storage devices, cards, and CDs to make guitar picks sustainably from unused pieces of hardware. Want a guitar pick with your face on it? Bring an old ID down here and punch out a pick! We’re always trying to come up with new ideas about how to use our equipment creatively, so come try your hand at making something new, original, and sustainable at the Media Center in the basement of Bosler! Also, come check out our upcoming event, the Media Exposé on Saturday, April 26! If you want to submit art to show for the Exposé, hurry! It’s past the deadline but we’re still accepting submissions!

Hey everyone! I am Sai Grandhi, a freshman studying Computer Science and Mathematics. As you might have guessed, I am a Student Assistant here in the Media Center. I was born and raised in a small town in India called Rajahmundry. Along with my family, we moved to Lusaka, Zambia in Africa when I was 12. Thanks to my father’s job, we moved to Dar es Salaam, Tanzania when I was 16 years old. So I come to Dickinson with all these experiences and hope to share them with you all. I love watching movies, following cricket highlights and reading novels (dystopian genre).
At present, I work in Tuesdays, 1PM – 2PM. If you would like to pick my brains about Tanzania or Zambia or India or just about anything, feel free to stop by the Media Center.
