MUN Roommate Needs You To Be Quiet So That They Can Launch A Missile
90 ST. THOMAS MORE RD — After spending most of Friday night locked in her bedroom, resident Model UN member Cora DeTat (MCAS ‘23) emerged to warn her roommates that the United States would soon be launching a missile.
“When the Peruvian delegate was assassinated by Brazil, it spurred U.S. intervention in South America,” said DeTat. “I was the one who got to announce that the projectiles had entered foreign airspace, so I really just needed the dorm quiet for a hot minute.”
DeTat’s roommate, Jenn Eddy (Lynch ‘23), explained that DeTat hopes to one day parlay her MUN participation into a job at an embassy.
“She visited the UN building once on a 6th grade field trip and apparently hasn’t stopped talking about it ever since,” said Eddy. “I’m really not sure why she didn’t just go to school in DC.”
When asked about her devotion to International Studies, DeTat explained that she feels a sense of pride in her major.
“Yeah I get it, premed is hard,” said DeTat. “But like, I had to apply to be an I.S. major and it wasn’t easy. Only a select few applicants were chosen based on the likelihood of them eventually staging a coup in a developing country.”
DeTat also took it upon herself to emphasize the vast array of opportunities available to students in her position.
“There are so many incredible internships available,” she said. “For example, I’m currently in the process of applying for a top secret position at a government agency. I’m literally not supposed to be telling anyone about this so I’m not going to say anything else.”
When pressed further about the nature of her internship, DeTat revealed that the government agency in question has an “abbreviated name that starts with a C and ends with an A.”
