The Octagon

Jackson Margolis
(Read as a rhythmic poem) Sophomore Jackson goes to CD. He came here just months after he turned 3. He has a cat that he calls Shamoo, But he named him before the so-called abuse. His passions include the Octagon and math, But he definitely likes showers more than baths. He is returning to the Octagon as a page editor, But he has never watched the show "Jersey Shore." He loves to dance; He believes he can fly. But no one can describe him as very shy. Contact at
