Fernanda “Fern” Horrillo has served Sid Richardson College in several capacities throughout her time at Rice, from Beer Bike coordinator to floor rep. This year, she applied her artistic talents to her role as an O-Week adviser and helped decorate the Sid Rich commons with chalk art inspired by the college’s theme — TomorrO-Week — including this photorealistic chalk drawing of an astronaut. Horrillo, who’s studying civil and environmental engineering, based her image on the films “Interstellar” and “Gravity.” (Photo by Tommy LaVergne)
