SUMOskinny magazine is the ultimate guide to college life. Part local, part national, and all college.
@PrezHuddleston, the fake and entertaining twitter account pretending to be UNH's President Mark Huddleston, has finally been revealed. Senior and Virginia native Thomas Gounley, also known as the guy that ran the Boston Marathon while juggling and who invented the popular phrase 'Hallowcoming,' is the man behind the mask.
Encouraging people to donate to the senior gift by promising to reveal himself at the Senior Lobster Bake, Gounley increased participation this year more than any in the past. Starting this twitter account at 2am on March 8, 2011, Gounley had no idea that it would become such a phenomenon that even USA Today and the Washington Post would take notice.
Gounley is graduating today with a B.A. in English/Journalism and a B.S. in Environmental Conservation Studies. During his junior year he was the executive editor of The New Hampshire and this past fall he spent the semester in New Zealand. Whether he was actually on campus or not, PHudd kept abreast of UNH's shenanigans and never failed to keep us laughing with his tweets.
While he has decided not to pass on the torch and instead stop while he's ahead, @Prezuddleston will still live on in our hearts. Be on the lookout for his live tweeting this afternoon at graduation, and follow both @PrezHuddleston and @tgounley on twitter. For more information about Gounley, check out his tumblr.
Congrats to Thomas Gounley and the UNH Seniors on graduating, you will be missed.
