What is your favorite part of going to school at UChicago so far, and why?

My favorite part of going to UChicago is that it is actually a fun place to be. The academics are top notch but that doesn’t stop a lot of kids here from hanging out and having a good time.

Assemble a starting lineup of any current NBA players, and explain your choices.

  1. Steph Curry– no explanation needed.
  2. Andrew Wiggins-I’m from Minnesota and like the Twolves…plus his bounce is ridiculous.
  3. Gordon Hayward-he’s my go to 2k player and usually gets me the win when Noah and I play in our dorm.
  4. Blake Griffin-“he didn’t even stretch thoooo.”
  5. DeMarcus Cousins-Boogie is a beast and just destroys whoever is guarding him.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

I would go to Italy. I went there for two weeks the summer before junior year with my high school and it was awesome. The architecture and culture there was really interesting and I would love to go back. 

You can only listen to one musical artist for the next month. Who would you choose, and what body of work?

Kanye. You wouldn’t even have to force me to do it because I would probably be doing it by myself already.

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat? Why?

Snapchat. Now that I’m at college and away from my high school friends, this is probably the social media outlet that lets me stay in touch with them most easily.

What show can you watch over and over again and why?   

White Collar. The cliff-hangers in the show are just ridiculous. I can never watch one episode at a time and am currently going through the show on Netflix for the third time.

Where is your favorite place to hang out in Hyde Park and why?

53rd street. It’s nice to get off campus to eat and the trips to Harold’s or Valois with my friends are always fun.

Clearly Harold’s is a team favorite…
