Student Spotlight: Roommate Edition! (Part 1)

ImageMe with my two roommates (: From left to right: Dera, Loren, Madison

Name: Loren

Hometown: Milwaukee, WI

Year: Freshman

Major: Undecided (thinking about Anthropology & American Culture Studies)

Dorm: Dardick

What’s the best thing about the dorm you live in?
Dardick is right on Shepley Drive, so you can get things delivered right to Dardick (like freshly baked Dough-to-Door cookies). And the campus shuttles (the Circ & the Green Line) stop right in front of Dardick.

Are you involved with any extracurriculars? If so, what?
I am currently in a Thyrsus One-Act play and am applying to become a tour guide.

Describe your most enjoyable memory of college so far:
As I’m typing this I’m actually at O’Hare, because my FOCUS class, Theatre as a Living Art, took a trip to Chicago this weekend to see four shows. I got to miss class on Friday and we saw great theatre, explored Chicago, and bonded. I’m sad it’s over, actually. The cold reality of my five-page paper due Tuesday is coming upon me as I wait in the airport. The girl next to me is doing her Calculus WebWork on her iPhone.

Favorite thing to eat at WashU:
It depends. If I want a real meal, my favorite thing to get is a Grilled Chicken Club sandwich – the asiago-ranch spread here is to die for. If I just need some midnight food, a half and half* is the way to go.

*half and half (n.): an order of half fries and half chicken tenders. A favorite snack among students, especially after midnight.

Fun fact:
I have freckles on my tongue! And my eyes.
