Hometown: Ithaca, N.Y.
“I don’t do a lot of small talk, but there’s been a lot of ‘Ahh, we’re seniors but it doesn’t feel like it!’”
“‘What is your name?’ I’m really bad with names. I asked the same person five times once.”
“I’m sick of talking about my major. I want to make a ‘Biology and Journalism’ T-shirt.”
Hometown: Oak Ridge
“For me, it’s my family asking me, ‘How do you like college?’”
Hometown: Holly Springs
“‘Do I want to go to TOPO?’ The answer is always yes.”
“I’m tired of upper- classmen asking me, ‘What’s your favorite part of living on cam- pus?’”
