Do you know all the words to Old Nassau?
“Tune every heart and every voice,
Bid every bank withdrawal;
Let’s all with our accounts rejoice,
In funding Old Nassau.
In funding Old Nassau we spend,
More money every year.
Our banks shall give, while we shall live;
We’re funding Old Nassau.”
-Jen Rexford ’91
What do you hate most about Princeton?
The lack of unconditional love for our sports teams. It’s kind of a shame, especially since we’re currently 11th in NACDA’s overall rankings of Division I athletic programs. And it’s not like we have to pay for seats – my friends at state schools have to enter a lottery just to be able to BUY tickets to football and basketball games.
What’s your drink?
Anything, in moderation. Bad puns aside, I’m happy with any variation on the Werther’s Original shooter. They’re dangerously good.
How often do you cook?
I don’t cook while on campus, unless you count making Jello shots as “cooking.”
What’s your favorite medication?
Midol. Just kidding; I don’t have a uterus. My fave is actually that Theraflu Warming Relief cough syrup.
What’s hanging above your desk and/or bed?
Another bed. And above that? Shower curtains, courtesy of my roommate, who has all of a sudden decided to become ultra light-sensitive. Why yes, we do live in fear of fire safety inspections.
Where do you do your best thinking?
In the shower. I always remember that I have to do this or that, but I can’t do it immediately because… I’m in the shower.
4 am or so. I take naps as nutritional supplements.
New Butler or Old Butler?
This is Princeton. Can’t I have two Butlers?
What do you think of Dean Malkiel?
She’s a fine scapegoat.
Where is the worst place on campus?
Wilson. Does it have any redeeming qualities whatsoever?
Who is your mortal enemy?
Antwaan Mandel-El ’11.
When’s the last time you used cash?
Last night, to buy a bottle of dragonfruit VitaminWater from a vending machine.
In 25 years, I will be…
Married with children. And hopefully, reading PrincetonFML and bitching about how much better it was in my day.
Where do you go to study alone?
My room. It’s a quad, and my roommate also goes to bed unusually late, so I can close the bedroom door and put in some quality moderation time.
What makes someone a Princetonian?
Seersucker shorts and a grosgrain ribbon belt.
