Movie: I’m a big fan of underdog success stories (e.g., Hoosiers, Rudy, Braveheart, etc.)

Best advice for college students: It’s never too late to chart a new path.  If you find something that interests you, don’t be afraid to investigate.  It could lead to something great.

OSU memory: My favorite memory is attending my first college class (ENGL 1113) and having to sit on the floor because there weren’t enough desks.  It actually helped ease my nervousness because it was unexpected and funny at the same time.  J
