New member alert! Meet our newest HC writer, Virginia!

Name: Virginia Maloney

Year: Junior 

Major/minor: Communications: Digital Production and Cinema Studies/Marketing (I’m pretty much learning how to become a bigger movie nerd than the one I already am)

Career goals: Honestly? I’m not sure. Some days I hope I’ll go on to work on a film set, other days I want to be a park ranger. Maybe I’ll be a nature documentary filmmaker? Stay tuned and find out. 

Netflix Binge: Am I basic if I say The Office? 

Favorite pick me up movie: Secret Life of Walter Mitty HANDS DOWN. It is so inspiring, funny, and beautiful. I highly recommend it!

Favorite Song atm: Dreams by The Cranberries holds a special place in my heart. 

Favorite book: My favorite book has to be Fahrenheit 451- who doesn’t like a good dystopian novel!?

Hobbies/Passions: I love pretty much any and all creative outlets, hiking, and everything cat related! 

Defining life experience: In my junior year of high school I shaved my head, predominantly to raise money for childhood cancer research and partly as a Britney moment. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made- it was for a great cause and it made me realize that change should be faced, not feared. 

What are you most proud of yourself for: A few years ago I gave myself a mantra of sorts- “No more ‘what ifs’”. It’s really helped me to live my life to the fullest, and has led me to opportunities I never thought I would experience. I’m proud for incorporating it into my decision-making process, and even more proud that I manage to stick to it each day <3

Dream Vacation spot: Right now it’s probably Scotland and it’s probably Scotland because I’ve been watching Outlander recently. 

Favorite Adelphi spot: It’s gotta be that set of desks beneath the main staircase in the library. There’s a huge window looking out over a koi pond in front of you and an indoor fountain behind you when you sit there- it’s basically campus heaven. 

Interesting fact/Adelphi story: I spend my summers living in California, working in an 1800s gold mining town turned state historic park! Catch me climbing mountains, giving park tours, and pretending to be a cowgirl from May to August…yeehaw.
