This week’s Campus Cutie is Nicole Wu! This (in denial) senior loves coffee, math, and teaching. Read on to get to know Nicole!
Name: Nicole Wu
Hometown: Wakefield, MA
School/Year: Lynch School of Education, 2016
Major: Elementary Education, Math/Computer Science
Activities/Clubs: Marching Band, Pep Band, Student Admissions Program
Best class: Not really a class, but it counts for credit, so prac/student teaching
Worst class: America and the World
Bapst or O’Neill: I’m in a committed relationship with Bapst
Favorite place to eat on campus: Hillside – Baja Chicken panini, frips, and herb cream cheese are all I need in my life
Biggest pet peeve: Loud chewers, people who talk in the library
Favorite thing about senior year: Hasn’t happened yet, but Senior Week because I’ll get to spend lots of time with my favorite people without having to worry about homework.
Most embarrassing moment: First time I’m sharing this one because I’m that embarrassed (S/O to all my Newton friends, you’ll get a kick out of this one). One time last semester, when I was taking the bus back from Newton campus, I didn’t get off at Main Gate thinking the bus would make another stop at Conte. I should have known something was terribly wrong when the freshmen getting off the bus were giving me funny looks, and I was the only person still on the bus as the doors closed. Next thing I knew, the bus was turning around by St. Ignatius and swiftly heading back to Newton. Turns out it was Eagle Direct, NOT Newton All Stops. I was forced to ride the bus all the way back to Newton again, before finally making it back to main campus. So yes, I am a senior and still don’t know how to work the Newton bus #UpperProblems
Fun fact: I am the 7th BC Eagle in my family!
Favorite movie: Remember Me
Favorite TV show: Friends
Celeb crush: Zac Efron
Dream job: Teacher, so I guess dreams do come true?
Favorite BC sport: Hockey, for sure
Favorite hangout spot on campus: The Chocolate Bar (or anywhere that has coffee, really)
Relationship status: Single
Ideal guy: Honest, good sense of humor, likes coffee (obviously)
Ideal date: Fancy dinner and a walk along the beach, preferably around sunset (hopeless romantic, sorry not sorry). But honestly, you could buy me a cup of coffee at a nice coffee shop, and I would be perfectly happy.
Deal breakers: Too much facial hair, doesn’t like country music
Advice to incoming freshmen: Get involved or try something new! You’ll make awesome new friends, while doing something fun.
Even though there’s only a month left of school, if someone wants to teach Nicole what TransLoc is, hit her up in the Chocolate Bar.
