Meet Ben Forster, this week’s campus cutie! Ben is a New Englander who spends his time at BC doing a ton of extra-curriculars, including intramural sports. You can find him relaxing outside Bapst (just don’t all mob him at once, ladies), and perhaps even doing a dead-on imitation of the Gingerbread Man from Shrek. Oh, and he loves Emmanuelle Chiriquí from Entourage (Googled her— she’s hot).
Name: Ben Forster
Hometown: Suffield, Connecticut
School/Year: A&S, 2013
Activities/Clubs: Boston College Republican Club, Appa, and some absurd number of intramural teams
Best Class: Israelis & Palestinians
Worst Class: Labor Economics, which is as much work as it sounds.
Bapst or O’Neill: Ya know, I used to be strictly O'Neill and thought Bapst was a silent prison, but it's growing on me. It's about a 50/50 split now.
Favorite Place to Eat: If it didn't have those unbelievably long lines, it's Hillside by a mile. Or the Matt Saffi football tailgate on Shea.
One thing most excited about for senior year: The possibility of getting a mod.
Favorite BC Sport: Toss-up between football and hockey.
Favorite Hangout Spot on Campus: Bapst Lawn. Great place to just hang out or play a little soccer.
Advice to Freshmen: Stepping outside of your comfort zone and signing up for things like Appa, Kairos, and 48 Hours give you a new group of friends and some of the best week(ends) of your life.
Biggest Pet Peeve: City driving- it sucks.
Favorite Movie: The Godfather
Favorite TV Show: Modern Family or Boardwalk Empire

Unique Trait: I do a mean impression of the Gingerbread Man from Shrek.
One Word to Describe Yourself: Candid
Celeb Crush: Emmanuelle Chiriquí (Sloan from Entourage)
Ideal Girl: Attractive, shorter than me (not too difficult at 6'3"), and a girl who's close with her family, because I am with mine.
Ideal Date: It really doesn't matter where we go, just that we have a good time. Dinner, movie on the couch... Dealer's choice.
Turn Ons: I love a great sense of humor, and a girl who's an athlete.
