A Day in the Life of a Chatham Squirrel

Her Campus Chatham: What are you studying right now at Chatham, and what made you decide to study it? 
Sylvia Squirrel: Thievery and Cuteness. It runs in the family. I’m a third generation Chatham student on my mom’s side.
 
What organizations are you involved with at Chatham? 
The Squirrel Club mostly. We meet in trees and trash cans around campus and talk about the snacks we got that day.
 
What would you like your lasting mark on Chatham to be?
I’d like people to remember how cute and unattainable I am.
 
Why did you choose Chatham?
My family has been here for generations!
 
What advice do you have for prospective students making their college decision?
Give me your food… and don’t try to touch me…
 
 
What would be your dream job? 
Just being fat and happy, really.
 
What are some goals you have for post-grad? 
What’s “post-grad” mean?
 
How has Chatham changed your life? 
It’s certainly helped me put on the pounds! All my friends at Pitt say I’m looking quite plump these days! 
 
What’s the best advice you’ve ever gotten from a Chatham faculty or staff member?
“Do you want a nibble of my bagel? Oh you’re so cute!”
 
What do you love most about Chatham? 
The friendly people who share their food with me!
