I got the chance to sit down with this well accomplished businessman. Read on to see why he is this week’s Campus Celebrity

Her Campus: Who is your biggest celebrity crush?

Rob Denham: Lauren London!

 

HC: Why did you choose UC and what’s your favorite thing about it?

RD: The “home away from home” feeling I got the minute I stepped onto campus, the beautiful architecture throughout campus, and the co-op program.

 

HC: I’ve recently heard that you’ve been tapped into Collegiate 100. Congratulations! How does it feel?

RD: It feels great, knowing that your hard work and dedication around campus is being recognized! Although I’m not the head man in charge, my background work was noticed by my colleagues and I gladly appreciate it!

 

HC: What do you think is your biggest accomplishment since entering UC?

RD: Being a Dean’s List recipient for the past school, and being tapped into Collegiate 100 Black Men’s Honorary.

 

HC: What’s the weirdest thing we would find in your fridge?

RD: My keys (I tend to forget those in there from time to time when coming home to make a sandwich).

 

HC: Where do you see yourself after graduation?

RD: After undergrad, I will go directly into my master’s program whether I’m here at UC for the joint six year program in the Masters of Community Planning or at a grad school down south (preferably in New Orleans or Atlanta).

 

HC: What’s the perfect meal a girl can cook for you?

RD: Steak and potatoes!

 

HC: In closing, how does it feel to be considered a Campus Celebrity and how do you handle juggling all these involvements?

RD: I’m humbled that Autumn considered me as a “Campus Celebrity” because I don’t see myself as one at all. It takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and time management to juggle all my involvements but I wouldn’t have it any other way. This has made my collegiate career fly and in the end it’ll all be worth it! Thanks for considering me as a “Campus Celebrity.”
