Dani Truglio: Skip the Pick Up Lines, and Take Her for Froyo and a Walk Along the River

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Columbia Barnard chapter.

Name: Dani Truglio

Hometown: Port Washington, New York

School/Year: GS/JTS 2017

Major: English and Modern Jewish Studies

Relationship? Single

Tell us a little about what you do on campus: I write for both Spec and Her Campus. I’m also VP Sisterhood for Sigma Delta Tau. As we all know, school can get extraordinarily overwhelming so I really us my extracurriculars as an outlet.
Favorite place in NYC: To be completely honest, I don’t have one favorite place. I’m in love with the entire city.
Ideal date: Anything with food involved, topped off with a walk by the water.
Best and worst pick up lines you have heard: 
  • Best: No such thing. Just keep it real boys. 
  • Worst: “Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?”…makes me cringe
One thing you have always wanted to try: I’ve always wanted to go skydiving, but who knows if I’d actually have the nerve to do it.
Ice cream or froyo? Froyo, hands down.
Favorite 90s band: I’m going to have to with the boy bands. I don’t think I can choose between N’Sync and Boyz II Men.
If you could meet anyone past or present, who would you chose and why? Meryl Streep. I absolutely idolize the woman. 
Best class you have taken: The Bloomsbury Group with Professor Rosner. If I could take it again, I would.
Favorite place to study: You can always find me in Butler, but my favorite place to study is the NYPL. When its warm out, Bryant Park is also lovely.
