Meet this week’s Campus Cutie, Becca Quirke! This hilarious sophomore is a talented sailor and is always craving chocolate!

Hometown: Rye, NY

Major: Government and American Studies with a minor in Economics

Relationship Status: I’ve got a blank space baby… & I’ll write your name

Special Talents: I can breathe air out of the tear duct in my left eye… ask me to show you ;)

What is your life motto? “I have so much homework. What movie should I watch?”

We hear you are very involved in the Sailing Team at Conn. What made you want to sail in college?  

I just wished to be apart of something bigger than myself. Sailing is like a full time job in college. We’re away almost every weekend for two seasons, but the team is awesome. We really tend to make seven-hour van rides and countless nights spent in hotels entertaining. Also, I love being in and around the water, so I take scuba to supplement my time spent not at practice.

How do you feel about being Campus Cutie?

Honestly, it’s not that I feel lucky. I simply feel blessed.
