Name: Alex Buben
Nicknames? Ever since my friends found out that I'm afraid of the dark, they've called me Nightlight.
Hometown: Yardley, PA
Major(s): Public Policy/German
Graduation year: 2014
What activities are you involved in on campus? Sigma Pi Fraternity, FAC Board
What is your favorite movie quote? "I don't know if we each have a destiny, or if we're all just floating around accidental-like on a breeze, but I, I think maybe it's both. Maybe both is happening at the same time." - Forrest Gump
Who is your celebrity crush?
Natalie Portman - she's intelligent, she's beautiful...what's not to like?
Best advice you've ever gotten? "You miss 100% of the shots you never take." - Wayne Gretzsky
If you could add another "graduation requirement," what would it be? Graduate with a degree from Pratt. I spent one semester there, and I can't even begin to imagine how those people manage to get through those classes. If you can make it through four years of engineering at Duke, you deserve a medal.
Do you have any secret talents? I was once ranked in the top 100 players on Xbox Live for Guitar Hero. I'm not proud of it, but I am a legend on the plastic guitar.
Boxers or briefs? Neither. Compression shorts have changed my outlook on life.
Backstreet Boys or *NSYNC? *NSYNC. "No Strings Attached" was the first album I ever bought on my own.
