Meet Campus Cutie Gavin Gronenthal

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


Name: Gavin Gronenthal


Major: Writing for TV and Film


Year of Graduation: 2016


Hometown: Lawrenceville, New Jersey


Dream job: I hope to write for a TV show, like a sitcom.


Biggest Inspirations: Phil Hartman who’s a really funny old comedian who used to be on “SNL”, Michael Schur who writes for “Parks and Rec”, and Jim Henson.


Favorite movie: “The Dark Knight”, because I’m a big comic book guy, but I also really like “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”, because I think it’s a very funny movie with a surprisingly human story.


Favorite TV shows: “Parks and Rec”, “Archer”, “Seinfeld”, and “Breaking Bad”.


Favorite TV character: Andy Dwyer from “Parks and Rec”.


Hobbies: I like to go to the movies with my friends and go on walks a lot. I like to talk about movies a lot too, and TV, a lot of TV. I also read comic books.


Dream date: A nice lunch, and then we would go for a walk around the Common, and then we could just hang out together for a little bit.


Looks for in a lady: I like people who are inherently nice and have a very good sense of humor. It sounds basic, but it can be harder to find than you think. Very nice hair and I really like smiles. If a woman has a very nice smile, I get easily disarmed.
