Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to yet another Big Man On Campus Cutie! At six-foot-two, this Native American cutie with cobalt blue hair and strong-willed character is hard to miss. As the bouncy, often outspoken, sassy Vice President of the Class of 2017, Keith Becker has developed a unique presence on campus. While you used to be able to catch him in the chemistry lab, these days you’ll have better luck finding him on the art floor. Somehow, between SGA, working his tail off at Wagamama, and changing majors during his junior year, this Campus Cutie is also competing for the title of Big Man on Campus. Read on to learn more about this handsome contestant…

HCE: How are you feeling about being nominated for Big Man on Campus?
KB: #Blessed. [throws up hashtag with his hands]
HCE: So blessed. You’ll do great. You’re up against some great guys though.
KB: Yeah, I’m a little embarrassed, honestly. [laughs]
HCE: What makes you deserving of the B.M.O.C. title?
KB: I don’t know. What makes anyone deserving of it, really? I don’t even have a talent.
HCE: I’m sure you have something.
KB: I’m not big. I’m not on campus, really. But I am a man. So I guess [I have] that.
HCE: If your life was a TV show, what would you want as the theme song?
KB: Umm, do you know the theme song from “The Mindy Project”? Probably a ripped off version of that, just put through auto-tune. It’s short, sweet, and to the point.
HCE: Not a bad choice. Very pro-Mindy. So what has been your most embarrassing moment at EC? Your proudest?
KB: Most embarrassing? Gosh, umm…there’s so many to choose from.
HCE: I feel that.
KB: Probably when I pretended to be straight for a semester. [laughs]
HCE: Oof. And your proudest?
KB: Realizing that [my ceramics professor] Megumi Naitoh likes me.
HCE: Do you have any heroes?
KB: All my heroes are dead.
HCE: You know, Keith? I was really expecting you to say your mom, but I guess that works.
KB: [Falling over laughing] Oh my God, yes. My mom. I love her. Definitely my mom.
Good luck with the competition, Keith! We’ll be cheering you on!
