Nick: Marketing

Connor: Accounting

Relationship Status:

Nick: Let me answer for Connor: It’s complicated...As for myself, I am in a happy relationship. HC: Describe each other in three words.

Nick: Tender, perspire-y… I only got two. 

Connor: Bodacious, fun-loving, and firecracker.

HC: What is it like living in Loyola together?

Nick: It is great being in the presence of God; I feel like he watches over us more now that we live here.

Connor: I am thankful that being thrown in here has changed my Jesuit values, and I can honestly say I am a changed man from last year.

HC: Where do you spend most of your time at Fairfield?

Nick: Room 355 Kostka

Connor: Ditto.

HC: Favorite place to eat off campus and best thing to eat there?

Nick: Chipotle. Sometimes one burrito isn't enough so I’ll do two. What’s in the burrito? Double steak, double rice, double sour cream…I’m a plain kinda guy.

Connor: Sunday mornings I like to get myself a BEC and head to Sasco Beach. Sometimes get lost out in the water.

Connor: I would like to consider myself the assistant goalie coach for club hockey.

HC: What is the most embarrassing thing you have ever done?

Nick: This year at the townhouses, I was walking home from 12 block where the hill is and I slipped and fell in front of about 50 underclassmen. I got up, slipped and fell again. Then I ran away and said you guys are all idiots… then I slipped again. That was three slips.

Connor: I accidentally threw up on Nick on my birthday weekend last year... 

HC: If you could be any superhero, who would it be and why?

Nick: Ant Man because everything on me would grow.

Connor: Or shrink.

Nick: No, he has the ability to shrink or grow.

Connor: Who has the hottest girlfriend? Superman, because isn't it obvious for the girls.

HC: Where do you see yourself after graduation?

Nick: Probably faking my birth certificate so I can come back to Fairfield and do this all over again.

Connor: Living in my mom’s basement.
