HCIU: Tell us a fun fact about yourself…something most people don’t know.
Vince: Purdue was the first college I was accepted to when I was a senior in high school. Since I’m out of state and didn’t know anyone in Indiana anyway, It was pretty much a coin toss between going there and going to IU.
HCIU: Thank goodness you didn’t pick Purdon’t! What do you like to do during your free time?
Vince: I like to read to keep up with DC politics as much as possible, but besides that I like to run or go to my favorite Bloomington bars with my friends.
HCIU: What’s your best memory from college?
Vince: Definitely the spring breaks: so either Windsor, Canada or Panama City, Florida but this year’s spring break (a Caribbean cruise) will top both.
HCIU: What’s your favorite spot on campus?
Vince: Wright Quad- I lived in Wright as a freshman and have a lot of fun memories of it.
HCIU: As far as graduation goes, are you excited or are you dreading it?
Vince: Neither, I’m dealing with it. It has to happen sooner or later, and I’ve accepted that. I definitely never wanted to be that person who finished college early, but still don’t want to be that guy who’s here ’till he’s in his 30s
HCIU: Do you have anything left to do on your bucket list before graduation?
Vince: (Besides having sex in the stacks of the library?) But seriously: one more spring break, one more birthday celebration, one more Little 500, and an awesome graduation party to wrap up the greatest four years of my life.
HCIU: What are your plans for after graduation?
Vince: No idea yet! If I don’t find a job in Indy or Chicago I’ll be back home finding a writing/ government related job in Washington D.C.
HCIU: How would you describe your personality?
Vince: Easy going, active, always looking ahead
HCIU: What’s the first thing you notice about a girl?
Vince: Height (although my girlfriend is only just over 5 foot). But tan skin and dark eyes will do the trick.
HCIU: What’s the most romantic thing you’ve done for your girlfriend?
Vince: Cooking dinner. I mean she took me to Niagara Falls for New Years so I can’t really top that.
