Major: Mechanical Engineering
Hometown: Oxford, OH
Activities on Campus: Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity
HC: Why did you decide to go Greek?
CB: I wanted to surround myself with successful people who would help me grow as a person.
HC: What is your biggest challenge being the president of a fraternity?
CB: Keeping my own emotions in check, and thinking about only what is best for my chapter. The right decision is not always the easy decision.
HC: What is your favorite thing about Ohio State?
CB: The sports. We have a championship-caliber football program, regardless of what the media may say. We also have lots of other great sports, along with a strong intramural program. It makes it easy to stay in shape when you can play on three to four teams every quarter.
HC: What is your least favorite thing?
CB: I really wish the off-campus area could be a little nicer. I come from a small town, so I like to have nice lawns in front of houses. Off-campus here is very crowded and looks very run-down in places. Also, the crime is a real problem in some places. We try to help with our Block-Watch program, but we can’t help other areas.
HC: What is your favorite place to hang out around campus?
CB: The Pike House. The Oval is a fun place too.
HC: What would you like to accomplish before you graduate?
CB: I would like to set things in motion to have a permanent [Pi Kappa Alpha] chapter house at Ohio State.
