Her Campus: What brought you to Pitt?
Jake Snell: I love this city and I spent a lot of time as a little kid here, visiting my relatives. I just love the school and campus. Oh, and my tour guide was really hot—that helped.

HC: What’s your favorite Pitt memory?
JS: My first week and weekend living in Towers freshman year. It was one of the most ridiculous times in my life.

HC: What’s it like being a mechanical engineer?
JS: Honestly, it sucks. It’s just a lot of work. It’s interesting though. And fingers-crossed, hopefully it will pay off.

HC: What is your favorite food?
JS: Anything Italian.
HC: Okay, but if you had to pick something specific…
JS: Lasagna.

HC: How about your favorite movie?
JS: Aladdin, because I’m looking for my Princess Jasmine.

HC: What are your turn-ons in a girl?
JS: Her smile is a big one. And she has to have a good sense of humor. And she can’t be afraid to be dorky and weird.

HC: What are some turn-offs?
JS: A big turn-off would be any girl who is too cocky and thinks she’s better than everyone else in the room. I like a girl that’s beautiful but that’s humble about it. It’s also a turn-off when girls are close-minded and snobbish.

HC: What’s your best pick-up line?
JS: Okay, don’t judge me for this: You go up, limping, to a girl at the bar. You ask her for help. She asks, “What’s wrong?” You say, “I must’ve hurt my knee when I fell for you.” It’s cheesy but I like it.

HC: Describe your perfect date.
JS: I’d take my date sailing on a private yacht.

HC: Who is your celebrity crush?
JS: Mila Kunis.

HC: Have any special talents?
JS: I play guitar and piano.
