Meet Dan Decker ’15!


Name: Dan Decker

Year: Junior, 2015

Major: Communications, German Minor

Hometown: San Diego, CA

Activities/Clubs: I lived in Schoenfeldt for two years and I’ve been living off campus this past year. I was in Latin Dance for two years and was the president for a semester. To be perfectly honest, like most UP students I sign up for a lot of clubs every year but never follow through with any of them. 

Best UP Memory (so far): Gosh, I have so many good ones. Dressing up as cupid for the last two Valentine’s days and delivering valentines to my friends all while wearing a toga and sandals, regardless of the weather was definitely a highlight.

Commons or Cove: Commons for dinner but lunch at the Cove because of the burgers and the fries—especially the fries. 

One Thing on Your UP Bucket List: Before I graduate, I want to organize a campus-wide game of hide-and-go-seek-tag.

Most Embarrassing Thing at UP: When I got written up after being two minutes past intervis. Embarrassingly enough, it was because I lost track of time while watching Epic Rap Battles of History. 

Biggest Pet Peeve: I have so many, but if I have to pick just one…people who use the word “pet peeve” is my biggest pet peeve.

Favorite TV Show: My current favorite would have to be Sons of Anarchy. My favorite show of all time is Better off Ted.

Celeb Crush: Scarlett Johansson

Single or Taken: Sorry ladies, I’m taken

Ideal Girl: My ideal girl has to have a sense of humor, and especially ok with really corny jokes and awful puns. She has to enjoy reading, has to be very driven, intelligent and independent.

Ideal Date: May 25th (just kidding). We go out to a nice restaurant, have pie and then take some heavy blankets to a park and watch the stars all night.

Deal Breaker: Not communicating when there is something wrong. I don’t like playing guessing games. I’m always upfront and I expect the same when it comes to a girl I’m with.
