Meet This Week’s Goofy Babe, Shelby Dern!

Imagine someone who loves to serve her community, is heavily involved on campus and enjoys a good ole’ fashioned baseball game. Sounds like the perfect girl, right? She is! For this reason, she has already been swept up by one lucky guy. Meet this week’s Campus Cutie, Shelby Dern!

SD: “I am in Gamma Phi Beta and am on Panhellenic.”

HC: What passions do you have in life?

SD: “I really enjoy running and working out. I also like to do service, so I spent my summer in the Dominican Republic teaching kindergarten.”

HC: Tell us some facts not too many people know about you!

SD: “I used to wear Sesame Street boxers to school that said ‘Talk Nerdy to Me’ and I can walk on my hands!”

HC: What’s your favorite thing about USD?

SD: “I love being really close with our class because it’s small. I also love that some of us are able to live at the beach and that all of my friends are back from abroad.”

HC: What’s your favorite hidden gem in San Diego?

HC: What do you look for in a guy?

SD: “He has to be really funny, sweet, taller than me, and at least pretend to laugh at my jokes.”

HC: Do you have a favorite quote?

SD: “If you’re a bird, I’m a bird…just kidding…kind of.”
