This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at SAU chapter.

Name: Tim McNicholas

Relationship status: Single.

Hometown: Oak Lawn, IL

Major: TV/radio production and journalism 

Campus involvement: Features Editor of “The Buzz,” campus reporter

Post grad plans: I originally wanted to get a job right away and be a reporter. That’s still something I’ve got my sights set on,  but I realize if I want to be a reporter I’d have to leave home. I’ve had some second thoughts, and I think it might be better to get another job at home or just hang out for the summer.

Favorite book: Moby Dick by Herman Melville

Favorite food: Deep dish pizza from Giordano’s

Favorite superhero: Batman, he’s the best hero around. He doesn’t have any powers but he’s just a regular guy saving the day.

Hobbies: I like to write, I like to exercise, hang out with my friends, and play softball.

One thing people don’t know about you: I was offered a football scholarship to go here, but I turned it down.

Dream job: To be an investigative reporter on the national news or a novelist

Idol: Muhammad Ali

Celebrity crush: Kate Upton

Favorite restaurant: Giordano’s

Favorite spot in the Quad Cities: Bent River

Cook for a girl or be cooked for? Cook for a girl—I’m pretty good with any kind of pasta.

Idea of a perfect first date: Go to a White Sox baseball game and then maybe get a few drinks after.

Traits you look for in a girl: creative, funny, maybe a little bit weird 

Deal breaker: Stupidity

Sexiest thing a girl can wear: in public—I like a red dress. In private, the answer would be nothing.
