Name: Rita Thorsen
Year of Graduation: 2018
Major/Concentration: Psychology and Women’s and Gender Studies
Relationship Status: In a domestic partnership with Swannie Willstein <3
Favorite Place to Study: 4th floor lib or the cage for people-watching.
Hobbies: Dogs, drinking unhealthy amounts of coffee, the internet, losing my ID, doing fun outdoorsy things with my friends in hopes that REI will recruit us for an ad.
Favorite Sport: In general, cross country, but watching crew has a special place in my brain.
If you had to move to a different country, where would you move and why?: Somewhere in Northern Africa or the Middle East because I know next to nothing about those areas, and because I’d love to learn Arabic.
Favorite meal in the Caf and why?: Crispy tofu and potstickers are my absolute favorites, I go nuts. I’ve also been known to occasionally have marshmallow mateys for three meals in a row, major props to Malt-O-Meal.
Favorite Movie: The entire Fast and Furious franchise.
Favorite pick-up line: Hi, I’m Rita.
Favorite TV Show: Avatar: the Last Airbender or Bob’s Burgers.
Describe yourself in one word: Delightful.
Call or text?: Definitely text, calling is for some reason terrifying. Seriously, calling Domino’s is stressful enough to preclude me buying pizza.
What is your ideal date?: Something simple, like going for a walk and then you buy me lots of food and tell me I’m pretty. Or the midnight premiere of Furious 7 (it’s April 3rd, start planning).
Finish this sentence: A guy looks his best when… no comment.
Finish this sentence: A girl looks her best when… still no comment.
Anything else you want the people of St. Olaf to know?: Polar bear babies are smaller than human neonates, usually weighing slightly more than a pound at birth.
