*editors note: its never going to happen


What is your most embarrassing moment?

One time in my freshman year seminar, I opened up my computer after forgetting to close some “choice web pages” the evening before. The whole class got to hear what porn sounds like.

Settle down or hit it & quit it?

Hookup culture is so prominent at this day in age. 30 is the new 20. No, I don’t want to settle down but also not about the hit it & quit it. Keep it going?! Might as well get your moneys worth.

Most awkward date you’ve been on:

What’s the one thing you don’t understand about the opposite sex?:

I am going to refrain from answering this question because I do not feel like debating opinions.

Describe your ideal date night in Boston:

Ideally it would be snowboarding for the day.

….But since I live in Boston with no transportation except for my long legs and UBER,–>

A fancy restaurant for a loose dinner date, followed by drinks at an upscale lounge or bar.  Call it Cliche, I do what I enjoy.

Favorite Suffolk memory:

  • Mini Bar Monday
  • Tunnel Tuesday
  • Storyville Wednesday
  • Julep Thursday
  • Icon Friday
  • Whiskey Saigon Saturday
  • Cure Sunday


There isn’t a specific memory I can come up with. This is kind of like asking someone: What’s your favorite song? I have a lot of great memories from Suffolk and have met a lot of awesome people that I will know for the rest of my life. Moving to Boston was the best choice I have ever made.

What makes a girl dateable vs hookup-able?

If she’s dateable she won’t put out right away. (Most of the time). Hookup-able…Isn’t that self explanatory? Your place or mine?

Any advice for the ladies trying to win you over?

Your mom will love me.

Your dad will be skeptical of the idea at first but will sooner or later warm up to it.

Mackenzie's the name, Campus Correspondant for Suffolk is my game.
