Why do you love dancing?: I’ve always felt dance is the visual embodiment of music. And also, girls love it when you can move on the dance floor.
Something on your bucket list: Backpacking across Europe starting from the English countrysides and through the continent to the Italian beaches.
Celebrity Crush: Joseph Gordon-Levitt. As a man, sophistication and class are all you really need. And maybe the ability to look good in a tux.
Favorite Quote: “Have the serenity to accept the things you can’t change; the courage to change the things you can; and the wisdom to know the difference.” – Reinhold Niebuhr
Every guy needs these three things in his closet: A sweet suit and tie set, an acoustic guitar, and a poster of the Chicago skyline.
Ideal Date: We’d have a classy dinner on the top floor of Hancock with the city lights flickering below. Or a picnic on the top of the Mansueto library.
Most romantic place on campus: The Reg. Nothing’s hotter than watching people cram silently at 3 am.
What Aaron’s friends say about him: 
“Aaron is a man of much swagger and many friends. He likes making people happy. He likes hugs. He likes sunsets and long walks on the beach. He’s just a good person.”
“Aaron is a guy with a kind soul (some would say the kindest soul). He can be silly and tease his friends, but there is no doubt that he cares deeply and fiercely about them and that he will always be there for them.”
