Brady Mathieson: Class of 2018

Name: Brady Mathieson 
Major: Computer Science 
Year: As fresh as they come
Hometown: Lincolnshire, IL
Relationship Status: Single
Clubs involved in on campus: Kappa Theta Pi (where I tech) and SHEI Magazine (where I photo)
Fun fact: As both a lover of travel and television, I visited Australia and New Zealand over holiday break to recreate the stops they made on the Amazing Race.
Her Campus: How is your freshman year going? How do you balance being involved in so many different activities?
Brady Mathieson: It was definitely hard at first to adjust to such a big school, but as I joined clubs the huge university became smaller and smaller! I love the diversity of people I’m interacting with day by day, and always end the day with a smile on my face.
HC: What was the first date you ever went on?
BM: We snuck into an R-rated movie and ate two boxes of Sour Patch Kids. The movie was awful and there was no second date, but there WAS a lot of candy. Ah middle school…
HC: What qualities do you look for in a significant other?
BM: I definitely look for a sense of humor above all else. Also, it’s important that the person is a good listener, as well as a contributor to conversation. Watching a lot of Netflix, quoting The Office, and tolerating my ramen noodle obsession is only an added bonus.
HC: Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
BM: Hopefully living in a foreign country working in an innovative business and managing to have someone (and a cat) to sleep next to me at night.
HC: What is your personal favorite Chicago food?
BM: PORTILLOS ABOVE ALL ELSE. Two hot dogs, a large cheese fry, and a large cake shake. The absolute essentials.
HC: Describe your perfect first date.
BM: Any activity that will allow me to embarrass myself as thoroughly as possible sounds perfect in my book.
HC: If you could have dinner with anyone from any time, fictional or non-fictional, who would they be and why?
BM: Pretty sure I would have to choose Taylor Swift. I have so many questions for her: Who are fakers, and why are they going to fake fake fake? How can loving someone be red? And, most importantly, why are you lying on the cold, hard ground?
