HC:  What do you look for in a girl?
NP:  Well to be honest, a lot. Someone who is sociable, loves the outdoors, adventurous, spontaneous, and loves traveling.
HC:  What is the nicest thing you have ever done for a girl? 
NP:  After Christmas, I picked up my ex-girlfriend (girlfriend at the time) from the airport, and I got her a huge bouquet of flowers.  I then drove us back to Greek Row and told her to get ready.  Afterwards we went to The Roof restaurant, right next to Temple Square which, is a really fancy restaurant. She had no idea that any of this was going to happen!  I gave her a bunch of presents, but we weren’t supposed to get each other any.  So basically, it was super cool. I think that is the best Christmas I’ve had so far!
HC:  Describe your ideal date.

NP:  First, it must be somewhere tropical like Hawaii. In the daytime we would go for a hike or to a crystal clear lake with a waterfall for a picnic. At night, we would go to a super fancy restaurant for dinner and after we would go for a night drive somewhere with an overlook.

HC:  What is your favorite pick up line?

NP:  (thinking) Hmm… I lost my phone number, can I please borrow yours?

U of U girls are the best because… they do business during the day and party up at night!


I am currently attending the University of Utah as a freshman, major in Accounting. I love fashion, style, writing and networking, that is why I love Her Campus Utah.
