Known and loved by many, Lorenzo Manalo, or DJZO, is a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity and can be found dancing (impressively), taking over the DJ booth at Brats, and parkouring through Madison. He loves puppies, Christmas, Gordon’s Turkey Wild Rice soup (and basically anything from Gordon’s), and just making other people happy. Introducing our celebrity of the week…Lorenzo Manado.

Finding puppies on State Street…
Parkouring, scootering and rollerblading through Madison, and sitting on Bascom writing poetry…to show my sensitive side
What is your major and dream job?
I am majoring in biology and thinking I may do something in the medical field. I hope to do something where I can help people.
I’m also planning on minoring in killin’ the club/DJing/male modeling.
What is your biggest accomplishment?
I was the top post of reddit and made the front page with a picture of my six year old cousin DJing his mom’s wedding in the Philippines.
The smell of Sellery bathrooms on a day-to-day basis, and nuts…”allergies” :/

Who is your favorite artist?
Lil bow-wow, pre-2008 Chris Brown, Christina Perry…again because I’m sensitive, Salvidore Dali-(he thought I meant real art)- sorry I’m well versed in fine arts as well

How do you feel about being campus cutie?
I am truly honored thank you so much… can’t wait to see what I’ve won but honestly I can’t wait to fax this article to my parents they will be so proud of all my accomplishments…this most likely being somewhere on the list. This is like Christmas morning for me.
