My time finally came to interview someone on campus and I instantly knew who I wanted to interview! I decided to interview Holly Rice, a student and new Hall Director here at UW-Stout. I have known Holly since fall semester of 2013 and we are great friends! She is a very energetic, driven, and smart person who can always make you laugh.
So, here is my wonderful and hilarious interview with Holly!
Q:What do you do at UW-Stout?
I am currently the Hall Director of Tustison-Oetting in CKTO, a full-time employee of University Housing that supervises the RA staff and meets with on-campus students on a daily basis. I am also a senior on campus and will be graduating in May with a degree in Science Education with an emphasis in Biology and Chemistry. I have been here for 4 years and I love it!
Q: Favorite place around campus/Menomonie?
I really like the Red Cedar Trail that goes down by the river and by the Passover Bridge. Walking on the path during any season is really pretty, especially in the fall. I don’t ever walk the trail in the winter but everybody during every other season I do!
Q: Would you rather swim with sharks or get stung by a jelly fish?
I guess it would depend on the information. Like if I was in a cage, I would swim the sharks and if someone was with me if I got stung by a jellyfish and they could pee on it, then it would be ok. There are stipulations with both but I would rather swim with the sharks.
Q: What was the best first date you’ve ever went on?
In my home town there is a ridge that overlooks the whole city, my fiancé and I drove up there, packed a lunch and enjoyed a picnic together. Then we watched the sunset, it was beautiful.
Q: If you could have one superpower for a day, what would it be and why?
Ooh! I think I’d have a superpower where I could snap my fingers and whatever I want would appear. It would be awesome because then I wouldn’t have to get up to do anything. Like in Harry Potter when they say “ackio” and something just comes to them! That would be great!
Q: If you had to eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Mashed potatoes. I really enjoy them and since they are versatile, I could eat them with every meal. I can mix them with chicken, corn, gravy, anything. I like them a lot!
