Give me two words to describe yourself?
MM: [After thinking for about two minutes] Quick thinking.
SM: Genuine and single.
MM: I’m single too … Just want to throw it out there.
How did you guys meet?
Both: The mandatory orientation. We caught each other’s eyes playing a funny game, and it was how the friendship started.
You guys made me include this headline for the article. Why?
Both: Why not? Because our friendship has multiple layers.
How have you gotten involved at Union so far?
Both: Ballroom dance is the club we do together for fun.

MM: I did it for the chicks.
SM: … Me too.
How are classes at Union?
SM: The classes are academically challenging, but I never feel too overwhelmed, but we’ll give them a couple weeks.
