random student interview by kaitlin williams

Welcome to the random
student interview,
where the official lan-
guage is English.
So Molly, what are you study-
I'm undecided right now. I've got
to figure that out.
No kidding. You're a freshman.
Get on that. So what are you
taking right now?
I'm taking Great Books. I'm taking
Spanish 277, a psychology in lin-
guistics class and a science semi-
nar on oceans.
OK. So you're obviously slack-
tHablas Espafiol?
Si, un poco.
Yo tambien. Fantastico. And
we're done with that. This is
America. I would continue, but
I don't think that whatever
readership I have would appre-
ciate having to go to Google
Do you learn dolphin as a part of
your ocean class?
That would be incredible, but
sadly I'm not.
They might add it to the curric-
ulum you know. They get those
weird mini-courses going. I

wouldn't doubt it if Intro to
Dolphin popped up.
So have you already backpacked
all of your classes for next
I'm actually going to talk to my
adviser in a couple minutes. I
haven't backpacked yet.
Oh OK. You're still young and
think they can actually help
you. How proactive. Have you
gone to advising before?
Umm, during orientation.
Were they really any help?
Yeah, actually. Considering the
amount of classes there are at the
University, in order to help, having
someone who can point you in the
right direction in terms of what
classes to take is very helpful.
Yeah. Is undergraduate advis-
ing paying you to say this?
No. I mean, even if I routed
through the course guide there's
no way I could know completely
what classes are going to be appro-
priate for me.
Yeah. So, you must be Honors
since you're in Great Books. How
great are those great books?
Umm, they're very difficult. I
mean, who am I to say what books
are the best or contribute the most
to society or anything like that?

You're an Honors student! I
did Honors in my day. Ivaguely
remember reading an awful lot
of Greek stuff.
Yeah for sure.
So, you're undecided. What
would be the thing you're most
interested in going into? You
know, if money and job security
weren't a persistent and fright-
ening worry.
Yeah, unfortunately that wor-
ries everyone. But currently, I'm
actually thinking about going into
speech pathology.
OK, cool.
Although I'm not so sure. There's
still so much I have to learn about
how to get into careers and dif-
ferent things. Right now what I'm
trying to do is try to think about
what kind of career I want to have
and what kind of degree might get
me there. And at the same time, it
has to be a degree that I'd be inter-
ested in studying, in a subject that
I would want to know.
OK wow. Still so young. Call me
when you give up and decide to
become an English major like
me. I would say you're focusing
right in on something wonder-
ful there. I was pre-med once
and full of optimism. Those
were the days...

So, why the Spanish language
class? You obviously tested out
of the requirement.
Yeah I tested out of the require-
ment. It's just a personal thing. I'm
a very talkative, outgoing person,
and I'd like to be able to talk with
more people, and if I can talk in
Spanish as well as English it great-
ly expands my ability to do that.
Yeah I can tell. You stopped
for the interview. Most people
breeze on by. Or they give me
one-word answers, which allows
me to ramble on asa representa-
tive of The Michigan Daily.
My brother actually wrote for the
Daily a couple of years ago.
Oh, what section did he write
News is better.
He wrote about football his senior
Oh in that case, everyone wants
to write about football.
Yeah he had a great thing going.
So, I'll let you get to your advis-
ing appointment. Wouldn't
want to hold you back, such
a gung-ho freshman. Adios
