Can you tell us an interesting fact about you that people would be surprised to know? I am a very outgoing person who likes to be loud and active.

What do you find the most difficult aspect of being a college student compared to a high-school student? What I find most difficult is the difference in class sizes. At KSU, I have some classes with over 50 people. 

What do you like most about KSU? I obviously love the commons, because I love food. I also like that it isn’t a huge school, but also not a tiny school. For example, it doesn’t take long for me to walk from my dorm to my class or one class to another. Also, the professors and people I have met have been amazing.

If you’re not in classes, what are you doing? Tell us some of your favorite hobbies/activities. I am usually in my room doing work or playing PS4. I also go play basketball, go eat at the commons or the student center with my friends.

If you could pick any place in the world to travel to, where would that be and why?  If I had to pick any place to travel to it would be South Africa, because my dad is from there. He lived there for 11 years, and it would be cool to see where he grew up.

You are a brother of AEPi, so what has been your favorite aspect of being in a Jewish fraternity? My favorite aspect is that I have people that support me. I can trust them and they can trust me. Another thing I love is that I’m with people that I have something in common with: being Jewish. I also can now say I have “brothers”, because I only have an older sister as a sibling.

You are involved with Chabad on campus. What was your first impression of the organization? To be honest, I was worried. I never went to Chabad in Atlanta. When I walked in and met Rabbi, I was pleasantly surprised. The environment was nothing like I expected! It was so chill. I also wasn’t expecting a big Jewish population at KSU, but I was wrong. Seeing so many Jews in one house made me more comfortable. In fact, I usually go every Friday night to Shabbat dinner. Also, this semester I am doing a program called Sinai Scholars, which has been so much fun. 

If you could change or upgrade anything about KSU, what would it be and why? If I had to change or upgrade one thing at Kennesaw, it would be more restaurants on campus. I know there are a lot of restaurants around campus, but it would be easier if they were on campus so students don’t have to waste gas.

Why would you encourage other Jewish students to get involved with Chabad? If you're Jewish and don’t come to Chabad events, you shouldn’t be shy and just come to them! They are so much fun and you meet so many great people. Rabbi is one of the nicest, coolest guys I have ever met. It is a great time to be with people that are like you. I love going to Chabad events.

What is your favorite Jewish food? My favorite Jewish food would probably be Matzah ball soup or Kugel. Most people would say falafel, but I can’t stand falafel.
