When asked about a “Dream Date”: 

Blake said, "We would go for a candlelight dinner. Smooth jazz would be playing in the background. There'd be a boat ride in there somewhere."

Favorite MSU Memory: 

In New Maroon Camp, we were playing a game where we had a huge group of people running around the room. The MC's would call out a pair of body parts (for example: nose to knee). You had to find a partner and connect one partner's nose to the other's knee. The last pair to do so would be out. I met one of my best friends playing this game -- we went nose to knee. She was in my biology class and we connected over it.

Favorite thing about Mississippi State: 

The family atmosphere. People are so friendly and willing to help. This place really does make you feel at home.

How has New Maroon Camp impacted you? : 

It really put me in a mentally good place to start college. It built confidence and love for myself and everyone around me.
