Every week, The Thrill features a member of a student-support organization to bring awareness about the various resources available to the student body on campus. This week, we’re featuring Nate Winer, ’19. Stay safe this week, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help.
If you want to speak to a PC, they have Office Hours in the new Health and Counseling Center. Drop by and talk to a PC every Sunday-Thursday, 7-9 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays 5:30-7:30 p.m. Or call their 24/7 hotline at 740-398-3806.
Where are you from?
Deerfield, Illinois. It’s a very alright town; if you like deer you’re in luck, if you like more than one mall, you’re out of luck.
Cats, Dogs, or Lizards?
Dogs all the way, but if a big dog brought me a small lizard, like, on its head or something? That’d be tight.
What was the last thing that made you want to scream?
Two days ago someone just, like, reached down onto my plate at dinner and squeezed my potatoes? With his bare hand? It was a lot.
What’s your favorite place to nap on campus?
I found my new favorite just a few days ago, actually: in the shadow of the statue outside Gund Gallery. She protects you. She protects us all.
Beethoven, Beyonce, or The Beatles?
Beethoven. I don’t have any jokes for this one, actually.
What’s your Holy Grail Pierce hack?
Believe it or not, one of the sustain-a-mugs actually is the Holy Grail. So, y’know, try to snag that one, if you can.
What made you want to become a PC?
In all seriousness, I wanted to become a PC because I didn’t have the most stellar of freshman years, and though things did eventually turn around with the help of some new, good friends, I know I could have really benefited from making use of the PCs. I wanted to join to try and help people the way that my friends helped me, and to try and give back to a school that has given me so much already.
Thanks so much to Nate for chatting with us for this piece, and check out the Peer Counselors page here!
