Q&A: Matthew Willis

As part of Student Life’s ongoing Q&A series, we sat down with SGA Chief of Staff Matthew Willis to discover his deepest, darkest secrets. The results of our investigation were shocking.

Where are you from and what is your favorite part about being from there?

I’m from St. Louis. Really, I can’t say what my favorite part about the city is. I like Atlanta a lot more than St. Louis, if that tells you anything. If I have to give something, it would have to be the St. Louis Cardinals.

What’s your favorite bathroom on campus?

Without a doubt my favorite bathroom on campus is in the Modern Languages building. They are small, always scented and if you listen closely, you can refine your Mandarin skills with the class next door. Why not kill two birds with one stone.

Who would you bring with you on an island for the rest of your life and why?

The rest of my life? I would most likely bring my dog.

Would you rather eat worms for the rest of your life or drink wheat grass? why?

I’m not really a fan of dry foods. So I guess I’m going with worms.

Best book you’ve ever read? Why?

As I answer these questions in my Literature of Imperial Russia class, I’m going to have to go with A Hero of Our Time by Mikhail Lermontov. It sounds interesting, right?

What profession do you want to be more than anything else? Why?

Hands down, Dean of Campus Life. It would be harder for people to judge me for walking down frat row in my 40’s.

What’s your favorite shade of green? Why?

Asparagus green – it has recently become my favorite color now that asparagus seems to be the only vegetable our chef, Sid, can make that tastes good. Shout out to Crayola for making it an official color in 1993. Much respect.
