Sara Cappiello: What is your favorite part about D-Days? Why?
Allyson Osterloo: My favorite part is the football game and tailgate because it’s just a really fun atmosphere and I get to hang out with friends.
SC: What is the best part about fall?
AO: I get to finally wear sweatshirts and not die of a heat stroke. And the leaves are falling so it’s super pretty.
SC: What do you think is the most challenging part of this year, with midterms coming up?
AO: I’m really bad at procrastinating but I’ve been trying to study more. I’m trying to be a little organized and prepare for the tests coming up, I’ve had five in the past two weeks.
SC: How do you deal with stress?
AO: I drink a lot of coffee. Last week I had three large coffees within about half a day, which is not very healthy.
SC: With last year being your first D-Days, what is different about this year?
AO: This year, I know more about what stuff is going on compared to being a little, lost freshman. I remembered to get a football ticket this year. Last year, I forgot and I had to go to a soccer game to get my ticket.
SC: What are your goals for the semester?
AO: I want to try to become more organized and be better prepared for my classes. I’m also going to try not to forget when my tests are. My classes are a lot harder.
SC: What new activities have you tried this year?
AO: I started an intramural volleyball team. We’ve lost every game but it’s really fun. I get to play with my friends and relive the glory days.
