Freshman enjoys thoughtful movies
James Hale: How do you spend your weekends?
Robert Lusignan: I just hang out with friends, go see movies, go out with my girlfriend. I’m in a pretty long relationship with my girlfriend.
Hale: How long have you two been dating?
Lusignan: Six years, so we spend a lot of time together. The majority of my time is with her, but I try to split it up evenly between friends and girlfriend so I don’t get jealousy in there.
Hale: What movies do you like to watch?
Lusignan: I like movies that make me think, not just movies that give my eyes something to look at, you know. Action movies are cool if I’m just in a really non-thinking mood. I like movies like Shawshank Redemption or Equilibrium. I like a lot of Christian Bale and Edward Norton films.’
Hale: Are you living on campus?
Lusignan: I did the first year. I stayed in Moody Towers, and it wasn’t really the dorm experience I didn’t like. I just didn’t like the idea of a completely random roommate. I liked living on campus and being able to be anywhere in five minutes instead of fighting traffic for an hour.
Hale: It takes you an hour to get to school now?
Lusignan: It can. Twenty minutes if there’s no traffic but up to an hour if there is.
Hale: Have you had any good professors so far?
Lusignan: I like my sociology professor just because I guess I like the idea of talking about society and the way it works, and people.
Hale: Are you planning on opening your own business when you graduate?
Lusignan: No, I had a friend who was going for management information systems. It’s sort of computers in the business world, except you’re more on an office-wide scale, like managing an entire software application and making sure everyone can use it correctly.
