Lucy: What are you studying at CBU?
Michelle: I am a Political Science Major, Certification in Public Administration with a concentration in Local Government. What a mouthful!
L: Your perfect day would be spent…?
M: My perfect day would be most definitely spent in Cape Breton. It would be a hot day at Kennington Cove, with friends and a good book. It would end with a lobster dinner and a bonfire with my closest friends.
L: What’s the number one thing students new to CB should experience?
M: The Skyline Trail, words cannot justify its beauty; such a sacred place on this island!
L: What’s your 2012 summer song?
M: That is a tough one. Lately, I have been listening to Jack White’s newest album (I’m a big fan of his cover of Love is Blindness). Every summer I listen to Ordinary Day by Great Big Sea and Sunburn by Gordie Sampson. (Editor’s Note: I also love Sunburn by Gordie Sampson!)
L: Favourite spot on the island…?
M: Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site. I am absolutely in love that place!
L: Last book you read…?
L: You’re entering your last year at CBU, what advice can you offer new students?
M: Appreciate the value of having a one on one relationship with your professors. They are an absolute wealth of information; you can learn so much from them!
L: What’s something we don’t know about you?
M: I am a classical music junkie (I have an embarrassingly comprehensive knowledge of film scores).
L: What’s your summer uniform?
M: A dress is a must. Favourably, a colourful sundress with a cute shoe!
L: What can students look forward to for the 2012-2013 year?
M: I don’t want to give away too much, but I can say we at the Union are looking into some new, local initiatives!
