Name: Christopher Casoli
Major: Chemical Engineering
Nationality: 100% Italian and proud!
Hometown: Montreal (West Island)
Describe your program in one word: Complex
Best way to unwind: Going to my cottage after a long week always does the trick. Just chilling by the lake in the sun surrounded by the peace and quiet of nature really helps me unwind from the stresses of school, work, etc.
Study snack of choice: Definitely tarallis (Italian cookies) if I’m at home, but candy as well; I have a huge sweet tooth.
Liquid courage: Vodka always does the trick.
Most embarrassing moment: I was on a family vacation and I somehow managed to knock over a waiter carrying a tray full of drinks. It was a very crowded restaurant and it made quite the commotion... I’m a pretty clumsy person.
Favorite place in the world: Santorini, Greece - hands down. The food, the people, the scenery... everything is amazing; I can’t wait to go back. It is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever visited (swallowing my Italian pride a bit here).
Top three pet peeves:
1 - People who have full conversations on the bus or train. You’re not in your house; you should respect the people around you and shut up.
2 - Slow walkers! I don’t mind if you’re taking a leisurely stroll, just don’t walk in the middle of the sidewalk and block the path for the rest of us.
3 - Walking into a messy house, room, or whatever it may be. It doesn’t take long to clean up and make your space presentable.
Biggest turn-off: Really bad teeth; the second I notice that in a girl, it’s over.
Biggest turn-on: Long dark hair and nice legs - gets me every time.
If you could date anyone in the world who and why: Adrianna Lima... pretty self-explanatory I think.
Describe the girls at McGill: Smart, sophisticated, and quite a few cuties (for the most part…)
Secret love affair (doesn't have to be a person): I love pasta; it is impossible for me to go an entire week without having a nice bowl of pasta.
Go-to movie and why: Zoolander! Funniest movie ever made, always makes me cry of laughter every time I watch it.
Your mantra: “It is what it is.” You can’t change the past, just need to learn from your mistakes and look forward to the future.

Hey guys! Meet this week's Campus Cutie, Vincent!
Vincent is very much involved in our usfsp community, taking part in Student Government, and contributing to activities within the student life. Learn more about him!
What made you choose USFSP as your campus?
I chose USFSP becuase it was close to my family (Godson/niece/nephew).
What do you like to do in your free time?
On my free time I play the drums and sing.
How long have you been singing/playing?
I've been playing the drums for 7 years, and singing has always been apart of my family since I was growing up.
What instruments do you play?
I play the drums, the djembe (African drum), congas, bongos, and i consider the voice an instrument.
Where do you want to go with your music?
I want to tour around the country (or internationally) and play music festivals with big name bands and eventually have a few albums with a band of my own.
Where would you want to be in 10 years?
In 10 years, I would want to be finishing grad-school and have a girlfriend who will be ready to settle down and prepare for marriage and kids. If music is the path that I ultimately go down, I would want to be signed by a major record label and be headlining an International Tour.
What clubs/organizations are you part of on campus?
I am apart of SG, as the current Supervisor of Student Government Elections.
What do you hope to see different within this campus? What would you like to remain the same?
I hope to see more language classes (I'm Italian and want to take Italian classes for my language requirement) available for this campus, and/or a music program (maybe jazz or a modern rock degree). I'd also like to see more music on campus in general. (More live shows, more people just walking around with instruments).
I would like to keep the same friendly atmosphere that this campus portrays. I feel the small campus makes people feel comfortable (almost homey.)

Hometown: Clark, New Jersey
Campus Organization(s): Phi Alpha Delta Fraternity, Club Lacrosse

Fun Fact: I'm 100% Italian but I have never been to Italy nor do I speak Italian

Biggest Turn-On: A girl that can cook
Biggest Turn-Off: Girls with large egos/Girls that think their better than other people
Celebrity Crush: Cassadee Pope
Favorite memory from Homecoming this year: Winning homecoming and storming the field with my brothers and the sisters of Sigma Kappa
Favorite Homecoming activity: Being a part of the Homecoming dance. We practiced for 3+ weeks to perform in front of a huge crowd. I was so grateful to come off the stage and have so many people come up to me and tell us how awesome we did.
Thoughts on the changes to Homecoming this year: I was not a fan of the changes of homecoming but I was happy to see that everyone was still able to have fun. The changes this year were honestly not that bad but it scares me that the school was willing to make so many radical changes without the voice of the students or even alumni. When we did share our concerns, we were given automated responses and vague emails. Eventually we were able make changes but it still compared nothing to past tailgates.
