Gumaro Valencia, a Political Science major from Yakima, Wash., is a man of few words. Yet his actions on campus have created some great memories.
Some of these memories include “borrowing” bikes for midnight rides with his roommates. “But don’t worry,” he said. “We returned them better than how we found them.” His craziest memory, however, is the classic Northwestern tradition of naked butt-sliding.
Although he’s had fun at college, there have been challenges. Valencia described the most difficult part of adjusting to college life as, “getting used to one-ply toilet paper.”
If Valencia could become like a current NW professor, Valencia would choose to be Prof. Jeff VanDerWerff, associate professor of political science. “He gives good guidance,” said Valencia. “He looks past you as a student and cares about you as a person.”
Valencia describes himself as being like the new landscaping boulders on campus. “I’m hard to move and really random.”
