Each week we will have an interview with a new cutie on the prowl! This week she’s smart, she’s funny, she’s classy, she’s Shannon Smith!

Nickname: ShanShan

Class Year: 2014

Major/Minor: Psychology major, English minor
In light of summer leaving us, what song captures how you spent yours?

            Avril Lavigne’s “Here’s to Never Growing Up”

What kind of bathing suit do you prefer your man wears?

Board shorts… something about white man thighs freak me out

What about the thought of having more first-year boys gets you going?

            I finally get to be like Stacy’s Mom. Ultimate senior cougar status.

What’s the greatest part about having your own off campus house in relation to your dating life?

            It will teach me how to be domestic (ie: cleaning, paying bills, laundry, sandwich making).

Simply…is LD’s a real date?

            Absolutely. Where else would it be acceptable to wear cocktail attire and get a meal for under $10? Talk about classy.

Psychologists say that when meeting someone for the first time, you only have about 7 seconds to make a powerful first impression. What is the first thing you notice?

            His eyes.

What makes a man worthy of dating you?

A man who can make me laugh and keep me on my toes.

This summer I accidentally…

Put 10,000 miles on my new car. I have the ultimate fomo being away from gburg friends

Why are you Gettysburg Great?

I am able to live by this quote…

“Life is All About How you Handle Plan B

Plan A is always my first choice.

You know, the one where

Everything works out to be

Happily ever-after.

But more often than not,

I find myself dealing with

The upside-down, inside-out version —

Where nothing goes as it should.

It’s at this point that the real

Test of my character comes in..

Do I sink, or do I swim?

Do I wallow in self pity and play the victim,

Or simply shift gears

And make the best of the situation?

The choice is all mine…

Life is all about how you handle Plan B.”
