As part of The Thing, J.A. Rock and I will be posting little character intros for Mark Cooper versus America. Say hello to Deacon!
Student Snapshot - by Simon d’Angelo, Sophomore Staff Reporter.
This week’s Student Snapshot is Deacon Holt. Deacon is a Junior. He’s studying Engineering, is a member of Phi Sigma, and, for the over 21’s, also works at O’Malley’s Bar downtown.
Sd’A: Any advice for this year’s Freshmen on how to succeed at Prescott?
DH: It’s a good school. Study hard, don’t blow off your classes, and ask for help if you need it. You’ll do fine. Also, the best time to do laundry is when everyone else is eating.
Sd’A: Sounds like you’ve got it all figured out.
DH: Well, the laundry thing took a while. Look, it takes some time to get a handle on college life. It can be tricky to find the balance between studying, and working, and partying when you’re new.
Sd’A: What about some advice to any Freshman considering rushing?
DH: Pick your fraternity carefully.
Sd’A: Are you referring to the famous rivalry between the Phi Sigs and the Alpha Delts?
DH: Not at all. I’m just saying that before you decide to pledge to a fraternity, you should make sure that you’re a good fit. Some fraternities have a focus on academic achievement. Some have a focus on community service. And some have a focus on...on other things.
Sd’A: Point taken. Thanks for your time, Deacon.
