Checking your vitals

This week the Pulse checks the vitals of Eric Wagner, a former University mascot.

Year: Senior

Major: Business and Marketing Education

Hometown: Carey, Ohio

What do you plan to do with your major? Originally I wanted to teach, but now I think I want to be an admissions counselor. At this point, it’s up in the air.

What’s your dream job? To be somewhere in Student Life here, like the assistant dean or something. I want to work in the Student Life Office here at BG.

What are you involved with on campus? I was Freddie last year. I’m the Assistant Director of Homecoming for next year. I’m with the Student Alumni Connection and I was the Alumni Relations Chair for Dance Marathon. I’m also a campus tour guide.

Why those organizations? They’re a lot of fun. They’re great ways for me to give back to the University. Oh, and school spirit and you get a lot of free clothes.

What’s your favorite organization? I’d have to say being Freddie last year, but that’s done, so I’d have to say now Homecoming. Homecoming after Freddie. Being Freddie was the best.

What’s your favorite TV show? “The Simpsons.”

Do you have any nicknames? Wagz.

How did you get that? I got that by my janitor in high school. My roommates here started calling me that and it just caught on.

What’s your favorite movie? “Wedding Crashers.”

In a movie of your life, who would play you and why? Adam Sandler. He’s funny, crazy, but he’s had serious roles too. He’s funny but serious when he needs to be and that’s how I am too.

What do you do in your free time? Hang out in the Org Suite and waste a lot of time on Facebook. I don’t really have a lot of free time, but that’s what I do when I have some.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? Hopefully employed. I would like to see myself here as a college administrator or teaching at a the high school level somewhere.
