Betsy Ladyzhets and Brent Morden do a lot of things together: organize an honor band, co-sign emails, have a dinner meeting in the Diana without actually eating dinner because Brent is going to Ferris later. So, we thought it would make sense to also post their personals together, in the first post of our annual series. If you are interested in a Valentine’s date (or any other kind of date, really) with either of them, email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set you up.
Name, Year, School, Major: Betsy Ladyzhets, 2019, Barnard, Biology & English
Preference: Girl for girl.
Hometown: White People and Trees, Connecticut.
Your nightmare date in seven words or fewer: Skinny dipping at Cornell.
What redeems you as a human being? When I reorganized my books over winter break, I discovered that, on two completely independent occasions, I acquired two completely independent copies of The Puritan Dilemma, a biography of John Winthrop. If that doesn’t mean I’m predestined for salvation, I don’t know what does.
Library room of choice: Altschul Atrium.
Beverage of choice: Peppermint vodka.
Which dating apps have you been active on? Tinder, AO3, the rush lines of Broadway musicals.
Where can you usually be found on a Saturday night? At a basketball game, staring wistfully at the cheerleaders, dance team, Camille Zimmerman, etc. when I’m supposed to be playing clarinet.
Historical Hottie: Jeanne Baret
Name/Year/School/Major: Brent Morden, CC ’19, Music.
Preference: Man for woman.
Hometown: The beautiful land of Queens, NY.
Nightmare date (7 words or fewer): Sunday Ferris brunch. Arrive. It’s closed :( #ferrisforever
What redeems you as a human being?: Great question. I have the uncanny ability to make anyone smile. If that’s not enough, perhaps my own smile will do.
Library room of choice: Gabe M. Wiener Music and Arts Library, Dodge Hall. All of it.
Beverage of choice: They say you are what you drink. That’s why I’ll always go for a hot, soothing Earl Grey tea ;)
Which dating apps have you been active on?: None, unless you count the great dating app that is life itself.
Where can you usually be found on a Saturday night?: In the company of friends, music, food, or all of the above. Sleeping, too, eventually. (Gotta get that 8 hours, am I right Alice! Health Promotion?)
Historical Hottie: Hildegard of Bingen. Talented, influential, saintly… wowza!
