Brenna Curley ’25

If you had to create a synonym for the word “Smithie,” what would it be?
I think a good synonym for a Smithie is: "a kind-hearted, creative person who is always challenging the norm in whatever subject they feel passionate about." 

What area of campus are you most excited to explore?
I’m really excited to explore my house, and of course Neilson Library as well. I’m also looking forward to spending a lot of time in the botanic garden; I’ve seen it before but have never explored it in-depth. 

What’s a question that you wish more people would ask about you?
"What’s your favorite TV show?" I know it sounds mundane, but I don't really get to talk to a lot of people about the shows I'm currently watching (it's “Naruto,” by the way!).

What three things would you like to accomplish this year?
I want to meet a lot of cool Smithies, which I’ve already started to do. I want to explore academic fields that are outside of my comfort zone, and I want to take advantage of being so close to a pretty town! I really want to check out Northampton and go adventuring there with whoever else wants to come. 

If you could be in the Guinness book of world records, what record-breaking feat would you attempt?
I’d love to attempt the record for most candy eaten in a day. I feel like I could definitely do it! 

Would you rather travel back in time to meet your ancestors or would you rather go to the future to meet your descendants?
I’d want to travel into the future to meet my descendants and to see how the world looks!

If you could only listen to one album for the rest of your life, what would it be?
“Because of the Times” by Kings of Leon.
