Aviso: Why do you love Malone?
Maier: As cliché as it sounds, I love the community. I love how when you walk across campus people smile and say hi and guys hold the door for you. People just feel welcomed. It’s loving.
Aviso: What do you do as Student Body President?
Maier: Student Senate as a whole acts as a liaison between the faculty/administration and the students. We communicate back and forth. Personally, I preside over all the meetings. I get to act as a representative of Malone and the student body. I get to go to the board meetings and collegium.
Aviso: What are you most looking forward to about senior year?
Maier: Student teaching and getting ready to meet my kids. I’ll be in North Canton with third and sixth grade. I’m excited for that.
Aviso: If you could give one piece of advice to students, what would it be?
Maier: Don’t take school to seriously. I did that my first year or two, and I didn’t take time to have fun.
Aviso: If you could live in any time period, when would it be?
Maier: The 1950s. I love the poodle skirts. I love the dresses. I love the idea of going to a soda fountain and sitting on the barstools. I love the music. I just love the atmosphere.
Aviso: What’s your pump-up song?
Maier: Kesha is my guily pleasure. She gets it. Kesha sings about a life I will never live, so it’s fun to live vicariously through her.
Aviso: What’s one of the biggest lessons you have learned while at Malone?
Maier: I’ve learned that I don’t have to do it all. I am not strong, but God is strong.
Aviso: Tell me about your dream day to yourself.
Maier: I would sleep in a little bit and drink two cups of coffee just chilling in my room with music. Then I would go to Target. Then I would go for a nice run. I love running. In the evening I would either read or watch TV.
