Aviso: What gets you excited about Malone?
Davis: Lots of things, especially the people here. I love it’s such a small campus, and everywhere you walk, you know somebody. That’s one of the best things. I love being so close with faculty members. We do have a 14:1 student to faculty ratio, and I think that’s awesome. You don’t get that at Akron or OSU.
Aviso: What is your role on campus?
Davis: Basically, I do whatever the president tells me to do. I co-lead. I’m in charge of elections, and help with the blood drive. I do a lot of little things here and there.
Aviso: What has been your most influential class so far?
Davis: Probably my education classes. Last semester I took language differences. We went into the field in an English as a second language classroom. It was difficult, but I learned a lot in the field. I had students with different ethnic backgrounds, and I just thought it was amazing to be able to teach them and talk with them. It opened my eyes to a lot.
Aviso: If you could guest star on any television show, which would it be?
Davis: “Friends.” Definitely “Friends.” I’d hang out with Joey.
Aviso: What was the best pumpkin flavored food or drink you have had?
Davis: I love pumpkin flavored stuff, and I’m going to have to say pumpkin spice lattes. I know it’s the whole white girl joke, but it’s coffee, and I love coffee.
Aviso: What is your favorite family tradition?
Davis: Every other Sunday we go to my grandparents’ house, and [Grandma] cooks a pasta meal with meatballs.
Aviso: Tell me about your dream job.
Davis: I plan on going to grad school for educational administration, so it would probably be an elementary school principal.
Aviso: Imagine you get to pick the food in the cafeteria for one day. What are we eating?
Davis: Steak you can cut nicely and eat. Potatoes and green beans would be with it.
