By: Katy Hoeper – Staff Writer

FN: How did you ladies meet?

Maggie Ising: Katherine introduced me to everyone.

Ashley Fecher: Annie offered me a job when she was drunk.

Annie Grizzell: Ashley is now my supervisor…

Katie Christoff: Annie, Kath and I have been in Phi Beta Chi, the communication fraternity, together since freshman year.

AG: I met Maggie the day we moved in.

Katherine Braunscheidel: Ashley and I really bonded when we went for a “run” together, but really walked the whole way and sprinted down the end of the street to impress our friends.


FN: Care to share your most embarrassing moment at UD?

AG: Maggie kicked someone at Tim’s last night.

AF: I think the most embarrassing thing for me is that the bouncers at Milano’s and Tim’s don’t check my ID anymore.

MI: I think Daytona was definitely some of my most embarrassing moments.

KB: I screamed down Brown Street one night “I HATE BOYFRIENDS!”

KC: All I have to say is, “What rhymes with hug me?”

AG: Freshman year I was wearing a sailor costume for Halloween, and I fell down a hill.


FN: If you knew you could stay at a certain age forever, what would it be, and why?

KB: I feel like 28 or 30 is a good age. Like in “13 Going on 30.” Thirty, flirty and thriving…

KC: Retirement.

AG: But you’d be old and wrinkly.

AF: Yeah, you’ll have saggy boobs…

AG: I’d want to be five, because I was still cute and had no responsibilities.

AF: I had the most fun in my life when I was 17.

KC: Ashley peaked in high school.

MI: I’d say 16 too! High school was awesome.

AG: I hate you guys.


FN: Give everyone in your house a superlative.

AG: Kath would give herself Best Hair.

KB: Maggie is Most Likely to Order Papa Johns.

MI: On my dad’s AmEx.

AG: Actually, we’re not most likely to do anything. We’re all wildcards.


FN: If you guys were to be visiting for your 10-year reunion, what would everyone be up to?

MI: Katherine’s going to be super successful, and if she has children she’s going to be a stay-at-home mom and still be awesome at her job and do it all.

AF: Annie will be in Spain.

AG: Hopefully, I’ll be married to Paco.

MI: Katie will be like Carrie from “Sex and the City,” writing her articles with Miranda and Charlotte and Samantha as her friends.

AF: No, Katie will be living in Katherine’s basement.

KC: Maggie will be a brand ambassador for Papa Johns.

AG: Ashley will still be babysitting “her lady.”

KC: Ashley will be one of Leo’s (our landlord) people.


FN: Do you have any house traditions?

KC and AF: (Singing) Mimosa Saturday! Mimosa Saturday!

AG: Quesadillas.

AF: Kim K’s Hollywood game.

AG: We’re addicted. I’ve played that at Milano’s before.

AF: I’ve been broken up with like six times on that game.

KB: Please make sure to note that I don’t play that game.


FN: If your house came with a warning label, what would it be?

ALL: Flammable.

KB: Our house is made entirely of wood…

KC: It’s The Log Cabin.

AF: Beware: stray cats.

MI: Beware: stray people.


FN: What advice do you guys want to give the underclassmen?

AF: If you tell your dreams before breakfast, they come true.

KB: Do special interest housing.

AG: Unless you’d like to live next to Grandpa Mick.

KB: And the hospital.

AG: Build as many houses as you can (at Tim’s).

AF: Enjoy your time here! It goes by too quickly.

AG: Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.

KC: Write for Flyer News. Or, at least read Flyer News.


FN: Describe the perfect New Year’s Eve.

AG: There’s no such thing.

AF: Singing karaoke with Troy Bolton. Like in “High School Musical.”

KC: Like I said, Ashley peaked in high school.

MI: Making out with Ashton Kutcher at midnight.

KB: Going to New York City! I’ve never been before.

KC: My family goes to New York City every year for New Year’s. That’s the best place to be.


FN: What’s your favorite spot at UD?

AF: I don’t know because we live on Frank Street.

KC: Irving Commons pool!

AF: Yes!

MI: The laundry room at VWK.

AG: The Galley.

KB: I like Starbucks on Brown Street.

KC: Yeah, Kath and I are there every day.

ALL: And of course, Tim’s.
