UO Freshman profile: Emanuel Purice
High school and home town: Centennial High School, Gresham, Ore.
My academic interests include: Business, specifically around marketing.
What I like to do for fun: I'm always down to go eat somewhere new or make something at home. In order to compensate for all this eating, I like staying active. I go to the gym about 4-5 times a week and I like to go hiking and play sports with my friends. I also really enjoy traveling and I love watching "Breaking Bad."
People might be surprised to know: When I was born in the city of Timisoara, Romania, I broke the city record for fattest baby. I weighed in at over 13 pounds. You could say I've been doing it big since I was little.
I chose Oregon because: There's no place that's better. Eugene and the campus itself is a pretty awesome community that I'm proud to join. In addition, U of O was the best school that fit my academic interests.
My favorite band is: Hmm, I don't really listen to bands. I like Coldplay, but my music interests revolve more around hip hop.
iPhone or Android: Of course iPhone.
When I think of Oregon, I think of: The experiences ahead of me and all the hard work I have to commit to in order for me to be able to push myself and succeed after college.
The thing about college I'm most looking forward to is: Just doing great and succeeding. I want to accomplish all my goals and leave college moving on to bigger and better things.
The one personal item I must bring to college is: My Macbook. It's not really a personal item, but I definitely got to have a lot of food with me.
