    NBN News: What one story would you most want to see on NBN during your presidency?

    MS: Nobel Prize winner from the Northwestern faculty.

    NBN Features: Sum up your life in six words.

    MS: Four words, that’s not my whole life, but “He loves his students.”

    NBN Life & Style: What’s the craziest thing you did as an undergrad at Hofstra?

    MS: I don’t remember. [laughs] That’s pretty telling, isn’t it?

    NBN Entertainment: Who would play you in your biopic?

    MS: I don’t know, Richard Dreyfuss or something…He’s a great actor, much cooler and better looking than I am. It’s not going to be Richard Gere.

    NBN Sports: What is the one thing you hope to change about NU athletics?

    MS: I want men’s basketball to go to the NCAA tournament.

    NBN Politics: What do you think about the Amethyst Initiative [a movement by colleges to lower the drinking age to 18]?

    MS: We all know prohibition doesn’t work, but…if you look at the data and see how many more people would be predicted to die in alcohol-related vehicular accidents if they lowered the drinking age from 21 to 18, I don’t think it’s worth it. So I do not plan to support it, but I do think our campuses would be safer if we had an 18-year-old drinking age.
