North by Northwestern asked face-reading expert Naomi Tickle to take a long, hard look at President Schapiro. Here’s what she found.
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.
