Eric Barrese (‘19) is double majoring in history and geography.

Scarlet: Let’s start with some basics, where are you from?

Eric: I’m from Attleboro, Mass. It’s about an hour away.

Scarlet: Are you involved in any sports or activities at Clark?

Eric: I do Student Council and SPLASH.

Scarlet: Tell me a little about SPLASH?

Eric: SPLASH is a Clark event that other schools do too, and kids from all over Worcester can come to learn from a student teacher.

Scarlet: Can you teach anything you want?

Eric You can teach anything you want. This year, I taught about tigers. You can know very little about it too, but as long as you know more than a kid, you’re all good.

Scarlet: What’s your favorite thing about Clark? Where’s your favorite place to be?

Eric: My favorite thing about Clark is probably the people, but I wish that the system itself was a little more liberal; I feel like there’s a separation between the student body and the administration. My favorite place on campus is probably my room. I love the people, but I also love my room.

Scarlet: What are you interested in doing with your major?

Eric: I’m doing history because I really like the idea of getting into the political arena, but I could also get into education, so it gives me more choices. I’m doing geography because I really like science and I could go into NASA or do Geographic Information Science (GIS), so I have a different array of skills.

Scarlet: Do you have any shoutouts?

Eric: Well, I love my mom, so shoutout to my mom.

Thanks for the interview, Eric!
