This week, The Purple and White met with Rebecca Falls, a sophomore from Greenwood, Mississippi. She is an accounting major who loves to play soccer.
The Purple and White: What made you come to Millsaps?
Rebecca Falls: Academics, and my dad and my grandmother went here. They had a really good accounting program, so I knew I wanted to come. Soccer was a plus, but it wasn’t the main factor.
P&W: What’s your favorite part of campus?
RF: The Bowl, but I feel like that’s everyone’s, though. I think that’s the best-selling feature of Millsaps.
P&W: What’s your favorite memory on campus?
RF: I’m so bad at this. I would say my favorite memory on campus… I guess my Bid Day freshman year (Falls is a member of Kappa Delta Sorority). It was a great day.
P&W: What organizations are you involved in on campus?
RF: Kappa Delta, CS (community service) Chair, and I’m on the council on the circle of sisterhood. I still help out with the soccer team, I’m just not a player, and I’m a student worker for the track coach.
P&W: What’s your favorite book?
RF: Oh, that’s a hard one. The Outlander; I love that. I’m reading that series right now.
P&W: If you won the lottery, what would you do with the earnings?
RF: I would travel around the world for sure, and then I would help my parents pay off any loans or anything. Then I’d make a really big donation to prevent child abuse in America.
P&W: Is there something popular now that annoys you?
RF: Annoys me… What do you mean? Like a modern society thing?
P&W: Yeah, just anything.
RF: Hmm… Oh, that stupid “how bout dat” or whatever, that girl. It makes me so mad that you can say that and do things like that and become popular. I hate that so much.
P&W: What was your favorite thing to do as a child?
RF: I loved to swing.
P&W: Same. Okay, tell me about your most embarrassing moment.
RF:One time I created an animal. It was like a rhinoceros… I put a dinosaur and rhinoceros together and said “rhinosaur” and all my friends made fun of me. We were talking about what could go up against an 18-wheeler and I said, “Oh a ‘rhinosaur,’” and everyone made fun of me from that point on. I tried to reason and say I had a bigger imagination than they did, but they just didn’t accept it.
P&W: Oh my goodness. Well, last question, what three words best describe you?
RF: Heart, determined, and a goober.
