10 Questions with Homecoming Emcee Elias Warren
I got the chance to better know a Penn State Homecoming Emcee when I badgered Elias Warren with semi-important questions. Thanks to my backbreaking labor, you’ll feel like you’re best pals with one of the students getting you pumped during Homecoming.
Without further adieu, this is the one and only Onward State brand of interview.
1. What do you like to do besides Emceeing?
When I’m not emceeing, I enjoy watching The Office, hanging out with friends, watching movies, and hitting the gym. I also enjoy singing and performing theatrically. Of course, I LOVE Penn State football…it’s a near religious experience every time!
2. Favorite place on campus?
Beaver Stadium! Penn State would not be the same without it! It’s the central unification for the entire university and the height of our spirit.
3. Lady Gaga or Ke$ha?
Lady Gaga…society would be quite different without “Bad Romance.”
4. What are you looking forward to most while emceeing?
I really look forward to exciting the crowd! I love interacting between Heidi [Kolster] and the audience. The emcee-audience relationship is a tight one and it’s very exciting to be a part of something as big as PSU Homecoming! I love interacting with Heidi…I could not possibly as for a better co-emcee!
5. Favorite Creamery ice cream flavor?
Ohh tough one. I If I have to choose, I would say Coffee Break; it’s a nice spark to the day!
6. Who’d win in a fight between Joe Paterno and Graham Spanier?
Joe Paterno…there’s no way he’ll let anyone take him down. He’s a legend for a reason!
7. What made you want to be an Emcee?
I’m a big people person, and I’ve always loved performing. So naturally, emceeing is the perfect job! I’ve been performing since I was in 5th grade, so it’s not new for me!
8. Team Edward or Team Jacob?
NEITHER. Team Harry all the way! Neither Edward nor Jacob wouldn’t last two seconds against a Basilisk, let alone Voldemort!
9. If you had a time machine, which historical figure would you hang with?
I hate to be generic, but I would definitely hang with George Washington. It took a lot of guts to stand up to the British Empire like that. He was such an honorable man with extraordinary vision. He was in politics for the right reasons–to serve his country and not for personal gain…we need more people like him!
10. If you could be a dinosaur, what kind would you be and why?
A crocodile. Why? Do you see any brontosauruses or T-Rexes walking around? I didn’t think so!
