Collins Lopez, senior Political Science/ Pre-Law major, talks about comic books, cemeteries, and studying abroad.
Q: What is an interesting fact about you?
A: I like comic books. Superman is the greatest of all time. He is a hero you can always look up to, even in his darkest times.
Q: Have you been to Comic-Con?
A: I was planning on going to the one in San Diego, but I couldn’t. This month I’ll be going to the North Carolina one with some friends. It’s my first time, so I won’t be dressing up, though.
Q: Why did you choose to major in Political Science/ Pre-Law?
A: I think politics are interesting and necessary. The study of politics really flows into everything. I also love the law. I can apply it to different situations, like from Comm Law I can apply everything I learn to shows like How to Get Away With Murder and Law and Order, which is really interesting.
Q: What do you want to do after graduation?
A: I’m hoping to go to Campbell’s Law School. They have a dual program with NC State that I want to do so I can get a masters in Political Science. I also want to travel. I want to see Europe. I was going to study abroad, but the timing didn’t work out. I’m definitely looking into doing that in Law School. I also love cemeteries, and there are so many in Europe, like High Gate cemetery in London. The history is just so amazing.
Q: What do you do around campus?
A: I am one of the founding fathers of Kappa Sigma. When I came to Campbell, I knew there wasn’t any Greek life and I wanted to change that for the brotherhood that is involved. It was a great opportunity and I am happy to have so many brothers in our chapter.
Q: What is your favorite color?
A: Gray, which is weird because there are no gray areas in law.
