    “On the Spot: Mark Tarnofsky, Campus Candy owner”

    You are basically the Willy Wonka of college students, how does that feel?

    It makes me feel good when I see people smile every time they walk in to the store. That is the number one thing we look to do. Whether you broke up with your boyfriend, everyone that leaves here has a smile on their face, best thing.

    Which candy represents you? I’m thinking the big jawbreakers.

    No, because you know what’s in the inside. With me, you just don’t know. I would say the “”claw-hopper”” because it looks completely different than it actually is; it’s just the mystery of it. They are so good they will get you pregnant. It’s true, they are so damn good.

    What was the craziest night of your life?

    The problem is I just don’t remember it. That’s how crazy it probably was. I was a partier like everyone else was back in the day, had a great time; it was just a fun time. I don’t think this school could have handled me, or any university.

    What is something you want to do in the next few years you have not already done?

    Skydiving, definitely need to do that.

    What is your advice to college students that you see every day?

    Don’t get married. No, I’m joking, but have fun. These are the best four years of your life. You’ll never have this time again in your life. Not a worry in the world, not a care in the world. Have the time of your life, enjoy it.
