    “On the Spot: Jay Fielder, Operations management junior”

    How do you feel about studying abroad?

    I think it’s a good idea for people to do it, definitely looks good on a resume.

    Are you going to do it?

    No, not me personally.

    Where would you want to go if you could do it?

    Europe, definitely Germany, because I like cars a lot and I’d love to go to Stuttgart, and see the Porsche factory, they have a Porsche museum.

    So is your dream car a Porsche, specifically?

    No, my dream car would be a Danish car, it’s called a Spyker, but a Porsche would suffice, definitely.

    For sure. What kind of whip are you driving now?

    I drive a Honda Civic Si.

    OK, classic. With the holidays quickly approaching, have you started thinking about any New Year’s Eve plans? It’s never too soon for New Year’s.

    I don’t have any New Year’s plans.

    What did you do last year?

    I went to my friend’s party way out in the desert, like way up in Phoenix.

    A desert party? Like in the actual desert?

    Kind of. It was just way out there where nobody ever wants to live.

    Did you follow through with your New Year’s resolutions?

    Yeah, I did actually, just being active and stuff, which definitely paid off now.

    What do you do to stay active?

    It’s all about making it fun, I go hiking a lot. I’m getting ready for a trip to the Grand Canyon, I’m doing a rim to rim to rim to rim hike.

    Over Thanksgiving break?

    No, actually, I’m getting ready for it now, it’s over spring break with my brother because we are going to do it in one day.

    That’s awesome. Do you guys go actual rock climbing through the canyons?

    No, we do it on the trail. It’s actually a well-maintained trail, about 48 miles.

    Will you guys sleep and eat?

    No. Well, we will eat but we won’t be sleeping. We are trying to do it in less than 24 hours.

    That sounds like a (daring) plan. Is that one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2011?

    No, I am going to wait till New Year’s to start thinking about those.

    Pumped for Thanksgiving?

    Very. I’m excited to see my family and take a break from classes.
