Superheroes on campus

One thing that a college student understands more than anyone else is the amount of stress that academics create. It’s completely normal to wish we could be a kid again. Being a child had its perks — food was made for you, clothes were bought, no committments, no 8 a.m. chemistry lectures. The absolute best part about being a kid was using your imagination.

As Marquette students, we still use our creativity, just in a different ways. We imagine a perfect GPA, a full night’s sleep, a home cooked meal or even winning the lottery. Nevertheless, a college student’s imagination is a unique one. That is why we asked students around campus if they could have one superpower what would it be?

Many students chose to fly and read minds, while others preferred to time travel. Kristen Stanis, a sophomore in the College of Health Sciences, would fly to class. Griffin Wright, a freshman in the College of Health Sciences, would fly to Florida.

Super powers offer a unique way of recreating a way of life. The beauty of an imagination allows a 21st century college student to walk around ancient Rome. For just a moment, we can forget about our current lives as humans and add a fascinating twist.

A majority of students would use their super power for academic gain. Grace Corriero, a sophomore in the College of Arts & Sciences, would choose the ability to read minds.

“(I would read) my professors’ (minds) so I could know what’s on the exams,” Corriero said.

Ana Corona, a freshman in the College of Arts & Sciences, chose the super power of healing.

“Being able to help people would be really cool,” Corona said.
