Just a reminder that these are real quotes from the real Archana Ahlawat.
Department Of: Fuck, marry, kill: Norm from the Barn, the bull at Shooters, the Robert E. Lee statue?
Archana Ahlawat: Definitely kill the Robert E. Lee statue. What were the first two?
DO: Norm from the barn and the bull from Shooters.
AA: Ooh, Okay. Uh, fuck Norm. and then marry the bull. Honestly, I really enjoy the bull.
DO: What’s your least favorite Duke memory?
AA: Ooh, um, hm, I think – oh, okay. Definitely pulling an all-nighter in The Edge. This has happened multiple times doing compsci. Like this one compsci project, I just sat in The Edge until 1 am and I didn’t even finish. And then I had to walk back to Edens.
DO: And you used to be the Duke Conversations president?

DO: On a scale of 1-10 how much do you hate The Chronicle?
AA: I haven’t had my interview with them yet. With their edit board. Um, you know honestly, I enjoy The Chronicle. I like their opinion – okay well, not recently. Some of their opinion pieces have been rough.
DO: Do you want to name any?

DO: An eight? For hate?
AA: Oh, hate? Oh, no no. Two.
DO: Favorite ASMR roleplay?
AA: Ooh, I have no idea. I – what does ASMR stand for? Is this the thing where you make the sounds?
