Bachelor of the Week: Ben Greene ’14

Melissa Canu ’13, Life & Style Columnist

Are you looking for a dashing Dickinsonian to swap chocolates with this Valentine’s Day? If so, then keep your eyes out for Benjamin Greene ’14. Preferring to be called “Ben” or “Benny,” this week’s bachelor finds it “annoying” when people call him by his full name, “Ben Greene,” a title that he gets on a regular basis. An International Business and Management major on campus, this twenty-year old is a native of Connecticut. His favorite class thus far at Dickinson has been “English 101: Thinking Like a Poet” with Professor Su. If you have been working on a sweet love poem in preparation for Valentine’s Day, consider dedicating your verses to Ben.

On campus, Ben is the Interfraternity Council Rush Chair in addition to being members of the Club Soccer team and the Kappa Sigma fraternity. He is also the VP of Securities Analysis for the Student Investment Group and is a Student Supervisor in the Cafeteria. Ben enjoys lazing on Britton Plaza during warm days, but acknowledges that the frequency of rain in Carlisle often forces him to sit in The Underground to read the newspaper. When Ben is not engaged in one of his numerous activities on campus, he can most likely be found doing yoga, tai chi, or watching “The Notebook.” If you are a bachelorette who also enjoys seeking tranquility amidst the bustle of a chaotic day on campus, be sure to take a meditation break with Ben.

After graduation, Ben plans on becoming a scuba diving instructor in Tahiti. This curious Red Devil hears that “Siberia is pretty chill,” and would love the opportunity to head there for a long weekend. From his travels, Ben reported that “Danjeh Coffee in Mashhad, Iran serves quite a nice cup,” and also commented that he wish he could speak Egyptian, as he thinks that “Cleopatra would have been an interesting conversation companion.” If you have been in search of an adventurous companion to travel with during Spring Break, this week’s bachelor just might be the man you’ve been looking for.

When asked about his dream girl, this composed Dickinsonian responded, “All I want is someone who can keep up.” The best date he has ever been on was with a girl that he met in court. So if you are a feisty bachelorette looking to spice up your life and live on the edge this semester, keep your eyes out for this crazy Red Devil around campus, because he just might be your dream man.
