Matt is a busy guy. Hillel, Next Act, Dance Troupe, and i3 are all organizations in which he is actively and prominently involved. What better way to enjoy himself in these groups than by having all his closest friends join them too? Even if almost everyone ultimately refuses to join, Matt lives for the pursuit of membership, the thrill of the chase. Especially because on some occasions, against all reason, it works.
He tries on a regular basis to convince his nearest and dearest that their lives would be greatly improved if only they joined [extracurricular of choice]. Not Jewish? That’s okay, there’s free Shabbat dinner for guests every once and a while. Do you show any hint of musical talent and live within twenty miles of 500 Memorial Drive? Do Next Act! We might even do High School Musical, or Sweet Charity! How can you refuse when one of them is about a hooker?? As for Dance Troupe, anyone can dance, and you only lose one entire week of your life to dancing, drama, and hairspray. It’s TOTALLY worth it, you have to join. Know how to hold a camera? How about you document your dorm’s life? Or you can star in the video! It’s the opportunity of a lifetime! Good luck avoiding his brilliantly crafted guilt traps, or denying that smouldering pout.
He loves trying new things, too, but never alone. Matt knows that there’s strength in numbers, so he wants a multitude there auditioning with him for the newest show on campus, or eating at a fancy restaurant. Matt likes force people out of their comfort zones, but most people just like watching him try.
