Cougar Questions: If you could learn one random skill, what would it be?


College is a time for learning new skills, both inside and outside of the classroom. No matter how hard classes get, students should make time to learn new skills. Students around campus shared the one skill they would like to learn if they had the time.

“To surf. I think that would be really cool.” — Peter Woodward, senior, physiology and developmental biology, Phoenix

“Fly fishing because it’s random and not that many people talk about fly fishing. I think that’d be cool, if that was my thing.”  — Lauren Meese, senior, family studies, Phoenix

“It would be surfing. It’d be fun to learn and it’s a new skill. It’s kind of hard to do out here, but it would be unique.” — Matt Jones, freshman, neuroscience, Flint, Mich.

“I’d like to learn how to ski. I’ve never skied. My father’s from California and I grew up in Hawaii, so I’m a scuba diver.” — Zach Largey, English writing instructor, Provo

“Scuba diving. That would be cool.” — Melia Spear, freshman, nursing, Cedar Hills
