A few Spartan questions for Eric Flores:

Q: What was your major at MSU and what year did you graduate?
A: In 2004, I downright earned a degree in Journalism from the MSU College of Communication Arts and Sciences.

Q: What are you doing now for work?
A: I’m an attorney in the States of New York and New Jersey.

Q: Where do you live?
A: I actually just moved from the Upper East Side to the Upper East Side; apparently it’s a little bigger than I thought.

Q: Favorite NYC restaurant?
A. Choosing one of the numerous, outstanding restaurants the City has to offer is simply impossible, but if you ask me where I want to go eat right now I’d say S’Mac. It’s located on 12th between !st and 2nd and only serves macaroni and cheese. Boom.

Q: What is best part of living in the NY area?
A: The best part about living in NYC is knowing that you’re a small piece of history. I live in a pre-war building that has been located at that spot for nearly 100 years. To think of all the different kinds of culture that have lived within those walls is amazing.  In NYC, you walk where history has walked, and you live what people only dream of. Question is, how will you leave your mark on history?

Q: What is best part of being a Spartan in New York?
A: The best part of being a Spartan anywhere is that you’re awesome. Spartans wear their pride on their shoulders.  Plus we have some pretty sweet bars.

Q: If you could invite 3 people from any time who were associated with Michigan State to dinner who would they be?
A: In a world where anything is possible, I would invite John C. Holmes, James Caan, and Sam Raimi to dinner. Holmes was the founder of the Agricultural College of the State of Michigan, which ultimately went on to become Michigan State University; Holmes Hall is named after him. James Caan needs no introduction as he played a part in one of the greatest movies of all time, The Godfather. Finally, Sam Raimi directed the Evil Dead series. I’d like to give him props for putting a MSU shirt on Bruce Campbell.
