Neal Eller, junior in communication sciences and disorders, said the best and worst gifts he's ever received included a "jammy pack," which is a fanny pack with a Bluetooth speaker in it, and a can of "Jack Mackeral," which is canned fish that is "40 years old."
Jamie Fogel, freshman in political science, said, "The weirdest one I got when I was I don't know how old, but I received a watermelon that was covered with vaseline on the outside and was sutured back together. When I opened it up there was a small watermelon Christmas ornament in there. I use that, I still have it. I don't know if you've ever held a watermelon with vaseline on it, but it's like holding a child." (Olivia Bergmeier | Collegian Media Group)
Emily Herbers, senior in elementary education, said, "When my friend went to Italy to study abroad, she brought back different colored rocks from different beaches she had been to." (Olivia Bergmeier | Collegian Media Group)
Abby Sweeney, fifth-year senior in elementary education, said, "From my brother I received a banana costume. A full body banana costume with a stem at the top and a hole for my body. It's the best, I love it, I wear it all the time." (Olivia Bergmeier | Collegian Media Group)
Bailey Herring, senior in sociology and psychology, said, "The best gift I've received was probably a plug-in wax burner. You plug it in the wall and it's like a night light, but it has a pot where scented wax sits and the light burns the wax making your place smell nice." (Olivia Bergmeier | Collegian Media Group)
Mario Garcia, senior in human development and family science, said, "My best gift was six years ago I got a pair of Adidas shoes, that I still wear, from my dad. They were replicas of what he had when he was in high school, so that was cool. The worst thing I got was this big poofy vest that I got from my grandma that did not fit me. She thought I really wanted it so I wore it all of Christmas Eve just to make her happy." (Olivia Bergmeier | Collegian Media Group)
Emma Sullivan, sophomore in communication sciences and disorders, said her best gift was "probably just the wide variety of socks I've gotten over the years. They're fun and they're cozy." (Olivia Bergmeier | Collegian Media Group)
