Q&A With Corso posted Feb. 9, 2009

CalBears.com: What would you like to be doing in ten years?
Meghan Corso:
"In 10 years I want to be living in Greenwich Village in New York City with a bulldog named Lola. I want to be working as the art director for NYLON magazine or own The Black Bear, which is a restaurant in Pottersville, N.Y. When I think of upstate new York, I think of my families lake house on Schroon lake and the black bear. It's the icon of Pottersville and one of my favorite places."

CalBears.com: Which three people would you invite to dinner?
MC:
"I would invite Marc Jacobs, Gregory Corso and, of course Annie Leibovitz. Since it would be my dinner party, I would have to have a musical guest and it would be either Daft Punk or George Harrison. Corso is my third removed cousin one of the original members of the Beat Generation."

CalBears.com: What are your personal goals for this season?
MC:
"I want my game to get better everyday and for my team to win."

CalBears.com: Who is the loudest player on your team?
MC:
"Camille Hewko."

CalBears.com: Where is your favorite place to relax?
MC:
"The Fairfax flea Market in Hollywood or Zuma Beach in Malibu, Calif. I love the beach near the lifeguard tower number seven or `free Zuma' by the cliff."

CalBears.com: Who has been your favorite professor at Cal?
MC:
"Tom Goldstein, from whom I took a journalism class."

CalBears.com: What is your most prized possession?
MC:
"My Polaroid collection. My favorite one is one that was taken at the Daft Punk concert. I'm with three of my closest friends and whenever I look at I get a big smile on my face! Another one is of my family and I, and we're sitting in front of a cow. I'm five and my sister has some amazing crimped bangs. It's really priceless."

CalBears.com: In the last women's water polo Q&A, Stephanie Peckham wanted the next women's water polo student-athlete to answer, if you could pick one place in the world to travel to, where would it be?
MC:
"In the seventh grade, my best friend's mom gave me an old black and white picture of Broome Beach in Australia. Ever since then, it has been a dream of mine to vacation there."

CalBears.com: What question would you want the next women's water polo athlete to answer?
MC:
"If you could be any animal what would you be and why?"
