The group lunch on my first day was nice and I am looking forward to making more memorable experiences here.

My friend and I went to a party as Wayne and Garth from Wayne’s World (I was Garth). It was definitely not expected.
Stick shift or automatic?
Who is the most famous person you have ever met?
I was an extra in the Iron Man 2 movie and although I didn’t formally meet them, I was on set with Robert Downey Jr. and Jon Favreau. Also, Russell Brand and Jonah Hill were promoting “Get Him to the Greek” on the HUB lawn while I was at Penn State. I didn’t wait in line to meet them but saw them close up.
Do you have any hidden talents that people you meet would not expect?
Given that I’m not a very good cook, I make a really good grilled cheese sandwich.

I don’t think I’m known for anything yet. Maybe for being the 3rd Megan in the group.
If you were stranded on an island, what are three things you couldn’t live without?
Considering I enjoy watching survival shows on TV I would say a fire starter, a cooking pot, and a machete. Besides those, I would want my fiancé, chocolate, and Pandora radio.

There is a very positive atmosphere. Also, there seems to be a lot of teamwork and company bonding both in and out of the office.
