People were filtering in and out of the Study’s lobby, but all eyes were on Rebecca Delman SY ’16.
Becca loves dogs, football and dark chocolate, her favorite Instagram filter is “Mayfair,” but behind those hazel eyes is a stern, serious lady.
“I like a guy with good manners,” she told me, “and I like when guys are always honest about their feelings.” After that, I was on my best behavior. You can’t get anything by this gal.
Perhaps it’s the English tradition that gives her that no-nonsense attitude: born in Great Britain, Becca moved to Manhasset, Long Island, when she was just a wee lass.
But don’t get the wrong idea, because Becca does, on occasion, let her hair down. She’s a sucker for the Bachelor and Bachelorette, and she can be quite the jokester: “In elementary school, whenever we had a substitute teacher I put on a fake accent and we all pretended I was British.” What a rascal!
Oh, and she likes giving her Dad a hard time, too. He’s a die-hard Giants fan, but Becca’s favorite team is the Jets. “This is our year. I’ve got a feeling.”
At Yale, Rebecca works for YTV, and is in a sorority. Admittedly, she’s “not a sorority girl,” but she likes that Theta is “low key and fun.”
She’s also on the Public Relations and Marketing Committee for Camp Kesem, an organization that runs camps to support the loved-ones and family members of those with cancer.
Seems like Becca’s got it all figured out, but does she? Pretty much, yes, but don’t be discouraged, because she currently has no man in her life. I can’t imagine that will be true for much longer.
Look for Becca around campus and say hello! She’s very friendly. Oh, and she normally wears glasses, but don’t be fooled if you see her without them, as she’s contemplating the switch to contacts.
