Ben Murray

Hometown: Algonquin, IL

Major: Broadcast Journalism

Favorite Place to Study: At night or during the weekends U92, the campus radio station, is actually a great place to study. I usually grab a studio back there and play music while I study.

Hobbies/ Interests: Sports. Huge sports fan primarily baseball and basketball. I’m also trying to take up golfing in my old age but we’ll see how that goes.

Favorite Book: Beyond Belief: Finding the Strength to Come Back by Josh Hamilton 

Favorite Band/ song: I enjoy EDM so I like any of those DJs but my favorite song would be The Chainsmokers remix to “Dreaming” by Smallpools

Favorite movie: Sports movie I would say Remember the Titans. I can quote pretty much the whole thing. Non sports movie would be Star Wars the original trilogy.

Favorite place to hang out on and off campus: On campus during the day I also like to hang out at the radio station because there will always be a good mix of different people to talk to and hang out with. Off campus blue hole is always a great option if the weather is nice out. 

Favorite WVU Tradition: Without a doubt it’s singing “Country Roads” after a home win. I despise country music but that song is the only one I like. Singing it with 60,000+ fans in Milan Puskar Stadium is indescribable.
