Eric is an Accounting major that is minoring in History. He grew up on a farm and has a very large family, all brothers. He met Sarah recently in class, and the two often study together. At first he felt like she was the sister he never had. Of course, working to meet deadlines together leads to late night meal runs, all-nighters and a lot of sleep-deprived conversation.
In the back of his mind, he thinks it's going to be a real breakthrough in getting closer, if Sarah asks him to accompany her on one of her nerdy self-invented field trips.
