Did You Know They Went To Marquette?

We know that each year a couple thousand students from Marquette graduate and move on with their lives to bigger things. The question is, do we ever wonder who these people are and what they've done with their lives? There are many students who graduated from Marquette and became famous that most of us may not have even heard of. The following five people came from different backgrounds and achieved different things in their lives. Makes you wonder who we will be when we graduate.

1. Tom Snyder

You know, the guy who had his own talk show called "The Late Late Show with Tom Snyder." Not only was he a very famous talk show host, but he was born in Milwaukee, too! He was born to be a Marquette student from day one!

2. Rondell Sheridan

Yes, this is not a joke! This man was born and raised in the windy city! If you do not know who this is, you are truly missing out because this is pretty much making my childhood TV shows ten times better. He is the dad from "That's So Raven" and went to Marquette! Crazy, I know. If this didn't at least make you smile, you don't know what you are missing out on!

3. Amy Madigan

You may be staring at that picture and wondering, who is that? Others may look at this picture and think, wow she looks really familiar. Amy Madigan, is most known for her appearance in the movie "Field of Dreams." She also graduated from Marquette with a degree in Philosophy, but then later on became famous for her acting and singing. Does this refresh your mind at all?

4. Chris Farley

Is this not one of the coolest discoveries you've come across?! He was super funny and always known for having a good sense of humor! He's best known for being in the movie, "Tommy Boy." Unfortunately, he passed away early in his years, but he will forever be cherished as a Golden Eagle!

5. Tab Baker

This man has been in many movies and shows, but is most known for "Save the Last Dance," "Gladiator," and "Prison Break." Although he hasn't played huge roles, he has still made a big presence. Does his name ring any bells?

What Your Hogwarts House Says About You

Get yourself sorted and find out where you belong in the world of witchcraft and wizardry.

Sorting at Hogwarts is a big deal. Being sorted into a house is essentially being placed into a family while you are away from home learning about witchcraft and wizardry. Your house is made up of the people you will live with, go to classes with, play Quidditch with and everything in between. You basically spend 24/7 with them. Your Hogwarts house is your home away from home.

When you get sorted into a house, it is based on your personality traits. The people in your house are typically like-minded people who display the same characteristics as you.

When you’re a first year at Hogwarts, the minute you set foot in the castle you are swept into the Great Hall to have the ancient Sorting Hat placed on your head. This Sorting Hat decides which “family” you’ll be spending your seven years with.

For some, it is very obvious which house they will be in, due to certain personality traits they possess. For others, they may exemplify traits that fit a multitude of houses and are uncertain where they may end up.

To find out where you belong, you can take the official "Harry Potter" Sorting Hat quiz at Pottermore.com. For all you muggles out there, these are the characteristics that the houses possess and what your house says about you:

Gryffindor: The house of the brave, loyal, courageous, adventurous, daring and chivalrous. Those who stand up for others are typically Gryffindors. Brave-hearted is the most well-known Gryffindor characteristic, and Gryffindors are also known for having a lot of nerve.

Gryffindors are people who hold a multitude of qualities alongside the ones listed, making them a very well-rounded house. People who are Gryffindors are often people who could fit nicely into another house but choose to tell the sorting hat they want Gryffindor (there's that bravery). "Do what is right" is the motto Gryffindors go by.

Being a Gryffindor means that you're probably the adventurous and courageous friend, and you are usually known for doing what is right.

Ravenclaw: The house is known for their wisdom, intelligence, creativity, cleverness and knowledge. Those who value brains over brawn can be found here. Ravenclaws often tend to be quite quirky as well. "Do what is wise" is the motto they strive to follow.

Though Ravenclaws can be know-it-alls sometimes, they most likely do know what the wisest decision is.

If you are known for being the quirky friend, the smartest in the group or just great at making wise decisions, you're definitely a Ravenclaw.

Hufflepuff: This house values hard work, dedication, fair play, patience, and loyalty. Hufflepuff’s are known for being just and true. "Do what is nice" is their motto.

Hufflepuff is known as the “nice house” and believes strongly in sparing peoples feelings and being kind. This is not to say that Hufflepuffs aren't smart or courageous. Hufflepuffs just enjoy making others happy and tend to be more patient towards people.

If you ever find that you are too nice for your own good and cannot bear to hurt someone’s feelings, congratulations, you are a Hufflepuff.

Slytherin: This is the house of the cunning, prideful, resourceful, ambitious, intelligent, and determined. Slytherin's love to be in charge and crave leadership. "Do what is necessary" is the motto of this house.

Slytherin is a fairly well-rounded house, similar to the other houses. They are loyal to those that are loyal to them just as Gryffindors are and are intelligent as Ravenclaws.

Slytherin house as a whole is not evil, despite how many dark wizards come out of this house. That is merely based on the choices of those wizards (so if your friend is a Slytherin, don’t judge, it doesn’t mean they are mean people). Slytherins do, however, have a tendency to be arrogant or prideful. This is most likely due to the fact that everyone in Slytherin is exceedingly proud to be there.

What Hogwarts house you’re in says a lot about the person you are, the traits you possess and how you may act in some situations. But in the end, your house is really just your home that is always there for you. Always.
