Joe Weidner got the nickname ‘Popcorn Joe’ after he was asked to make popcorn during his first day in Student Life. But ‘Popcorn Joe’ does not enjoy eating popcorn.

“The first day I was here Angelo was ‘like hey do you want to pop popcorn?’ and I said sure. Every day since I’ve been the one popping popcorn,” Joe said. “I like popping popcorn. I go to class smelling like it, but I don’t eat popcorn.”

Joe is in his first year at Moraine Valley after attending Shepard. His goal is to become an accountant and intends to transfer to DePaul.
