STILLWATER - With the 2012 cross country postseason underway, we sat down with some of the newcomers on the team to get an idea of who they are and how they chose Oklahoma State. Today's Q&A is with Mason, Ohio native, Monica Lake.

What is your favorite thing about OSU? Why?
"I really like the campus because it's different from home. It's really pretty year round."

What sports do you like to watch in your spare time?
"College football and college basketball."
Who are your favorite team(s)?
"The Cleveland Browns and the Oklahoma City Thunder."
Who is your favorite Olympian? Why?

"When people walk really slow."
What is your guilty pleasure?
Who is the most played artist on your iPod?
What is your favorite TV show? Why?
