How did your Lawrence experience prepare you for your current profession?: Lawrence prepared me to be an excellent communicator. It prepared me to relate well to people from all backgrounds with varied interests. It prepared me to become a life-long learner.
What is one piece of advice for prospective students about their time at Lawrence that is important for their lives after Lawrence?: Study abroad. In addition to preparing you for the unexpected (which is what happens all the time professionally), it’s not likely that you’ll find yourself in a job that you can leave for months at time to travel to new places.
