Joe Johnson, '17

Education: B.A. Psychology & Theatre Arts, Lawrence University Class of 2017

Hometown: Spokane, WA -- but I live in Portland, OR now!

Favorite books: In the Lake of The Woods, Bad Feminist, Musicophilia, The Anthropocene Reviewed

Favorite TV shows: Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Schitt's Creek, Buffy, Breaking Bad, Avatar: The Last Airbender (& LOK)

Hobbies: You'll find me brewing my own kombucha and jun, biking, watching local theatre productions, hunting for playscripts at Powell's, and making puns

Favorite "Lawrence Minute" video:  This is Lawrence - Trivia 50: The Great Midwest Trivia Contest, a 50-hour-long internet scavenger hunt held in late January, is the longest-running trivia contest in the nation and one of the wackiest campus traditions anywhere. As a former Trivia Master and an annual off-campus player, I promise you're in for a treat.

When you visit Appleton, check out: The Fox Cities Performing Arts Center - national tours of Broadway productions come to Appleton each year, and you can use your LU ID to purchase student rush tickets!

Favorite Appleton restaurant: Antojitos Mexicanos, Sal's Pizza, Basil Café, SAP, The Cozzy Corner.....you'll have to try them all! (And tell me what you think!)

Three words to describe Lawrentians: Curious, Passionate, Creative

Advice to prospective Lawrentians: Challenge what (you think) you know. Push yourself outside of your comfort zone when you arrive on campus - if you're always comfortable, you're never going to grow.
