Marty Erickson! Not only is he a musician of the highest caliber, he also cares deeply about the well-being of Lawrence students, especially in the Conservatory.
I would have to say Introduction to Film Studies. There’s something uniquely gratifying about learning how cinema came to exist, learning basic techniques, and then applying them to create an original work.
SLUG Hill. No contest. There is no other single place on campus where you can take a nap, practice an instrument, do an intense aerobic workout, watch the river, and climb trees (this is pretty much a list of my favorite activities).
I love when during early spring the snow melts and collects in huge puddles on the main lawn. The color palette of dark green, dark grey, and white is really appealing.
It’s hard to say. There are so many little moments that I really cherish, like the first time I saw pelicans fly over campus. If I had to pick a big moment, it would probably be when we played Lincolnshire Posy in Wind Ensemble this year.
