Your favorite...

So far, my favorite professor at Lawrence has been my cello professor, Ms. Anthony. She has had years of experience and amazing credentials within the cello community which allows her to provide useful resources and advice. During lessons, I always find myself enjoying the time I have with her as she has much to offer as a teacher.

My favorite class has been aural skills because it has allowed my skill as a musician grow in terms of listening carefully to chord progressions or harmonic dictations.

At Andrew Commons, I always look forward to the days where there are sweet potato fries for lunch. It’s never during dinner and only certain days that the commons provides them.

There is a little ledge right outside of Memorial Hall between the Wellness Center that I like to sit on because the view is incredible. You are able to see the trees, river and SLUG garden right when you sit down.

One thing I love about the campus is the amount of activities that take place. There is always something to do, whether it be a movie or concert; I find myself always exploring what our campus has to offer.

My favorite study spot would have to be Somerset, which is an enormous hall with big open windows that allow for a quiet and serene place to study.

My favorite LU memory would have to be LU-aroo. There are so many performances that happen during this weekend event, which makes for a great time with friends and a place to listen to good music.

What are you studying? Why are you studying this?
I am currently in the double degree program that Lawrence offers, where I am able to study both biochemistry and cello performance.

Outside of being a student at Lawrence what do you like to do? Hobbies?
One hobby that I have outside of Lawrence is running. I don’t necessarily enjoy running on a treadmill in a gym so I find myself always around Appleton which is one way to explore the city.

How have you benefited from donors while you are at LU?
Donors affect Lawrence tremendously and I think walking around campus, it is evident that they benefit every student here. Some have donated buildings and technology while others have donated research spaces for science students. I always find myself connected to donors since I am studying in the science department and I am receiving financial aid. Money that donors have given to Lawrence helps support scholarships that many students receive. Here at Lawrence, I am on a scholarship which is one of the ways I am able to attend this school. I think without donors, I would not have been able to spend one of the best years at a great school like Lawrence.

What does being a Lawrentian mean to you?
Being a Lawrentian describes who a student is as they attend Lawrence. They are students that participate in class and help make the campus and even part of Appleton a better place. I know that after my time at Lawrence is over, I will think of myself as a Lawrentian forever because this university is a place that has challenged and shaped who I will become. I consider myself a Lawrentian even now because I not only am attending Lawrence University, but I am proud to be a student here.

What are your plans for after Lawrence?
After Lawrence, I hope to attend graduate school and later medical school. I have taken a liking to the medical field which is something I want to pursue in my future.

What clubs are you involved in at Lawrence?
Although it is not considered a club, I participate in the intermural sports that are offered. I started off with volleyball and now play every Thursday with a team in the intermural volleyball league.

How do you juggle being a dual degree student?
Although being a part of the double-degree is very demanding, I find it appealing. I enjoy being able to practice in the conservatory and, study in Steitz Hall. Instead of my classes being mainly music or science classes, I get a mix to help expand what I am learning.
