Dan Proctor in the anthropology department. My freshman year I had a class with him every term. I felt that I have learned and retained the most information from his classes. He has also demonstrated a genuine care for his students, including me, and has been extremely approachable, helpful and understanding. It also helps that his career is the closest match to my career path and expectations.
This is probably a tie between biological anthropology and forensic anthropology (surprise, surprise). Both of these classes focused on my passion, what I want to do for the rest of my life. I learned a lot about what I want to do in these classes and I was intrigued the entire term.
Mac and cheese, easily the mac and cheese.
Alexander Gymnasium/Whiting Field/Banta Bowl. I am a softball player. I keep my health in balance and find my cathartic release of stress when I am in the weight room, on the field, in the batting cage or generally staying active. I also get to support my fellow athletes when I am here. It is easily my favorite place on campus.
The aesthetic of Fall Term. The way that the campus is set up puts trees with their fading leaves surrounding you as you walk from class to class. The view wherever you are on campus is wonderful and freeing
When it’s not so nice/warm outside: Sommerset Room on the third floor of Warch Campus Center. It is a silent room that looks over the river. It is easy to focus and also provides a great view to stare into space as you come up with ideas and formulate thoughts.
When it’s beautiful outside: Main Hall green. You have nice trees to sit under but also access to soaking up the sun when you want to, depending on the work needed to get done. It’s my favorite reading spot for sure.
LU-aroo! Both years have been fun. The atmosphere of the weekend-long event is positive and welcoming. It feels so much easier to interact with everyone, even if your school hobbies and interests are vastly different. It is really cool to get to know everyone on a new level. This event allows us to do that. Plus, it is a great stress release going into hectic 10th week.
