(VOLUNTEER & COMMUNITY SERVICE CENTER)

What do you love most about Lawrence?

The diversity of our students, and their passion for the community.

Why might a student come to see you?

If they have an interest in volunteering or connecting more with the Appleton community. Students should visit me this week to sign up to go “Into the Streets” and serve at a non-profit organization of their choice this Saturday, Sept. 10 from 1-5 p.m. This is a great opportunity to get to know other students, learn about the Appleton community and to help someone in need. Additional information can be found at the Warch info desk or online at www.lawrence.edu/dept/student_dean/volunteer.

What is one piece of advice you would offer an incoming student?

Take advantage of your opportunities at Lawrence, but don’t feel like you have to do it all. Concentrate on the meaningful aspects of your college experience.

Favorite song?

“Yesterday,” The Beatles

TERRY GOTTFRIED

(FRESHMAN STUDIES)

What do you love most about Lawrence?

Working with bright, excited undergrads and fantastic colleagues.

Why might a student come to see you?

For difficulty understanding class material, for paper writing for Freshman Studies, for questions about grad school or post-LU opportunities in a variety of areas, such as speech or music therapy.

What is one piece of advice you would give an incoming student?

Actually, I have three pieces of advice. We’re on your side; it never hurts to ask; give it a try.

How do you like your eggs?

Over easy. I think it’s difficult to prepare eggs over easy well, so when I go out to a restaurant I like to order something I can’t easily make at home.

JULIE HAURYKIEWICZ

(CENTER FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING)

What do you love most about Lawrence?

I really appreciate the closeness of the LU community. We are a small enough campus that many students, faculty, and staff know each other well and collaborate on projects both in and outside the classroom; LU benefits from a strong community spirit that arises out of these interactions.

Why might a student come to see you?

A student might see me for several reasons: to request a tutor, to talk about academic skills — time management, test anxiety, critical reading, etc. — or to discuss a plan for academic success. I also teach Freshman Studies and public speaking, so students taking those courses can often be found in my office. Last but not least, I welcome any student to stop by just to say “hi” and get to know more about the CTL; you just might find a very friendly dog — my “furry child,” Murphy — in my office to greet you!

What is one piece of advice you would give an incoming student?

Get a planner — whether it’s on paper, in a mobile electronic device or online — and learn to use it. This means finding a system that you like, customizing it to fit your needs and using it multiple times a day. It’s easy to let time slip away if you don’t keep track of it.

If you could be anywhere tomorrow without any obligations, where would you visit?

I love to travel and experience new cultures, so I would be thrilled to go somewhere I’ve never been and explore that place. On the other hand, I am a “homebody,” and I could be happy just hanging out with my dog in our backyard.
