The minute hand nears the halfway mark as I rush from lunch hosting, heading towards the Landis Peabody Building. Time seems to slow down just enough as I step into the warm office building. I walk to my office and let my laptop boot up, settling in for another day as an Alumni Development Intern. Taking out my trusty Moleskine notebook, I take note of my tasks for today – design materials for the Andrew Commons donors, fliers for Lawrence alumni reunions, creative work for fund-raising – and promptly open up Photoshop. Coffee fetching and filing have yet to be on my list, though I wouldn’t really mind. The familiar program brightens up the screen in front of me and I open up a blank document, soon to be a reunion flyer. After a few hours, emails are sent, and I cross off “reunion flyer” with satisfaction. Next, a new file is brought up. This time, I’m working on designing a cookbook as a thank-you gift to the donors of Andrew Commons. As a student who often eats there, the gratitude is definitely personal. Because I am involved in professional design work during my internship, I am now considering design freelancing in the future. Perhaps one of the most striking impressions, though, has come from the human connection I have gained through my internship. While I do mean networking with staff, the bigger gain is my connection to past Lawrentians. As I scan pictures from decades past, I notice that while the faces may seem slightly different and, in some cases, not even in color, they are also similar to the faces I see today. The pictures depict people doing the same things that we do here at Lawrence, and in the same places. This campus is a united one, which is something I have learned through my internship. I am happy to be a part of a team that vows to bring “More Light” to current and future Lawrentians to come.
