Name: Samuel Evan Lawrence
Major: Media Arts & Studies
Hometown: Lexington, Ky.
Relationship status: Single
Favorite Movie: It’s a three-way tie, in order of raunchiness: School of Rock, The Breakfast Club and Fight Club. It’s fair to say I enjoy anti-establishment things…
Favorite Song: How about another tie? “This Side” by Nickel Creek, “At the Beach” by The Avett Brothers and “Never Know” by Jack Johnson.
Favorite Food: Chicken parmesan (“chickey-chickey parm-parm”–Tom Haverford)
Cats or Dogs? Dogs, specifically blue-eyed Siberian huskies.
Ideal First Date: In order: Something interactive -ya know, a cooking class, pottery, or perhaps a bike ride. Then, a food truck, ideally of something we’re both foreign to. An hour or so of goofy dancing someplace we don’t necessarily fit in is next. Cap it off with a cliché walk on the beach, with an even more cliché half-hour of stargazing on said beach.
Favorite Female Celebrity: Whoopi Goldberg really gets me goin.’
Describe Yourself in 5 Words: Curious, childlike, kind, dorky and spacey.
Where is one place you would like to visit? Patagonia, Argentina.
What’s the most romantic thing you have done for a girl? Homemade Valentine’s Day gift. I was a young blood back then, but even the wide-eyed, less mature version of me had some charm, too.
Biggest fear: Not YOLOing life to my full capabilities.
Who is your role model? Aaron Rodgers. The guy has remarkable grace, poise and heart in everything he does -on and off the field – and also, is the most true-to-himself celebrity I’ve ever seen.
If you had one super power what would it be? Time travel. You can even limit it to my lifetime – still an easy choice.
If you found a genie and had three wishes, what would they be? 1.) A clever answer to this question. 2.) Time back from the time I spent unsuccessfully Googling for a clever answer to this question. 3.) You guessed it: more wishes.
If you were ruler of your own country, what would be the first law you introduced? A mandatory redo election or appointment process, because I think ruling any country is the most overrated job position in the world. I don’t want it.
What is one of your favorite quotes? “The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences.” – Christopher McCandless
How did you feel when I approached you about being a Campus Cutie? Blushed.
