Meet an SMA: Lauren Bittrich ’16
Cookie pie or giant cookie? Both! What kind of question is this?
What’s the last good book you read? Selected Stories from Alice Munro’s work, her 2012 publication. She’s this little old Canadian woman who just casually won the Nobel Literature Prize this past year. If you ever want to give yourself a headache go look at her revision process for her short work — pretty phenomenal. She’s great.
What is your favorite place to nap on campus? KAC couches for sure.
What movie have you watched most frequently and why? I’m a huge Beatles fan, so when Across the Universe came out I had to have watched it at least a dozen times in one week. Beatlemania is still alive, people!
Why did you become an SMA? College campuses are really dangerous places sometimes, and even the safest people can become targets for abuse. I wanted to be a Sexual Misconduct Advisor because I knew too many people who feel like for some reason they ‘deserved it’ by being drunk, flirtatious, or not forceful enough with their intentions, and as a result feel like the feelings they may be experiencing are somehow not valid. That is not true – Sexual Misconduct Advisors will never force you to press charges or release the name of your attacker, we’re available to listen and help you sort through your incident. You’re not alone!
