Every week, The Thrill features a member of a student-support organization to bring awareness about the various resources available to the student body on campus. This week, we’re featuring Carrie Gotwals ’18 from Needham, MA. Stay safe this weekend, and know that there is always someone you can talk to if you need help.
If you want to speak to a PC, they have Office Hours in the new Health and Counseling Center. Drop by and talk to a PC every Sunday-Thursday, 7-9 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays 5:30-7:30 p.m. Or call their 24/7 hotline at 740-398-3806.
Cookie pie or giant cookie?
Cookie pie, no question. Combines the two best deserts in this world.
What’s the best meal you’ve ever had?
My uncle’s a lobsterman and when I visit him in Maine in the summer we eat his fresh catch. Nothing’s better.
What’s the last good book you read?
I read A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson every summer vacation. It’s my favorite book.
Why do you love your hometown?
There’s this really good bagel store. Also, my dog lives there.
What’s your favorite place to nap on campus?
My bed. Back Bay gets some real nice napping light around 2 in the afternoon.
What movie have you watched most frequently?
Hercules. Only had to swallow a little pride to answer that question honestly.
Why did you become a PC?
As a PC, I can offer support or be a resource to anyone on this campus who needs some advice or help. We are a small community in a rural place, and it can really be isolating out here at times. I believe that it is important for us to look out for each other on this campus, and just generally promote well-being. As cheesy as it may sound, there is nothing more rewarding for me than helping make someone’s day a little better.
