Aneasha Lawrence works with students from California (Southern-San Diego area). Here she shares her thoughts on Austin, Texas, and applying to St. Edward's University.
What's your favorite restaurant near campus?
Hopdoddy! Excellent milkshakes, fries, and burgers — even for vegetarians! Plus being located on South Congress, there's a wide variety of other great options for food, live music, and shopping--all overlooking the beautiful Austin skyline.
What's your favorite part of an application to read?
The essay! A lot of time and effort goes into what students choose to write about and I appreciate learning more about their interests and backgrounds. I am inspired by the experiences that our prospective students have had, and I get excited for them to bring their diverse perspectives to St. Edward’s.
Describe your idea of a perfect day in Austin.
My day would begin with a bike ride to the local farmers market. After grabbing a coffee and a pastry or breakfast taco, I'd buy fresh produce for the week. The afternoon would be spent flying kites at Zilker Park or swimming in Barton Springs. After sunset, I might have dinner at one of my favorite local restaurants before going dancing at the White Horse, where they have live music every night.
