Roswell Lawrence, Jr. describes himself as a student of people. His interest in communication and problem solving serves him well as the go-to guy on the Health Sciences Campus.
What brought you to UGA?
Lawrence: I had no intention of attending the University of Georgia, and I ended up here by chance, really. One of my sisters attended Georgia Southern, and thatís where I wanted to go also. Plus, I had a scholarship to play baseball there. I applied to UGA on a whim. One of my good friends in high school was bragging about his acceptance at UGA. I applied just to show him up. I was accepted, and I gave him my acceptance letter. I donít know what he did with it, but I never got it back.
Once I got to Georgia Southern, I realized I really didnít want to play ball as much as I thought I did. When youíre having to get up at 5 in the morning every day, you realize whether or not your heartís in it, and I realized that it wasnít. I was playing baseball more for my dad than me. Having that conversation with him was one of the hardest things Iíve ever done. He stood by my decision, however, and said that if I wanted to pursue a career in business, Iíd better go to the best business school and, luckily, my acceptance at UGA was still valid.
