Meet Chris Laylan, one of our trusted Parent & Guest Program Interns! As you start to to register for #UWSOAR, take a moment to read about Chris–and all our other wonderful interns–and don’t forget to tweet us any questions you might have about your #UWSOAR experience!
Where are you from?
I’m from Tomah, WI – that’s cranberry country!
What was your SOAR experience like?
My SOAR experience was really exciting, mostly because I was able to be on my own and get pumped about living on campus. I hadn’t really traveled by myself before, and I didn’t know very much about the UW-Madison campus and resources before coming to SOAR, so it was a bit of a culture shock – but a useful one. I learned a lot.
What is your favorite thing about working for SOAR?
The energetic and happy atmosphere of the work environment. People are here because they love what they do, and it’s contagious. It makes me want to be here, and it motivates me to work hard to provide the best possible hospitality and experience for our parents and guests.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
A physician. I want to make peoples’ lives better.
What is your least favorite movie, and why?
Tough question. I guess I’m not quite sure, but I do know my favorites are The Fugitive and Gladiator. I’m old school.
