University of Iowa News Release


Nov. 11, 2008

Bothell, Wash. native honored by University Housing

Natalie Chadwick, a University of Iowa junior from Bothell, Wash. received the 2008 George L. Droll Award for her contributions to improve the quality of life for students living in UI Residence Halls.

She received the award at a presentation ceremony on Friday, Nov. 7, in the George Droll Lounge in Currier Hall. Along with a certificate, Chadwick received a $1,000 credit on her university bill to be used toward room and board in the residence halls.

A resident of Stanley Hall, Chadwick is a junior psychology and pre-nursing major whose career goal is to become a nurse practitioner in pediatrics or geriatrics. Her parents are George Chadwick and Joni Chadwick.

Chadwick said she likes living in Stanley because of its easy access to campus, the fitness center, the computer lab, dining, and proximity to downtown Iowa City. "After having lived in residential housing for three years, it is easy to see how the staff and students encourage interaction and work to create a welcoming living environment," she said.

The Droll Award is presented annually to the student in a UI residence hall who models good citizenship and helps to build community among hall residents. Nominations are accepted from resident students and Residence Hall staff. The Droll Award honors the man who joined UI's Department of Residence Services in 1960 and served as its director from 1980 to his death in 1995.
