Behind the syllabus: Dr. Dana Lascu

What do you do during the weekends?

Nothing too exciting. I hang out with my sons, husband (Bram) and dog (Ludwig); take long walks; and work.

What's the craziest thing you did when you were in college?

I defected.

What's one thing your students would never guess about you?

There are lots of things in that category: I can shimmy and skim coat (look those up online) - not at the same time - and I adore heavy metal (Opeth anyone?).
