About Lauren

Hey what's up! My name is Lauren and I am from Lyons, Colorado. I am going into my senior year here at UNC. I am majoring in Software Engineering with a minor in Criminal Justice. I also have another job on campus in the Office of Information Management & Technology where I am a cyber security student. I get the opportunity to do lots of cyber security work for the university which is cool because I really want to go into cyber security when I graduate. I also studied abroad in Ireland my junior year which was the coolest thing I've ever done, hands down. 10/10 would recommend! 

3 Fun Facts:

 1. I lived through a flood in 2013.

 2. I have an avocado plant that I grew from seed.

 3. I taught myself how to ride a unicycle!

Favorite Place on Campus:

Kepner Hall! It is home to the Monfort College of Business and you can catch me studying there til the wee hours of the morning. 

Advice to Prospective Students:

Get out of your residence hall! During the first week of school is when the University puts on all sorts of events to get students involved and don't be afraid to go to all of them! It's a great place to meet people and make new friends. My other piece of advice is to go to class. I know its easy to sleep through or skip class but you pay around $30 for every class and you don't want to waste that money!
