She most enjoyed connecting with student leaders as Chief of Staff and managing projects and initiatives for the office of the Student Body President.

Lauren is a proud member of Florida Blue Key, the 2021-2022 Reitz Scholars Cohort, and Alpha Delta Pi. Lauren’s plan for her term as Student Body President is to focus on projects that positively impact student’s daily life, promote the Core Values of the University of Florida, and foster a sense of celebration and tradition amongst the Gator Nation.
