B.E. Biomedical Engineering

“I want to give back to make sure that students now have the same positive experience that I had.”

Lauren remembers visiting Stevens for the first time with her brother, Jonathan, who was looking to attend the university. He chose to attend Rutgers, but Castle Point still hooked Lauren. “I was just in love with the campus and the view. I was interested in focusing on science and math, and I thought Stevens was the best place to do that.”

She later went from joining the sisterhood in Delta Phi Epsilon and serving as president of the Stevens chapter of the National Society of Black Engineers to her current role as a business intelligence developer with Barclays. Lauren says Stevens prepared her for a challenging job. “Stevens definitely gave me a different view on things. It taught me to always analyze a problem from different angles and to weigh the pros and cons of each possible solution, which is very important in the financial industry.”

She looks forward to enjoying membership in the EAS Society for years to come. “Stevens gave me a lot of opportunities, and I want to give back to make sure that students now have the same positive experience that I had. I want to make sure that legacy continues.”
