Hey all! My name is Lauren Stuart and I absolutely love science. In my free time I like to volunteer at The Pregnancy Aid Center as a medical assistant, bake with friends or visit my family. On campus I’m involved in Terps Against Hunger, Green Terps, Catholic Terps, and I am VP of Alpha Lambda Delta Honor society. Also, I enjoy ceramics, painting and drawing. If you see me around, please feel free to say hi!!
