A Message from your ASB Vice President 

Hello, I'm Lauren! I am a senior graphic design major. Here are the basics about me: I love to draw and paint, travel, surf, go to concerts, and be around people. I love getting to know friends and hearing epic stories. My middle name is Charles after my great grandpa. Also, my favorite color is orange and my favorite food is ribs.


I grew up in the city of Villa Park, CA, just inland from Newport and 15 minutes from Disneyland. My dad would pile all my siblings in his surf van and we would paddle out at Blackies or Bolsa Chica, where he would give us a quarter for every wave we caught. One of the best things about PLNU for me has been being able to surf much more and getting involved with Surf Club has been a huge blessing throughout my college experience. Also, I have always loved to draw, but coming into Freshman year here I would collage or paint on cardboard with friends on the Hendricks lawn and then from there I got back into creating a lot more art. The community at PLNU has been the biggest blessing; friends around me who model how to love like Jesus get me so stoked on the Lord and excited to pour back into this community.


Doing Senate my freshman year prepared me to run for Vice President and I am so honored to work alongside a humble, epic group of leaders: the Board of Directors!
