Lauren Hatch, '12

  • B.A., Letters, Arts, and Sciences
  • Ivyside Pride
  • Education Abroad, France

"The Letters, Arts, and Sciences degree satisfied all of my interests – English, philosophy, women’s studies, and history. I didn’t have to settle for just one! I got a well-rounded perspective and am prepared for graduate school. My professors did more than teach me what I needed to know to pass the class. They helped give me insight into who I am and about the world I live in."
