About Lauren Jones

Ok, so now it is time for you to learn a little bit more about me!

Major: Biology

Minor: Management

High School: For high school I went to Madeira, an all girls school in McLean Virginia which is an international boarding school which also has a day student population (I did both by the end of my four years there). Most people think of an all girls school as some sort of punishment, but I loved it! I now know girls from all over the world, have worked on capitol hill, and have made amazing friends!

Family: One brother, one dog, two parents, and Ben (my boyfriend)

Favorite High School Memory: Cranium parties. These parties are my signature get together with my high school friends. I think that they morphed out of AP US study groups somehow, but I’m not 100% positive

Other Random Facts About Me:

I am slightly obsessed with turtles
I have never ever done the blogging thing before so grab some popcorn and enjoy my attempts

So you wanna be a doctor…

Trust me when I say that there are a lot of people out there who come to college thinking that they want to be doctors,

Long Time Coming

So since I am amazingly technologically adept, I managed to delete the post I wrote about the start of the school year.  Long story

Get Excited!!!

So it's been a while since I've done an update on Life After D.o.G. Street, my seminar series, but that doesn't mean I haven't
