Meet Lauren Zion

a senior secondary education major, from Fenton, Mich.

In summer 2009, Lauren spent a month in Mexico where she did original research on the drug wars while engaging in an intensive language study so she can pursue her dream of being a Spanish teacher.

Favorite Book

The Things They Carried (I had to read this book for class and ended up really enjoying it)

Favorite Spot on Campus to Study

The computer area on the top of the Education Building mezzanine

Biggest Academic Thrill

Writing and presenting my thesis (spring 2009):  “The Evolution of Spanish Education in America.”

Favorite Professor and Class

Oh, that’s tough; I would say it’s a tie between my freshman year Political Science Honors class taught by Dr. Erik Trump, and the English classes I have taken with Dr. (Daniel) Gates.

Number of Schools you Toured before Choosing SVSU


SVSU was my choice because:

“I was able to get a full scholarship; this has been incredible in helping me save a lot of money. Also, the campus is beautiful and the perfect size. Housing is the best I have seen from all of my campus visits to other colleges.”


Club Red Ambassadors

When prospective students come to campus for a tour, they are led by a "Club Red Ambassador."

Honors Program

The Honors Program allows talented students to pursue their major and minor degree work in a distinctive academic environment that is enriched by specially-designed Honors courses, seminars, research projects and social activities.
