Welcome... I'm your LCC, Lauren Dahlstrom!
I am so excited to meet you the fall. I will be a resource for you as you navigate through your first year of college here at Minnesota State University, Mankato! Being involved with the Upper Level Education Learning Community will help you academically as well as socially, so utilize me and your peers as much as you can!

How/what made you decide this major? I have always enjoyed working with children and working in different environments with children thoughout my life has made me want to become a teacher myself.

Advice for LC Students: Never be afraid to ask questions and do things outside of your comfort zone. Put yourself out there and make new friends within your LC and your program cohort!
Smartest thing you ever did/best decision you ever made: Listening to the feedback from my teachers on assignments, it actually helps even though you may want to brush it off and do it your way instead.
