Lauren Stutler envisions herself some day traveling the world as a business management consultant. And her time at Valparaiso University is preparing her to make that dream a reality.

Lauren currently studies international business, business management, and Spanish. And she is involved with several campus activities, has studied abroad, and is on pace to graduate in four years.

“It sounds like a lot, but I’ve really just pushed myself to succeed,” Lauren says. “I’ve really decided what I’m good at and what I can use in my real-life experiences after college. I’ve learned how to manage my time, and how to expand my goals.”

Whether it’s exploring your faith through daily Morning Prayer at the Chapel of the Resurrection, taking part in fraternity and sorority life or one of several honor societies, or studying abroad, like Lauren, you’ll have countless opportunities to get involved at Valpo.

“I didn’t really know myself until I studied abroad and had that experience,” Lauren says. “I was put in this totally different environment, away from my family, away from my friends, away from my culture. I just learned so much about myself.”
