Laura Schaffer '17
Anthropology and Sociology
Why I chose Union:
I grew up at a small overnight summer camp where interpersonal relationships and community were really valued. When I learned about Union (and eventually came to visit), I felt that there was not only a great community, but also an exciting energy emanating from active engagement and creativity throughout campus. Now I get to feel that every day!
Fiji Term Abroad, Civil Rights Mini-Term
“African American Protest Movements” with Professor Lawson, “Anthropology of Islam” with Professor Khan, and my independent study abroad - just to name a few.
Running (and not running) with my cross country/track teammates and reading
Favorite place on campus:
Anywhere outside on a sunny day! This summer I spent a lot of time in the gardens, on the back patio of Reamer, and outside of Lamont reading and painting.
Favorite local restaurant:
MORE Perreca’s – I share Leslie Knope’s sentiments about breakfast foods
Favorite food on campus:
Anything and everything at Ozone Café
