Laurel Hogan - Delbrück Hall

Laurel is a second-year M.Ed. student in Peabody College’s Higher Education Administration program with a concentration in Student Affairs.  Originally from Park Ridge, Illinois, Laurel attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for her undergraduate studies in political science and history.  During her time at Marquette, Laurel worked closely with the Division of Student Affairs with orientation, student conduct, and residence life in a number of capacities and roles.  It was while engaged in these areas on campus that Laurel learned about pursuing a career in higher education.  She then spent a year working at a for profit educational institution in the Chicagoland area working closely with students in the United States on F1 visas studying English as a Second Language.  Laurel is excited to return to Warren College as a Graduate Fellow for a second year and ready to continue growing the legacy of Residential Colleges at Vanderbilt University.  In her spare time, Laurel loves to travel and explore new places, write letters to loved ones, and will drink lots and lots of tea.
