Why did you choose the University of Arkansas?
“I used to come here with my older brother for baseball tournaments and fell in love with Fayetteville. When I toured more colleges as I got older, I felt like nothing compared to the University of Arkansas. The programs that they offer here at the UofA provide ample opportunities for students. Specifically, I was intrigued by the Fay Jones School of Architecture and Design and the programs, curriculum, and accreditation.”
Lauren was born in Overland Park, Kansas is the daughter of Tracy and Christy Acree.
