Lauren Atkins is a University Innovation Fellow candidate currently studying at Villanova University.
She is a sophomore and is majoring in Mechanical Engineering and double minoring in Engineering Entrepreneurship and Mechatronics. She found a love for robotics and integrated medical systems through her studies so far and hopes to pursue a career with those highly incorporated.
Lauren transferred from University of Maryland mid-year her freshman year, and has since excelled at Villanova. She tries to stay as involved as possible, if not through activities with her sorority, then playing intramural sports or just finding time to relax. Going from a huge school to a decently small school has given her some perspective on how differently schools are run and changes that need to be made. She hopes through UIF she can help bring as many opportunities to Villanova's campus as possible. She is ecstatic about taking the trip to the west coast as she's never been, and can't wait to meet everyone there!
