Lauren Reder

Religion, Philosophy, & Classics
Recognition Year: 

Lauren Reder arrived at Wright State in 2015 with four years of Latin already under her belt, a full academic scholarship in hand, and an avowed intention of majoring in classics. With her boundless energy and keen intellect, she soon took the department by storm, quickly proving to be one of the best linguists ever to grace our halls, a fine scholar of Latin literature in general and a sensitive translator of Latin poetry in particular, as exemplified by her honors thesis on Vergil’s Georgics. Lauren graduates a member of four academic honor societies. A model of academic excellence, she has also been the heart of the Classics Department for her fellow students, many of whom she tutored directly, or befriended in her role as president of the Classics Club and of Eta Sigma Phi and whom she inspired with her infectious enthusiasm and her buoyant optimism, work ethic. After spending the past two summers interning at the University of Cincinnati’s John Miller Burnam Classics library, Lauren plans to put her knowledge of classical languages to good use by pursuing a degree in library science.
