One of this week’s featured seniors is… Lauren Bailey!
Lauren “LB” Bailey became a member of SAA during her freshman year, joining the community service committee and also attending the D1 Conference hosted here at Northeastern. As a sophomore, she co-chaired Bringing Cheer and attended D1 Conference at UMass Amherst. That summer, she was invited to travel to Kansas City, MO for the CASE ASAP National Convention and presented about our recruitment and retention programs.
Lauren served on the executive board as Secretary during her middler and junior years. She attended two more D1 Conferences – at the University of Connecticut where she presented on community service and also at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Additionally, she was able to attend her second CASE ASAP National Convention in Nashville, TN – and was awarded with a District 1 scholarship.
Lauren leaves a lasting mark on the SAA through her contributions to the buddy program. She helped create the Buddy Passport and the Buddy Scavenger Hunt using ideas she got from CASE ASAP Conferences. Her impeccable organization and inspiring leadership will be missed by all. Thank you, Lauren!

When you were five, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be an elementary school teacher or a ballet dancer.
N*sync or Backstreet Boys?
Describe your perfect day in Boston.
A visit to the North End in the summer or a nice shopping trip along Newbury Street in the spring.
How has SAA contributed to your Northeastern experience?
SAA has contributed a lot to my Northeastern experience. I have met so many great people and have been able to do many amazing things. From Fall Retreat to Ski Trip to District & National Conferences to meeting Andy Sandberg and Russell Brand, I would not have been able to do any of this without SAA. Can we make a graduate SAA? Please?!
How do you hope to give back to the Northeastern community as an alumna?
Well, I would love to initially give back by being a panelist for 5U25 CSSH. Then, when I am really rich (maybe) someday I would love to give back monetarily to my alma mater.
