LAUREN PIKE has felt right at home at Mizzou, where she graduated in 2019 with a BA in English and minor in Journalism. She comes to the Missouri School of Journalism as an academic advisor in spring 2021 from MU’s Writing Center. It was there that she discovered her passion for building students’ skills and confidence in the complex (and often dreaded) writing process. During her MU undergrad days, Lauren worked as an A&S researcher, interned with the State Historical Society, and wrote a single award-winning story about ugly produce for the Missourian. She spends her remaining hours reading poetry, practicing yoga, exploring Columbia’s hiking trails, and enjoying local restaurants.
