Get IN Chicago is pleased to add another intern to our team this spring: Lauren Morrissey, a Gannon Scholar from Loyola University! Lauren joins two other current interns: Rachel Phan, also a Gannon Scholar from Loyola University, and Tiffany Ward from John Marshall Law School.  Lauren, Rachel, and Tiffany will assist with projects including grant compliance, communications, and research reports.  Generous funding from the Baum Family Fund supports all three interns.

Lauren Morrissey - Loyola University

Hometown: San Mateo, California
Majors: Political Science and Sociolegal Studies

Most interesting thing I've learned so far at Get IN Chicago:  Cognitive Behavioral Therapy plays just as much of a role in reducing youth violence as education does! It is interesting to see how much mental health factors play a role in this issue.

Best way to spend a Saturday in Chicago: In my opinion, going to the Art Institute is the best way to spend a Saturday.

Favorite Chicago Food: Cheesie's Mac Grilled Cheese - it's two typical college student food options combined.

Post School Goals and Plans: To work on the Hill or get a Masters in Public Policy (MPP)
