I graduated from the University of Detroit Mercy with my B.A. in History and Women's Studies. After graduation I realized my passion was working with students and became the Graduate Resident Director for the First Year Experience Residence Hall at UDM. After a short time I became the Interim Resident Director. I began at LTU as the Residence Hall Coordinator for North Housing in hopes of getting students involved. My goal while working at Lawrence Tech is to help every student get the most out of their college experience.

Laura Wiedenfeld

I am originally from Wisconsin, and completed my Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point in music and arts management. I worked as a Resident Assistant throughout my undergrad and quickly realized that I enjoyed working in housing and wanted to continue on in the field. From there, I moved to Cedar Falls, Iowa, where I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with my M.A.E. in Postsecondary Education: Student Affairs. Throughout my studies, I have developed a passion for working with and supporting first year students. I will be the Residence Hall Coordinator in Reuss Hall and am looking forward to this year!
