On the Fast Track
Maintaining a close connection with her grandparents, who live in Portland, Texas, was one of the reasons Lauren Loveless chose the Island University. Loveless also received numerous scholarships and was drawn by the quality of the University’s marketing and management programs. She owes her enduring work ethic to her grandparents. It was their example that steered her determination to earn a college degree in the shortest possible time. It only took Loveless two and a half years to graduate summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in marketing in December 2009. While still a senior, she got a running start on her master’s degree, taking post-graduate classes in addition to her regular workload. Currently, she is enrolled in the University’s MBA program. Loveless, a member of the Honor Student Association, who has maintained a 4.0 grade point average, has earned several scholarships which have paid her entire tuition. Early on, she knew that she would be responsible for paying for college, so she never missed an opportunity to apply for scholarships or write an essay if it could earn her money for school. In addition to a top-notch education, Loveless has been building her resume with invaluable work experience. Recently, she was a marketing assistant for RE/Max Metro Properties where she was in charge of open houses, promotions and marketing. She also worked as an office assistant for the University’s First-Year Learning Communities Program and as an assistant for the City of Portland’s senior citizen’s center. Her future aspiration is to become a marketing manager.
