The saying “it takes a village” is so relevant in the higher education world. It definitely takes both faculty and staff to help the students grow and become ready for life after graduation.

Lauren Meyers is originally from Plano, TX. At an early age, her parents instilled in her the mindset that she could achieve anything she put her mind to no matter how hard it may be. Lauren came to A&M-Commerce as a Freshman PSA (Program for System Admission) student. The PSA program is for students to complete their first year at an A&M System school and meet all program criteria to be accepted into Texas A&M University beginning with their Sophomore year. Within her first semester at A&M-Commerce she fell in love with the campus and made lifelong friends, so Lauren dropped the PSA program and stayed at Commerce to finish her bachelor's degree. A&M-Commerce became her home away from home. She is now back at her alma mater fulfilling her goal as an academic advisor and adjunct instructor.

A Conversation with Lauren Meyers

How do you help students at A&M-Commerce?

As an Academic Advisor and Adjunct Instructor, I am able to support students in the classroom setting as well as provide a pathway to graduation. I strive to give students the best guidance when it comes to their degree plan and their career goals. The saying “it takes a village” is so relevant in the higher education world. It definitely takes both faculty and staff to help the students grow and become ready for life after graduation.

What are your professional and personal goals?

One of my professional goals is to remain in higher Education and eventually become a Dean of Students at a 4-year university. That has been a goal of mine since I started my master’s program. A personal goal of mine is to travel to each state in the US and take a picture by each state sign.

What do you like most about your career?

My favorite aspect of my career is seeing the students progress throughout their degrees. I love when the students get excited about being one step closer to graduation. I ultimately just love being a support system for the students and offering them any type of guidance they may need during their time here at A&M-Commerce.
