We are happy to offer a warm welcome and introduction to Ball State alumna and one of CSH’s new faculty members: Lauren Frasier.
Lauren Frasier (she/her) joined the Department of Psychological Science this semester as an Assistant Lecturer of Psychological Science. Lauren currently teaches PSYS 284: Research Methods in Psychological Science, PSYS 295: Career Planning in Psychology, and PSYS 362: Motivation and Emotion.
Where are you from?
I am a proud Ball State graduate now living in Fishers with my husband and nine-year-old son. I’m originally from Northwest Indiana. The Chicago accent sneaks out occasionally.
What are some of your hobbies/non-academic interests?
Our family loves to travel. Last year we went to Colombia. This year, the Bahamas, the Canary Islands, and Japan are on our list. My son and I are teaching ourselves Japanese to be prepared for this trip that we’ve postponed since COVID began. I also enjoy exercising and running, recently completing a half marathon and I now have my sights on a full marathon in 2023 if I can stay injury-free.
What are some of your goals for your first year as a staff member here?
I am a Ball State alumnus and felt very connected to the department when I was here. My goal is to provide the same feelings of comfort and belonging to other students in the psychology department.
