Hello! My name is Lauren Bledsoe. I came to the University of Missouri–St. Louis in August 2016 and spent several years as an Admissions Representative in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. In May of 2020, I transitioned to the College of Arts and Sciences as the Recruitment Coordinator. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Public Relations from Southeast Missouri State University in 2015 and my Master’s Degree in Higher Education from the University of Missouri–>St. Louis in 2019. After starting at UMSL in 2016, I quickly discovered my passion for Higher Education and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at UMSL so far. I am so excited to be a part of the College of Arts and Sciences and get to work with our fabulous students, faculty, staff, and advisors every single day. I look forward to getting to know students on a more personal level and showing students across the country how great the CAS department at the University of Missouri–St. Louis is!
