Dr. Lauren Newsom
Denver, CO
Biology, Pre-Vet Option

I was born in Denver, Colorado but have called Oregon my home for many years now. I graduated from Wilsonville High School in 2013 and completed my associate degree at Portland Community College earlier this year. I've loved animals and have been interested in veterinary medicine ever since I was a little kid. It's this love for animals that drives me toward my goal of becoming a veterinarian.
In my free time, I enjoy volunteering at my local dog shelter, hiking with my dog Louie, crafting, and spending time with my family.
I am very excited to be joining Oregon State as a transfer student and being a part of the Pre-Veterinary Scholars Program. Go Beavs!
