Meet Lauren Shackman ’22

My name is Lauren Shackman and I’m a sophomore from New York, NY. I am a potential French and Art History double major. As a Media Assistant, I help with technology assistance in the FCGS Language and Culture Hub! Most of the technology and programs I help with are related to learning languages, which I am very passionate about!

Here’s a picture of me taking a video of French110! I even learned some new words: ONG (which means NGO), and éolienne (which is wind turbine)


I am also a DJ for WESU where I have a stand-up comedy radio show for half an hour every week, a member of Awkward Silence, which is a stand-up comedy group on campus. I’m also in Absent Toast, which is the Wesleyan Shadow cast for the Rocky Horror Picture show. I’m Brad this semester!

This is a picture of me performing stand-up comedy at one of my favorite open mics in NYC!
