Bethesda, MarylandSarah Lawrence College
Whether solo, in an ensemble, or in a crowd of 500, Lauren lets her life sing at George School.

What was your most interesting class?

I have been in the film program with my teacher Scott Seraydarian ’90 for two years and made many films, including a dance film and several narratives. Film is a great creative outlet for me. Scott has taught me how to capture beautiful images of everyday life in a camera and how to edit on Final Cut Pro. There is always something new to learn.

Describe an exciting moment at George School.

I played Daisy Hilton in our production of Side Show, a musical about the conjoined Hilton sisters, who were vaudeville stars in the 1930s and ‘40s. I had never been in a musical before, and it was so fun. I was able to sing while learning a lot about theater, and I also got to work with an incredible cast and crew, who worked hard to make the show the success that it was.

What is it like to live in a dorm?

It’s like a sleepover with all your friends every night—with schoolwork. If you’re shy, it’s easier to socialize with people in the dorm, to get to know them and build tight friendships.

Describe a quintessential George School moment.

When we’re singing the George School hymn, everybody shouts the words “George School” at the top of their lungs.
