Student Spotlight: Lauren Poythress

photo of Lauren Poythress"I took the Introduction to Black World Studies course, taught by professor of global and intercultural studies Rodney Coates. Although it was intimidating at first, I ended up loving it. Dr. Coates really helped me out and made me interested in the material we were learning. It provided me with the background I need to know for law school, and although I first added Black World Studies as a minor, earlier this year I made it my second major!"

- Lauren Poythress, Class of 2020
