Picture of Lauren R Kirkpatrick


Lauren grew up in Raleigh and went to Millbrook High School before she left the south for Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio. After earning her English degree, she lived in Boston for awhile, but she returned to North Carolina when she got too homesick for blue skies and temperate winters. She has lived here happily ever after.

Lauren is a proud Wolfpack alumna, having earned her Master of Arts in Liberal Studies at NC State.

Lauren has led the communications offices for a number of nonprofit organizations, including the Methodist Home for Children. She has directed communications for NC State's College of Humanities and Social Sciences since 2005.


Lauren is responsible for sharing Humanities and Social Sciences news and stories with alumni and friends of the college. She publishes the college's magazine, e-newsletters, and other print and electronic publications. She also gathers and disseminates news and information for and about our outstanding faculty, staff, students, and alumni using any available means.
