January Staff Senate Spotlight

Picture of Lauren BurtonLauren Burton

Advisor, TRIO Programs

How long have you worked at UNT?

I have worked at UNT since 2011.

What is your department and what does your position entail?

I work in the TRIO department, with the Talent Search program. I provide college prep assistance to students in the 7th through 12th grades.

What do you like about your position?

We advise based on the students’ career interests so one of my favorite things is learning about many different career paths. Seeing students making progress toward their long-awaited career is awesome.

What is your favorite place to eat on or around campus?

Lol, I used to really enjoy Salata, but I think it closed. The Bruce Hall cafeteria has a pretty great salad bar too though!

Tell us something about yourself!

I ran for Staff Senate because I really enjoy working at UNT, and I want others to enjoy it as well. I hope people feel comfortable reaching out to me with their questions or suggestions for making UNT an even better place to work.
