Hola Everyone! =]
I’m Lori Allan – a Freshmen here at the University of Detroit Mercy!
I came here to fulfill my passion –> Architecture. I stay here on campus in Shiple Hall waaaaay up on the 7th floor with my awesome roomate. How ironic is it that 2 Valedictorians get placed in the same room? In the summer, I took the stairs as much as possible. 84 stairs to be exact. (Yes, I counted!) So in about a year, I figured I’d be very fit for the track team if I ever decided to join.
I am from Detroit and I think it’s a lovely city! I love walking along the river Downtown. It’s really pretty day or night. I am the 3rd oldest of 6. 3 girls.. 3 boys. They’re the best. I am a mix of black, white and West Indian. (Jamaican) Yeah, Mon’
I listen to a lot of different types of music genres. Is it weird I listen to a few Christmas songs here-and-there in the summer? Ha ha ha. Writing is one of my favorite things to do. I am a reporter and writer for the Varsity News. I also work for the admissions office and it is my job to blog about what I do around campus or about UDM for perspective students. (www.blogs.udmercy.edu)
This previous summer and the summer before, I worked at Dairy Queen which was the best! I started collecting quotes a couple years ago so I can relate a quote to any situation. I just finished my 4th quote book yesterday. I love to laugh so the quote for today will be:
“The most wasted day is one in which you have not laughed.” -Unknown
I stay pretty busy here. I have class from 2-6 everyday including a couple classes in the morning. I see a new face on campus everyday when I’m in the library or the Titan Dining Room which is pretty refreshing. Plus, there’s always an event that allows you to interact with the students and staff here.
P.S. The title of this post are my initials but sounded out (if that makes sense) L = Elle and A = Ay
