Summer 2012: ‘I Am Elon’ with Lauren Clapp ’13

"If more people got excited about vegetables, things would be a heck of a lot better." - Lauren Clapp '13 in a new "I Am Elon"


In the process of doing research for her Elon College Fellows final project, Lauren Clapp ’13, a human service studies and public health double major, learned that much of the eastern side of Burlington, N.C., is considered a food desert by the USDA. Together with her mentor, Beth Warner, associate professor and chair of the Department of Human Service Studies, Clapp is working to build a community garden in the city’s North Park at Mayco Bigelow Community Center.

Learn more about Clapp’s Elon experience in the summer 2012 installment of The Magazine of Elon‘s “I Am Elon” multimedia series featuring Elon students in their own words.
