"In Lauren, I know I am getting a great golfer but also a great person and family of supporters. In a short time Lauren has proven to me that she is an athlete who understands the Wonderful opportunity that's been given her and she will spend the next four years Achieving her goals through dedication and hard work. She has all the great qualities Coaches look for in a recruit and I have no doubt she will make a major impact on our Program. The team and the ODU community are so excited to welcome her in the fall." -ODU Head Coach Carol Robertson.

"I chose ODU because the school's atmosphere and people seem so happy and upbeat to be around. Coach Robertson seems dedicated to her work and making the team better each year. The girls on the team are so nice and outgoing, they made me feel like I was not only part of the team, but also a part of the golf family. ODU made my choice for picking a college an easy one. It has so much to offer, from my major, to every aspect of making me a better student and a better golfer.
