The Ola Lorens Memorial Travel Scholarship is offered in memory
of Design major Ola (Alexandra) Lorens (1991-2014) through the
generous gifts of Patrick and Ewa Lorens Kinney, Molly Kinney and
family, and Ann & Mike Savageau. Ola once said that she “came
alive” when she took her first design class at UC Davis. She
brought a playful and distinct vision to her work in all areas of
design. Her inventive style of drawing embodied a curious and
humor-filled approach to creation that Ola hoped might someday be
fulfilled with work as a maker of children’s books.

The ICC’s Liberal Arts student advisers are available to help you
with general questions about resumes, cover letters, interview
techniques, etc. There are drop-in
hours on the 2nd Floor of South Hall.
