Laura Ballou

Associate Director, Wilson Commons Student Activities

I oversee the operations and facilities of Wilson Commons including student employment, reservations, and event support. I serve as the adviser for the Class Councils and co-advise the Students’ Association. I also organize Wilson Commons Wednesday and Wake Up in Wilson, two of our community building programs. I received my BA in psychology from the University of Rochester and my MSW from the University of Michigan. I am an active volunteer for ACUI (Association of College Unions International). In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my husband (also a UR graduate), being outdoors, reading, and traveling. I can be reached at
