Unique from other Naval ROTC cadets at Penn State, Lauren Chapman, a soon to be second lieutenant in the United States Navy, also holds a spot on the school’s cheerleading team.  “Someone is always telling me how to wear my hair,” says Chapman, joking that her hairstyle is just one of the many aspects controlled her commitment to ROTC and cheerleading.  With just one semester of college between Chapman and her commissioning, she leads the life of both a girlish cheerleader as well as that of Navy officer in training.
