The Chimes

Lauren McBride
Lauren McBride is a junior Cinema and Media Arts major who enjoys storytelling, thunderstorms, and a good cup of coffee.



I have loved all forms of art for as long as I can remember.  After taking art classes and developing a love for writing throughout my life, I eventually dared to dive into the world of film production.  Coming to Biola from my little bubble in Dallas, Texas, where I had lived my whole life, was a huge step for me, but allowed me to discover my passions more fully.

Being a Cinema & Media Arts major and a Journalism minor has allowed me to combine my loves for both film and writing.  In addition to being a part of the process of creating films, I enjoy watching and analyzing them.  Writing for the Arts & Entertainment section of the Chimes has allowed me to do not only that, but learn so much more about writing about the arts.  I am thankful to be a part of this team.
