Supporting comments: "Serving as president of University Programming Council, Lydia brought UPC to a new level and turned a good organization into an exceptional one. Her intellectual acuity is bolstered by a strong work ethic, an understanding of how to make things happen, and commitment to the life of the mind. Intensely focused on integrating her three fields of study - Economics, Art History, and East Asian Studies - Lydia is a doer, an initiator, a person with unbounded intellectual curiosity. She has modeled outstanding academic and intellectual leadership in the way in which she has gone after and seized her education rather than waiting for it to be delivered."
