Meet Andrew

Class of 2022

Andrew Lege

Andrew is an Economics, Applied Computational Mathematics and Statistics, and Theology major from Lafayette, Louisiana. However, his current home base for LEO is Grand Rapids, Michigan at a Catholic hospital where he is working in the Community Health and Well-Being Department to understand more deeply the hospital’s mission and the scope of its work. Being on the ground floor of a partner organization allows for Andrew to take a more detailed look for potential projects through which LEO can build evidence.

When we asked Andrew why he wanted to work for LEO, he said, “I am drawn to the mission of LEO and more specifically its work in the healthcare sector. LEO is giving me an amazing opportunity to further discern a career in healthcare administration by placing me in a Catholic hospital and allowing me to focus on the hospital's efforts to alleviate poverty in its community.”

Beyond his role on the LEO undergraduate team, Andrew is also highly involved at Notre Dame with his work in the de Nicola Center for Ethics and Culture Sorin Fellow Program, as a Right to Life Commissioner, with the Campus Ministry, and through Club Baseball. When on campus, Andrew’s favorite spot is the crucifix right off the path of St. Joseph's Lake.
