Why you chose your major

Biological Sciences seemed to be the best fit for preparing me for the MCAT or other medical research fields should I choose to switch. I liked the anthropology and humanity in medicine minors because they gave me an opportunity to break up my heavy science schedule while still learning relevant and interesting topics.

Favorite and/or most impactful course

BIOS 136 also known as Virus Hunting was my most interesting class first semester. This lab kept me engaged, gave me an opportunity to meet people during covid, and challenged the way I was used to learning.

Research or internship experience

I have not been able to get a research or intern position while at school yet, but BIOS 136 was a research based course that taught me lab skills and documentation, and allowed me to follow my project throughout the semester.

Other involvement

I am a volunteer at Husker Pantry, I am working at the covid testing pods on campus this spring, I am also involved in UNL MUNA, Medlife, and the Prehealth club.

Why you chose Nebraska

I liked the pre-med program, honors program, and they provided good out of state aid.
