Favorite and/or most impactful course

General Chemistry 109 has made the biggest impact on me because it really adjusted me to a rigorous college course. I believe that this class will also prepare me the most for future difficult classes. And lastly, I know the relationships I have already started to build within the Chemistry Department will benefit me down the road. My favorite course so far in college has also been General Chemistry 109. Building off my answer about which class has made the biggest impact on me, it comes back to the people associated within this class. All have been extremely kind and helpful towards me since the beginning of the semester. I have been very much appreciative.

Other involvement

I am apart of SigEp, a fraternity here on campus. Within the house I am my Freshman Class Social Chair, where I plan events for my pledge class. I was just elected as the House Social where I will plan formals and larger events for the entire house. I also have a leadership position in a Professional Development Program within the house. I try to attend AMSA, MUNA and NU-Meds as much as I possibly can when my schedule will allow. I have had the chance to volunteer through MUNA as well, where I helped sell cookies at the Union to raise money for refugees here in Lincoln. I have also volunteered at the Malone Center when my fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon (SigEp), went to help those in need gather food, turkeys, coats, gloves, and socks, etc. Over break I am planning on volunteering at places like the Boys and Girls Club, Clinic with a Heart, a homeless shelter, and/or a food drive. Lastly, I was just interviewed for an ASUN committee position that I am waiting to hear back from. I am still looking for things to become apart of both on and off of campus to better diversify myself!

Why you chose Nebraska

I chose to attend UNL because I am on the pre-med track and UNL has strong majors and classes that align accordingly. Lincoln is also my hometown, so it's nice being close to home. And almost everyone I've met on campus has been very pleasant.
