Biological Sciences, Economics (Pre-Health)
Why you chose your major
I chose my majors for two primary reasons. The first reason was because of my personal interests. I have always been curious about learning the science of life, and from previous classes and clubs I found that economics was something I would love to study. My second reason I chose my majors was to cater towards my future goals. I one day hope to be a physician, and having a background in both Biology and Economics opens many opportunities.
Favorite and/or most impactful course
The class which challenged me the most was also the one that had the biggest impact on me. Last semester I had the opportunity to take an Honors program Environmental Studies class. Each week we were presented a world issue and learned about it, and later in the week we would have a class discussion. This class not only broadened my views and taught me about issues I may have never heard of, but it also taught me how to tackle problems from many sides and form educated opinions on very difficult topics.
Research or internship experience
I have yet to have a fully Nebraska research project or internship, but as I have been going through the application process, I have realized how much the university has done for me and how many opportunities there are for me to get involved.
I am involved in Greek Life, where I am a member of FarmHouse Fraternity. On campus I am a part of Dance Marathon, being a morale captain, and I am a member of the Biochemistry club. I am also involved in the University Honors program.
Why you chose Nebraska
I chose to come to Nebraska because it was the perfect college for me. It has a wonderful educational program that gives me the tools to succeed. There are countless opportunities to get involved with clubs, research, and internships which was a huge appeal for me. Being from Omaha, Nebraska also gives me the independence I wanted without being too far away from home. Nebraska was the perfect place for me, and I am realizing that more and more everyday.
