“I really value the personal relationships I have with my professors, and I’ve found a lot of my peers at bigger schools don’t have that. Between group discussions, asking questions in class and office hours, we really have the opportunity to get to know who is teaching us.”
“Being a resident assistant has been life changing because it opens your eyes to the world around you. You go from being responsible for yourself to being responsible for 30 to 40 students who all come from different backgrounds and have different struggles. Your residents trust and look up to you, and it really opens you up to a new perspective.”
“I would like to be a pediatric neurosurgeon but, when I retire, I really want to start a foundation for underprivileged high school kids. I’d like to own an extracurricular activities center for teens who wouldn’t otherwise have those opportunities. More than anything I want to embody happiness and encourage them to attain their dreams to attend college.”
“So many freshmen find themselves caught up in the social scene or the academic scene, but it’s a two-way street. It’s all about learning to balance and taking each day as they come. Live in the moment, rather than stressing yourself out.”
“After receiving my diploma, I am so excited to get accepted to medical school. I can’t wait for the next chapter in my life and taking another baby step closer to my dream of becoming a pediatric neurosurgeon. My undergraduate experience has been great and every stage of my life has something different to offer.”
“I picked up knitting when I turned 16 and decided that I wanted to be a surgeon. It’s great for hand-eye coordination and as a surgeon that’s really important. Even better yet, it helps me to relieve stress. Sometimes I even knit in class.”
