Major: Biochemistry

“Coming into college I didn’t know what to expect. I had no idea how classes worked, what subjects I liked, or how to make new friends. I’ll admit, at first, everything felt so scary and I thought I was doing everything wrong. But I think it’s important to realize that all those feelings are normal. The transition from high school to college is a little bumpy. However, taking the steps to make new friends and having people you can talk to made everything a lot less intimidating. I’m still trying to figure things out, but I’ve realized I like my science courses more than my other classes.”
