艰难的类

“The Organisms, Systems, & 人口 生物学 class was the toughest for me. I had a rough start getting into the material, it took me more time to process how an organism functions.

Biggest surprise

Advice for other students in your major?

“If you are bilingual, take advantage of it and major in a modern language. It is a great skill to have because not only do you get to sharpen your language more, but you also get to interact with other students and professors who may even speak that language. I know for me that it’s always nice getting to speak my native language with others.”
